“For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice. My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me.” ~ Psalm 63:7,8, Amplified Study Bible

The sand swirled about her feet as the hungry tide rushed in to devour the shore. Her knees buckled a little. The power of the wave tugged at her. The earth beneath her small frame began sinking as the rocky granules raced into the sea.

Balance was difficult.
Unseen forces pulled at her.
The surf demanded that she stay her ground or topple headlong into its briny belly.

In the midst of the girl’s uncertainty, a hand touched her shoulder. A strong hand. A gentle hand. She recognized the calloused palm of her father, his tender voice calling her name.

“I’m here. Take my hand and I’ll lead you out of the shifting sand,” he said.

The young girl grasped her father’s hand. She leaned into him taking his strength upon herself, clinging closely to free her body from the power of the consuming tide.

Together the girl and her father walked to safety. With her father close by her side, the girl was no longer afraid.

Is the sand beneath your feet shifting, plunging you headlong into an uncertain future? Reach out. Stretch those fingers until they interlock with the One Who holds your future securely in His love. He will never fail You. He will never leave You. Cling closely to Him as He leads You step by step all through your life. You need only to take hold of His nail-scarred hand.
