You Take My Hand

This day has been a pretty discouraging day for me.  In the midst of many complicated circumstances, I allowed the devil to convince me that I was a low-life again.  I heard so many voices today speaking opinions over my life, and I became totally involved in those thoughts.  I fully prepared to enter my time of prayer tonight making list after list of the things that I want God to change in me – and that list would be long – and to be honest, I was nervous to enter God’s presence.

Then the song “Who Can Compare” by Mary Kat Ehrenzeller came on.  The words to the chorus are as follows:

And You take my hand and You guide me on

And You show me the way to life

And You lift my head and You give me hope

And You show me the way to life

It’s not to say that there aren’t some big things that God wants to change in me, but the fear to face God was wrong.  God challenges me in BIG ways, but He reminded me in a beautiful way tonight that He will take my hand, He will guide me, He will lift my head, and He is the One who gives me hope.  As my friend reminded me today, God believes in me.

As I prepare to explore the depths of God’s grace tonight and seek to be transformed by His Spirit, I wanted to share these words with you.  Perhaps you need to hear this right now.  I don’t know what circumstances you are facing, but your God will take your hand, He will guide you, He will lift your head, and He will give you hope.  He believes in you!  Be encouraged tonight, my friend!
