Holding His Hand
It was a beautiful sunday afternoon. The weather had finally cooled after an extremely hot, dry summer. I was peeling and slicing apples for the first apple pie of the season, listening to old hymns on the radio. I’m not even sure which hymn it was that prompted the idea, but as I was listening I thought how wonderful it will be the day I get to heaven. In my mind I pictured Jesus there waiting for me. He extended His hand, and placing my hand in His, I followed Him into Paradise. “Oh Lord,” I said “how miraculously marvelous that day will be. I can hardly wait.”
Then I “heard” a gentle whisper. It doesn’t happen often, but there are times I know in my heart that He has spoken to me. “My dear child, that is exactly what I am doing for you right now.” ........
The rest of my devotional is at Laced With Grace today. I would be honored if you would join me there.
