Sweet little Olive has had a cold and just has not been herself the last few days. This weekend, she has wanted to be held anytime she was not sleeping. I have really enjoyed getting to snuggle with her, I just wish she felt better. Today as I was holding her, I realized how comforting it was for her as she was able to relax and fall asleep. We are so lucky that we have someone to hold us when we need it too. Our heavenly father steps in everytime he sees that we need it and holds us when we can't hold ourselves. And he holds us for as long as we need him to. Even a couple of years!
It makes me think of the lyrics from Natalie Grant's song "Held". They say:
"This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held."
The next few weeks I know that God will be holding our entire family in his arms as we face the trial. It is such a comforting feeling to know that when all else fails, we will be held.
