After a busy day yesterday, I slipped into bed with thoughts about all the good things which had happened that day. It had been a good day!
I stretched, turned and wham! It hit me. Something I did... perhaps some small movement I made triggered something and I cried out with fear, remembering and yet not remembering when I lay in that bed last winter battling for my life.
My husband heard my cry and even though he was sleeping, he knew what it was for he had heard it a few times before. Even as the sobs rose to my lips, he was wrapping his arms around me and pulled me close; reminding me that I was not alone in the dark.
Instantly I was reminded of the One who hears our every cry and cradles us in His strong arms. The One who whispers, "I am with you". The One who says "I will never leave you nor forsake you." The One who walks with us beside still waters in green pastures and through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. The One who loves us so much, He willingly died for us and rose again so that we might live... our Defender, our Protector, our Provider, our Healer, our Comforter and our Savior.
And I fell peacefully asleep knowing that God has me no matter what... and He has you too!
I so love the song. First time I heard of it.
Thank you for sharing.. :)
When I was younger.. I call GOD as.. "Daddy"..
Years later.. I told Him that i've grown older.. no longer His baby or little girl.
I may have grown older..
but running to Him at night when something hurts me
or fear strikes me never get out of style in my life. :)
Guess, I'm still His little girl..
hugs May the LORD continue to fill your heart w/ security, love, peace, joy and gladness. :)
