Yesterday, while my family went for a hike, there were places where the trails were narrow, and there was quite a drop over the edge. The most dangerous places had guardrails, but some did not.
I am one of those people who do not like heights at all. My husband, in his kindness and knowledge of my fear of heights, reached out and took my hand. And when only one of us could fit on the narrow trail at a time, he told me to hold on to the crook of his arm.
As I think about that this morning, isn’t that how Jesus walks with us through life? At the narrow parts, where it gets hard, or we’re fearful, He offers us his hand and supports us along the way.
Can’t you hear Him whisper, “It’s Ok, I’m with you.”
So next time you’re in a narrow spot in life, a spot where you may be fearful or it’s hard to take the next step, remember Jesus is standing next to you, holding your right hand. He’s walking with you through this part of the journey, and you are never ever alone.
Yet I still belong to you; you hold my right hand (Psalm 73:23 NLT).
