Holding onto God

Isn't it wonderful to know that where the Lord leads you, He never takes his hand from you? In fact, His hand holds us! That is so awesome! We need never feel alone or dejected because He is with us.

I've had a rather sad day. Nothing horrible - just feeling unimportant to a friend and hurt regarding her insensitive attitude. She's normally not like that, so I know it's probably due to the stresses in her own life. I'm trying really hard not to take it personally and honestly, without God, I would be doing just that. He makes me see things from her perspective and allows me to have forgiveness and understanding. His hand holds me and keeps me upright; thinking and feeling compassion for my sister in Christ. It doesn't mean my feelings aren't hurt, but through the Lord, I can forgive and love her, regardless.

Isn't that what it's really all about? As the beautiful song says, "They will know we are Christians by our love." I hope others see that I am a Christian.
