One of the BEST moments for me after I meet someone’s child (who is around toddler age ) is when he or she finally feels comfortable enough to make eye contact with me and then next — cracks open a smile. However, the most exhilarating moment is when that little one r e a c h e s out his/her arms – wanting me to hold them. They aren’t capable of verbalizing what they’re feeling, but words really aren’t needed. That action reveals their trust.
The same is true for us and our relationship with Jesus. We don’t have to know fancy, King James Version type words in order to let our Savior know that we trust him, love Him, want Him to hold us or carry us, OR that we need HIS love and forgiveness. We just need to be willing to let go of whatever it is that’s holding us back and either clasp our hands together and tell HIM what’s on our heart — or lift up our hands as if we are reaching out to God, our father.
Letting go of my past and surrendering my life to Jesus was the best moment of my life. It was humbling. Exhilarating. Life-changing.
Thank you, Jesus, for waiting on me to trust you. Thank you for embracing me with your love.
