I’m Held by God
“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of My hand.” John 10:28
Partying pulled me from my faith for a season. It promised much but delivered little. As I drew closer to Christ, that which initially felt fun and exciting left me empty and sad. The Holy Spirit within tugged me toward a better life.
The life befitting a daughter of Christ.
I was His, sealed, created anew. I am held secure by God Himself. He knows me. He calls me by name. I know Him and follow His voice.
If at any time, I start to wander, He finds me and leads me back into His arms. He doesn’t abandon me. He doesn’t forget about me.
Has sinful living started to entice you? Maybe you worry you’ve strayed too far, sinned too much, for God to ever welcome you back. But that’s simply not true. God’s grace is big enough and strong enough to cover your worst moral failings. Mine too. We are held secure by the One who holds all.
