My uncle loved to pick me up (or I begged him to do so, I can’t recall). He would hold me tight and spin, as I threw out my arms as though I could fly! We would go so fast that the wind would whip through my hair. Then, he would toss me high into the air and he would shout, “Super Girl!” I would laugh, having no fear of being dropped, and then I’d scream, “do it again, do it again!” My eyes are full of tears as I write this sweet memory. I recall the “freedom” and “security” from trusting my uncle’s grip on me. I loved to fly through the air! Perhaps this has contributed to my “free- spirit!”
This painting is a reminder of the mercy that flows from the hands of God. If you will notice, the sky is grey and thick with clouds. No clear vision of things to come or even things of present can be seen; only storms all about. The sea is stormy as the billows rise and fall with the deep waves indicating no calm, only fierce winds and trouble. Out of the darkness and the clouded way, the hands of the Father seem to cradle the girl, protecting her from the storm. If you look at her eyes, you will notice that they are looking at the one who is holding and carrying her, keeping her safe from harm. Her face shows no fear but reflects a trust in the One whose hands hold her tightly. The title of the painting is Safe In His Hands by C. Hall. The scripture reference for it is Psalm 91.
You think God might be trying to tell me something?
Perhaps He is speaking to you as well.
Shhh! Let Him carry you!
And if you want to be totally blessed, spend some time listening to today's sermon by Kevin McKee on the Chapel website: www.thechapelbr.com the 9:00 am LSU service entitled I Am Adopted.
