Yesterday I hung my hammock in a nearby park and was relaxing, when a little girl came over and started climbing the tree I was hanging on. She wasn’t bothering me at all, I’m fact, I thought she was quite adorable. Following close behind was her dad, and he stood behind her as she started to climb up the tree. In her little squeaky voice, she said, “Daddy? You’ll catch me if I fall, right?” That comment squeezed my tender heart, lemme tell ya!
“Who will catch me if I fall?”
I truly believe that toughest, most independent women out there are asking the same question, and longing for the same “oneness” that we all desire.
Lucky for women (and men) everywhere, Jesus came.
The Lord Almighty says, “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.” Psalms 55:22
“If you make the Most High your dwelling-even the Lord who is my refuge-then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near to your tent. For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.” Psalms 91:9-12
“He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.” Psalms 91:4
I don’t know your life story. I don’t know your father and if he’s hurt you or not, but I do know that there’s a lot of kids out there who don’t have a father. I’m here to tell y’all that you do have a Father, and He is the perfect, all-knowing, protector, and peace. Whether you trip, fall, or dive off a cliff, He’s gonna catch you.
