I ran across this quote today; it fairly leaped out of the page:
'Cling to me now, my God, for I have lost the will to cling to you.'
In every person's life, there are seasons when this is the case. Where we are too weary to hold on any longer. The thing I find remarkable is not that we find ourselves in situations where we have lost the impetus to clutch for the Divine, but that in all His Soverien Majesty, the God of the Universe chooses to cling to us.
(John 10:28-29 (Jesus speaking) I give them (those who believe) eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[a]; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.)
I need to know this today. Because my grasp is weak. Just grateful his is unrelentingly secure.
