Get a Grip

Bible Verse: Nahum 7:1.

The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

Get a grip

Whenever possible, I like to walk on the beach, grab a handful of sand, and sift it through my fingers. The fine granules trickle away and the larger particles — smooth pebbles or pieces of eroded glass — are left behind. Every now and then, life feels like it’s slipping right through our fingers. There’s always so much to do and so little time or resources to do it with. There seems to be so few opportunities to connect with the ones we love.

It seems like the opportunities to make our lives better and more fulfilled are slipping away. The more money we make the more we spend. When can we enjoy the fruits of our labour? How many bad relationships must we experience before we can relax and enjoy one that speaks to our spirit and waters our soul? Just when we think we have a firm grip on life, we end up hanging on by our fingernails!

When Jesus came, He offered everyday people something they had never thought possible. He offered them rest from their labours and the ability to experience joy in their daily tasks. We can also grab hold of that joy and the peace that will allow us to master any situation.

Don’t let the sands of time run through your fingers. Grab hold of the promises that God has provided. Now is the time to start living the life He has intended for you. Take hold of the covenant the Lord has established and seize your inheritance. His grip is sure, and His hand will never let you go.
