I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. - Isaiah 41:13 (NIV)
“Hold my hand as we cross this road, son,” I said to my then five-year-old. “No, Mama. You hold my hand,” he responded. As we rushed across the road, I wondered about his request; so later I asked him what he meant when he asked me to hold his hand....
My heavenly Father will never let go of my hand.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
