On the ropes

I led Israel along with my ropes of kindness and love. I lifted the yoke from his neck, and I myself stooped to feed him. Is. 11:4

The tender, gentle way that Christ takes care of us reminds me of those guide ropes that pre-schoolers hold to walk across the street. With kindness and love God offers direction so we don’t wander off into danger. He knows what each one of us has to carry, so He keeps us together to lighten the load, He feeds us and gives us rest.

Lord,  I’m holding on to the rope, so grateful for your nurturing love and provision.
