In His Arms

Description

Remember that when you in swim in life’s deep holes and muddy waters, your Father’s arms are just below the surface.

"The eternal God is a dwelling place, And underneath are the everlasting arms; And He drove out the enemy from before you, And said, 'Destroy!'” Deuteronomy 33:27

I was a kid trying to balance macho and anxiety that day as my dad taught me to swim in the muddy creek. I stepped in, stiff as a pine log. “Relax, son,” my dad said. “I’ll put my arms under you, and when you begin to sink, I’ll be right there.” I started sinking, but felt his sturdy arms holding me up. Everything changed knowing his arms were there. I trusted, relaxed, and luxuriated in the security of the arms holding me up. Remember that when you “swim” in life’s deep holes and muddy waters, your Father’s arms are just below the surface.
