Carry Me!

She crawls toward me
with a wide smile on her face
moving briskly with her hands on the floor
She stops at my feet, looks up at me and smiles again
Then she throws her hands open wide
Her expresssions and actions saying it all Carry Me!

Knowing what she wanted
I reached out
lifting her off the ground
I felt the satisfaction, the joy of being lifted.

Much more for the cuddle that comes with carring her
the warmth of the embrace
and the sense of safety that comes from being held

Throw all your worry on him, because he cares for you. - 1Pe 5:7

Have you ever faced any situation where you felt the need to be carried, embraced or held?
We all have cares and worries.
Just like a little child, throw your hands open
God's hands are open wide always ready for us
We only need to make that effort of releasing ourself

Haven't we all been in such vulnerable positions?

Great poem.

'God's hands are open wide always ready for us
We only need to make that effort of releasing ourself' Right you are! All we need to do is relax and trust him.
