He Never Let Go

As a young man, I was afraid of nothing and rebelled at everything. I was wild, always testing the rules and boundaries, and actually made the statement, more than once, that I didn’t think I’d live to see my 21st birthday. I lived life like there would be no tomorrow, and for most of my life I was amazed I was still standing.

Then things changed; I didn’t have one of those lightning bolt experiences, and the fact is I wasn’t even looking for help or seeking to change. It just began, as I quite suddenly realized I’d lived far past my expectations not because I was unafraid, but because I was a part of God’s plan. I learned that even when I wasn’t aware of Him, or His plan, He was still using me.

All those years… years when I thought it was me against the world… He never let go of my hand. I am in awe of God’s love.

For 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

    Still amazed! But in a much different way.

  3. I have no doubt that He placed you where I could see Him more clearly through your inspirational messages. God is Good!

    • Susan… I am literally stunned by your comment. No one has ever said anything like that to me. As you are aware, I want nothing more than to make people laugh and to encourage them. And, I’ve said it before, if something I say or write helps one person, that’s enough. Thank you for saying so boldly that you are helped by what I say. There isn’t enough time, and there aren’t enough words to tell you how much your comment blesses me.
