Asleep In My Arms
My baby falls asleep in my arms. His expression is one of peace, of contentment, and of complete trust. He has no fear or worry that something may happen to him. He trusts I won’t drop him. He knows he’s being held in the arms of the one who loves him, cares for him, provides for him. And he rests.
Can you rest in your Father’s arms? Can you sleep in His peace? After all He is the one who loves you, cares for you, and provides for you. When in His presence can you be at peace? Content? Completely trusting?
Like a shepherd, he will care for his flock, gathering the lambs in his arms, Hugging them as he carries them, leading the nursing ewes to good pasture. The Creator of All You Can See or Imagine
. . . You’re at least decent to your own children. So don’t you think the God who conceived you in love will be even better?
