Justin and I had a little extra time today so we stopped at a playground we never played at before. He wanted to give the monkey bars a try, but wanted me to hold on to him too. He would go about three bars and then tell me to let go, squirm for a minute, then holler for me to hold him again. We continued in this fashion back and forth across the monkey bars a few times. Each time, he would be sure he was ready to do it alone. Each time, I would let go but stay close enough to catch him when he needed me to.
I feel like there were some lessons from God in this. We are so sure we want to head out without him, but end up floundering on our own and seeking his safe embrace. But bigger than that, He promises to always answer when we call. He will not leave us to kick and flounder about.
He is our ever present help in time of need. Psalm 46:1.
