Many years ago, a young Deaf couple had a baby. At that time, there were no baby cry alerts to let the mother know when her baby was crying. What did she do? At night, she tied a string around her baby’s foot. Then the mother put the string down the hall and into her own bedroom. Finally, she tied the string around her own hand.
During the night when the baby cried and moved, the string moved, too. This woke up the mother. Sometimes the baby would move around and not be crying. But the mother would always get up and make sure that her baby was okay. What a great example of a mother’s love!
God loves us even more than a mother loves her child. Psalm 121:3 tells us something about God, who is our Protector. “He will not let you fall. Your Protector will not fall asleep.” God doesn’t sleep. He is always ready to protect us. Another verse in the Bible tells us that God even knows the number of hairs on our heads. Wow! God really cares about each one of us. He is always willing to help us and show us His love.
Think about the many ways that God takes care of you today. Thank Him for His protection.
