In God?s Hand

A budgie is a small bird. My daughter has a budgie named Bellamy. Bellamy is very active and likes to get into trouble. We have to watch Bellamy all the time so that he doesn?t get hurt.
My daughter takes care of Bellamy. Why? Because she loves him. Sometimes Bellamy sits in my daughter?s hand. Then Bellamy is safe. Nothing bad will happen to him when my daughter holds him.
God takes care of us in the same way. He continually watches over us, protects us and provides for us. We are safe when we are in God?s hand (protection). Psalm 139:9-10 says, ?Lord, if I go east where the sun rises, you are there. If I go west to the sea, you are there. Even there your right hand holds me, and you lead me by the hand.?
Our Bible Reading today reminds us how much God loves us. Verse 9 says, ?This is how God showed his love to us: God sent his only Son into the world to give us life through him.? Because God loves us, He is willing to take care of us. I hope you will allow God to show you His love today.
