Gathered Into His Arms

Posted on: 7-15-112011

Sometimes life can be hard! So hard, in fact, that we are stripped of every single thread of strength we have. We get to a place where we can absolutely not go on any further. We are exhausted…physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We have nothing left to give, yet we must continue on if we are not to slip into the depths of total despair. For those ho belong to Christ, we do not have to succumb to those depths, however, because He is our hope who carries us through the darkest times in our life. Just like a good earthly father, our heavenly Father knows when we’ve reached the end of ourselves. And that is exactly when He reaches down from heaven and gathers us into His arms! The Bible often refers to God as our Shepherd…it portrays Him as watching over us as a shepherd would his flock. He provides for us, He protects us, He guides us, and He cares for us. I love the picture the following Scripture paints of our Shepherd caring for us, His flock.

“He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arms, and carry them in His bosom…” Isaiah 40:11

What a precious picture…our Savior gathering us in His arms and carrying us in His bosom!
