What does it mean to say that God’s right hand holds me?
Over the course of our lifetime, we become so much attuned to what society wants of us that we forget who we truly are. Our spiritual side becomes covered by so many layers of vulnerable humanity that it is almost impossible for us to see our true selves. Aren’t we fortunate that God comes to us and listens to our hidden cries of helplessness and hopelessness? This is repeated more times than we are aware.
Throughout our lifetime, we are on an endless journey whose destination is often hidden and therefore never reached. Both our purpose and our destiny seem to be without end, hidden by our institutionalized view of our lives. Hidden but not lost! When we see the Truth, the one God wants from us, we shudder, fearing the impossible, unbelieving to hear God’s voice reminding us of why we are where we are.
God breaks through the clouds of misunderstanding that humanity has taught us throughout our lifetime. Brotherly love replaces jealousy; affection and honor enrich our relationships. Our walls of artificial strength are pierced time after time by God’s Love and God’s message that we in fact become love. We become that perfect reflection of God, immortal, eternal.
