Potential: Hang Onto God’s Hand
By Karen Anderson
Can you see it? I mean, can you really see what is there before you?! One beautiful evening at the Monterey shoreline, my soul-sister, Debra-Diane and I were just watching the sunset. We saw one of the most beautiful sunsets with the varying clouds and color. As we watched we both saw something changing in the clouds. She started clicking away with her camera as the sunset changed. It was an open hand with another coming together as if to pray…it was the “Hands of God!” We stood there in awe realizing what a gift this was.
You see what looked like some beautiful clouds and a beautiful scene as the sun set slowly behind it; but there was so much more. God’s gift to us was that we have so much potential that we need to grab onto His hand and let Him lead us. You may not see that potential at first. Yet as you let your life develop, things you did not see at first become very clear.
Reach out dear ones, take hold of the hand of God and walk into a life full of the possibilities God has for you. Don’t shrink back, because His loving hands will guide you. Every time I see this picture it reminds me that I will never let go of God’s hand again.
