“I had tried for months to get better. Well, I was going through the motions. My heart though, wanted to keep running and hiding. I had dug myself into this hole and instead of reaching up to the hand trying to pull me to safety I thought it would be better to keep digging. For the first time, I decided to take the hand.” – excerpt from Taryn’s Story
Sometimes it seems like everything is stacked against us, that everything is going wrong. Taryn talks above about “taking the hand”, about daring to hope in the promises that God cares for us enough to rescue us when we can’t seem to get it together ourselves. With that hope there’s no reason to fear what has happened, or is happening to us, or even what might happen. By holding onto the hope that God is who He says He is, and that He loves us inspite of our screwed-up lives, we can let go of the fear and know that He is for us. He is fighting for us. He is working all of the details out for our good and for the plans He has for us. That’s where Taryn found her hope. That’s where I’ve found mine. There’s no room for fear here.
