Hold Me Daddy

Tears were streaming down my face. I couldn’t hide the pain any longer. Hi, I’m Renee Swope with Proverbs 31 Ministries. One Sunday I found myself sobbing during church. I’d been struggling with hurts that I’d kept bottled up inside and now I was struggling to hold it together in front of the people around me. I thought the songs would distract me, but they only melted the walls around my heart, so I closed my eyes. And in that secret place with no one else in view, I sensed God’s presence in a powerful way.

Like a little girl standing at her father’s knees I felt my arms go up as if to say, “Hold me Daddy.” That’s what I needed – to come to my Father, God, and let Him know that my heart hurt. It was a risk because others could see me. But it didn’t matter anymore. I needed to be held. Maybe that’s what you need. God is waiting to hold you with His love and help you through the pain!
