His Desire for our Good

Just a week or so after arriving in Brazil, we went into the nearby town to get some idea of what it was like. As we began our walk in the busy area, one of my daughters grabbed my hand and said, “I’m holding Dad’s hand, that way I know I’ll be safe!”
Everything that seemed strange then is quite familiar now, but I reflect on her comment often. She believed I would keep her life safe, and with all my ability I would do as much as I’m able. When I parallel her thoughts with that of believers and our faith in God, I recognize the reality that He is not only able far above our ability, but that His desire for our good is equally mighty!
