We enjoyed being outside, and being with each other…then we noticed the lake that was frozen over. Being from California where we don’t see much of that it was calling my name! Hudson and I walked out on the small boat dock and I just had to see how thick the ice was…it was really thick!
Amy snapped these photos of Hudson and I playing with the ice. When I saw them I immediately thought…that looks dangerous and then…that is exactly how we are to be with our Heavenly Father! Look how much fun Hudson is having..totally trusting daddy to hang on to him. He is full of joy and not at all scared or tentative.
How many times do we actually enjoy walking on the ice of life with this kind of joy and peace? What ice are you facing today that threatens to push your heart into fear and mistrust? Where in your life do you need to hold daddy’s hand and simply enjoy being with Him? How and where in your life can you allow your emotions to trust in Abba Father enjoying the adventure of the life He is giving you?
I think many times we forget that He is really holding tightly onto us. I know that when my eyes look down and see the thin ice that I feel like I am walking on each day I am always tempted to freak out instead of trust and appreciate His faithfulness.
Let’s look to Him to hang onto us and carry us…lets trust and enjoy the fact that He is Daddy who holds us and will even lift us up if the ice does break!
