But there is a way, there is a spark, there is a hope that you can hold on to.
There is a lifeline come to the rescue, just like a hand that's waiting for you.
But when Peter saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out,
“Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.
• Matthew 14:30-31
Once upon a time a man was caught in a bed of quicksand. Confucius saw him and remarked. “There is evidence men should stay out of such places”. Buddha came along and said: Let this be a lesson to the rest of the world. Mohammed looked at the sinking man and said: Alas, it is the will of Allah. The Hindu turned to the man and said: Cheer up friend, you will return to earth in another form. But when Jesus came along he said: Give me your hand – I will pull you out.
• (excerpt from Touch of the Master’s Hand by Charles Allen)
Pray with thanksgiving for the times when God rescued you
and with hope for the ways you feel like you are sinking right now.
