E is for Envelop, Embrace, Enfold


Envelop, embrace, enfold.

How do those words make you feel? For me, they are warm, cosy, safe, reassuring. They are all the things we do to a child to let them know that they are loved; to offer comfort when they are distressed; to protect them when there is danger.

This is what the Lord does for me. He embraces me with His love, envelops me in His protection, and enfolds me with His comforting and reassuring arms. All of those things encourage me to step out and take risks, to reach out to others, and to stand up to fear.

Are you letting Him do that for you?
