Something I did with my children, when they were little, was I would toss them up in the air and catch them. Their faces would show a mix of concern overshowed by absolute joy. The reason they could experience joy was due to the fact that while they were in the air they knew I would catch them. Having a relationship with God, made possible by Jesus Christ, has a connection with what I just shared. We are told by Jesus that in this world we will have trouble but be of good cheer because I have overcome the world. There are times in life when it seems like we are up in the air and it can be scary but when we are there a person has to decide whether to focus on their hardship or their heavenly father. In the book of Deuteronomy 33:27 we read, “The eternal God is your refuge, And underneath are the everlasting arms”.
