The Tie That Binds

One thing I can always count on, in my relationship with The One Who Sees Me, is tethering.  He will not leave me stranded out there in the world.  He does not let me get too far adrift.

And friends?  I can drift pretty far.

Can’t we all?

Finding myself gasping for breaths of air in between huge swells that come crashing down, one after the other, I so often question how I got so far out into The Storm.

But, He is there.  And I know He is present because he tugs at the love knot that He has tied around my heart. Gently, He reminds me that we are tethered together, He and me.  I feel that little tug and know with certainty that I will be okay.

Even if I’m out on an adventure that He never willed for me, the tie that binds us is still there.  He waits patiently, oh-so-patiently, for me to feel that gentle tug and make my way back to Him.

And I am thankful this morning for that love knot.

Yes indeedy.

  1. Dear Missy
    This is one of the most wonderful blessings in my relationship with Jesus; that gentle tugging when the storms of life totally overwhelms me. Sometimes when I feel the winds raging around my ears, my heart looks up to see Jesus already holding out His hand!

  2. Tethered. Such reassurance… Oh friend, this post gave me such peace. The imagery from such beautifully written words stemming from your genuine heart just makes me smile. I keep going back to that word, tethered. You should write a book. Just sayin’. 🙂

  3. Oh, my,, Missy, I absolutely love that imagery of “the love knot” and how it tethers us to Him…I know I can so easily be distracted…many blessings to you this year as you continue to be tethered to our loving God 🙂

  4. Settled in with my Stevia’d coffee and this is the first thing I read. A welcome exhale as I remember He is in control…watching, loving. Love this.

  5. This is so true! Love it and so thankful for His patience. Stopping by from Five Minute Friday.
