Carried in the Arms of God

Praise the LORD; praise God our savior!  For each day he carries us in his arms.  (Psalm 68:19)

   On a hot July day in 1967, Joni Eareckson Tada's life changed forever.  Diving into a shallow lake, she broke her neck and fractured her spinal cord.  From a vibrant athletic teenager she became a quadriplegic.  Dreams of athletic events before large cheering crowds vanished.

   Through a friend's witness, she discovered a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a faith that enabled her to rely on God's everlasting arms.  Joni experiences everyday what it is like to be carried in the arms of God.  Every day Joni relies on other people to care for needs she cannot meet for herself.  Her constant faith has enabled her to witness to thousands of people around the world who otherwise might not have heard the "good news."

   What has happened to day that has left you feeling weak?  You don't have to be confined to a wheel chair to testify to the reality of God's care.  When life deals you a debilitating blow, rest assured that Jesus will be there to help you stand.  Just remember you are "Carried in the arms of God."
