How are we to walk safely along such a path?

(Frances Ridley Havergal, "Morning Bells" 1880)

"Hold me up, and I shall be safe." Psalm 119:117

The path is not easy.

There are many rough stones over which we may
stumble, if we are not walking very carefully.

There are places which look quite smooth, but
they are more dangerous than the rough ones,
for they are slippery.

There are little holes, hidden under the flowers,
which may catch our feet and give us a bad fall.

There are muddy ditches, into which we
may slip and get sadly wet and dirty.

How are we to walk safely along such a path?

We need a strong, kind hand to hold us up,
and to hold us always; a hand that will hold
ours tightly and lovingly.

Yes! Christ's loving hand is able to keep us from falling.

"Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed,
 for I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you.
 I will uphold you with My victorious right hand."
    Isaiah 41:10
