Holding tightly to the hand of his little girl, Paul Radar was crossing one of Chicago's busiest streets. Turning to her he asked, "Aren't you afraid?" "No," said the four-year-old. "I'm never afraid when you are with me and holding my hand."
As he listened to her words, his mind was flooded with the thought that he would do well to have the same childlike faith in his heavenly Father; it inspired him as he thought about it and compelled him to write the famous hymn, "Only Believe."
It is always comforting to know that our Lord is always with us, holding our hand and putting His arm around our shoulder. In our weariest times, He will be our strength. In our darkest nights, He will be our light. In our weakest hour, He will become our source of power. As we put our faith in God, we can know without a doubt that all things are possible to those who believe.
