Clothes Pin

Fear not, I will help you.

Isaiah 41:13

I used to wash my own clothes. Lately, because my health wouldn’t permit it, I send my laundry to the cleaners. But back then, when I would wash, I consider it a personal sacrifice doing this chore. Filling up water on a pail. Washing, rinsing, washing and rinsing again. Hanging clothes on a line and keeping it intact by a clothes pin. Strong winds or a storm, could not remove those clothes from the clothesline. Because a clothes pin lets it stay put. Unless, the clothesline snaps.

I’ve had many storms in my life. Winds have blown so strong, that I feel like I would snap. It’s difficult hanging on. I’d rather give up. But the clothespin of faith have yielded my heart unto Him. Other people beat me up. They tell me lies of who and what I am. And I hurt.

But then, I pause and look up. I see the truth. He loves me. He died for me. I owe my life to Him. If He could do this for me, what else will He not do for my good. My future is in His hands.

His love for me. My faith and trust in Him. The truth of who I am – His Beloved Daughter. The clothes pin that keeps me intact.
