Pastor Thomas Collins was visiting a family in his church when the mother was very depressed and despondent and felt that God had forsaken them. Looking at the baby in the woman’s arms, Pastor Collins said to her, “Drop that baby on the floor.”
Startled by the suggestion, she looked at him in disbelief. “Well,” he said, reaching for his wallet, “for what price would you do it?” Indignantly she replied, “Not for as many dollars as there are stars!”
He then said kindly, “Tell me, do you really think that you love your child more than the Lord does His?” That truth broke through the woman’s despair.
We all face times of deep trial. That is the time to strengthen our faith in God’s love and His promise to carry us through. Jesus said clearly, “No one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand” (John 10:28). He was talking about you.
