We saw Toy Story3 last week. My favourite part was near the end. The toys were thrown away and dumped in a heap of garbage being pushed towards the incinerator. The toys tried and tried to get free.....but couldn't.
The part I love - one toy stopped struggling.....He knew his end was near. He reached out a hand to another toy....who took it and he too stopped struggling. Then he turned and reached out his hand to another toy....and so on until all the toys were in a single line gripping each other's hands....prepared to face their doom together.
It was then they were saved. What struck me...was the way they reached out to each other......the way their eyes linked into their friend's....no words spoken...but they knew....each was saying...We're in this together.
Some of you guys are struggling with tough stuff. I want to reach a 'hand' out to you...to let you know you're not alone.....And many of you have reached out to me with incredible kindness......We're in this together!!!
To you guys fighting hard and needing a 'hand' of support.....and a touch from God.......We're in this together.
I will carry you...be your strength....and pull you through....Reach for me....and take my hand.....and we will pray and we will stand. We were never meant to walk this road alone....
