A baby was crying in its crib. It cried but no one answered.
Finally, the baby’s mother came rushing in through the door.
“Are you okay? I’m so sorry I didn’t hear you at first, but I’m here now,” she said as she picked up the child.
The baby’s tears slowed to a whimper. He looked up to his mother. A smile came over his face. The tears were still there but he was filled with joy at the sight of her face.
The child never feared taking a nap. He always knew his parents would be there to scoop him up when he awoke.
“I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed. This poor soul cried, and was heard by the Lord, and was saved from every trouble.”Psalm 34:4-6
