"Don't let me sink!"

I just finished week two of swim lessons.   

 I was thinking today about what it must feel like to be in the middle of that pool 
where I can stand up, but they can't...

...and they have to completely trust me to 
hold on to them, rescue them, not let them sink. 
Sometimes I let go so that they can "try it on their own,"

but I'm always there when their little bodies start to wriggle panicky in the deep.  
I was driving alone in the car today when all of these thoughts 
started running around in my head.  
I was talking to God about how I felt like those kids... panicking in the deep.  

 I told Him how I needed Him to hold on to me, rescue me, and not let me sink.

"...even there Your Hand will guide me,  your right hand will hold me fast."  
Psalm 139:10

Grateful for His promises that I can hold on to "in the deep."
