Several times this week I've been walking with my 3-year-old son when this verse has come to my mind... the situations have been potentially dangerous (for a 3-year-old) - a parking lot, crossing the street, getting in/out of an elevator. When I instructed him to stay RIGHT by me or to hold my hand TIGHTLY, I didn't say this passively. I meant it with my whole heart, as a protective and loving parent who wanted to lead him to SAFETY.
Ye are little children... nevertheless, be of good cheer, for I will lead you along. -D&C 78:17-18
Heavenly Father loves YOU. You are His little child! Let Him lead you along. Trust Him.
