This is Christopher being brave in the pool. He’s just building up the nerve to move out beyond the kiddie pool. He’s brave because I have a firm grasp on his hand and he has mine. It reminds me of Joshua 1, where God tells Joshua,

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

That word, “courageous,” also means “to hold on.”

Joshua, do not let go. Hold on to me. Do not be afraid. Don’t even be dismayed. Don’t stress. I’m with you. I’ve got you.

His word to us is the same.
