You can choose to believe in a G‑d aloof from all things, a distant G‑d that leaves you in the hands of so many worldly troubles.

Or you can put your trust in a G‑d that carries you as a nursing mother carries her suckling infant by her bosom; as a father carries his child high upon his shoulders; as an eagle carries its fledgling young upon its wings.

Make room for Him and He will enter. As large as you allow your trust to be, so will be the space that He will fill.

Yeah, but.
I have been experimenting with this for a long time. For me, unless I incorporate, simultaneously, that G-d is with me through challenges, and somehow, although may not know exactly how, this hard thing is good for me, the image of the loving parent is damaged, and I end up angry.

It is so soothing
When around you things get frightening, you feel really helpless,
how wonderful is the thought, that you are carried by G-d.
I like the picture of the nursing mother cuddling her suckling infant, but I am even more delighted by being a little eagle, carried on the wings of his father. Maybe that is a matter of how you feel. Totally helpless, then you are the baby, or with a little strength on your own, then you prefer the eagle-father.
Anyway it is so good, to be carried by G-d.
