"The LORD will keep you from all harm -- He will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore." Psalm 121:7-8
I don't know about you, but i am not very happy when someone gives me their backside. Usually, it is a sign of defiance. Yet, last week it was a sign of being ready too.
As i watched Anna leave 7 days ago for Germany, my last image of her was her backside and pink neck pillow, not her face. It was definitely a sign of readiness from her to leave... the child whom i had picked up numerous times at midnight from her best friend's house due to homesickness. She left resolutely with joy and confidence in her move across the deep, wide ocean, not looking back.
Did my tears increase the level of the salty ocean? For sure, but as a sweet mixture of joy and sadness. The one thing i am most confident in is knowing that while i was looking as her backside, God was already ahead of her, in the front. He has her back, side, front and every inch between, every second. My trust in Him is critical; i am totally relying on His Word and promises. God is crazy in love with all His children and goes before them and with them every step. Thank You, Father!
Are you dealing with some tough issues now? When in doubt, we must seek Him out. Sometimes our peace comes only from Believing and Trusting God. Praying for you to have my favorite type of candy bar day.... a Pay Day. May you find satisfaction and peace in the mixture of a salty-sweet day, too. Taste and see that the LORD is good!
friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
