You turned 10 months on the very day we moved to Florida. You tried so hard to stay awake, but you passed out in my arms on the airplane. As Dad drove us home from the airport in the darkness, I watched out the window and realized we were finally in a place that is completely foreign to me. The unfamiliarity descended on me and I felt trepidation creep into my heart.
The Bible is “living and active” and therefore, it is no surprise that God brought a special verse to my mind at that moment. After all those years in the wilderness, before the Israelites set out to claim their Promised Land, Moses reminded them that. “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged”. I love that thought, Savannah. The Lord walks our entire lives BEFORE us. He fights our battles before we even get to the front lines.
I will remind you of this truth when you face life’s biggest moments, whether it’s your first day of kindergarten or before you walk down the aisle. God will go before you and see you through each moment in life. Whatever obstacles you will face pale in comparison to the power of the God you serve.
Here’s to a wonderful new adventure my baby girl. Lonely? At first. Unfamiliar? In the beginning. But, great blessing is right around the corner…
