The microwave clock blinks blue-4:41. It’s too early. I’m fighting the sleep and exhaustion from 2 unexpected visits to babies’ rooms. But I must write this to you. Now. For some reason.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9)
Ya’ll, He’s so close. Always there. Wherever we go. Even when we don’t want to.
Yesterday I held her as we rocked. And I whispered outloud, “Let’s stay here, Esther. Let’s let the world move on by us.” Holding her is grace. It reminds me of His constant presence.
I don’t have many answers. Usually, I’m the first to say, “This just sucks.” But I know one thing, God keeps His promises.
He never leaves us.
He’s only loving us.
There is a world of perfection waiting for us.
Serving Him only makes sense.
How could I doubt the love of a Father Who gave His Son for us?
How could I doubt Cross love?
“Be strong and brave.” Today. Just this moment. He is close.
