This morning, as I sit here alone with an apartment full of beautiful sleeping people, my mind is full of anxious thoughts. Things like, where will we end up living? Will I even like it here? How will my kids cope? How can I make these 2 years a joyful time? As I was thinking, it was as if the Holy Spirit gave me a good nudge to do something about these thoughts.
So I turned to Psalm 139: “If I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right had will hold me fast.” Now how’s that for comfort! The God who created me and knows me inside out, the One who hems me in – behind and before, He is the one who will guide us and hold us fast. He is in control – “All of the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”
We are in good hands.
