We said goodbye to our school kids today. My heart is aching for them already. I’ve grown to love them so much. It’s hard to understand sometimes why the Lord has us build such friendships and relationships when we just have to say goodbye later. I know I just need to entrust them to the Lord. He loves them so much more than I do. He knows everything about them and He’s going to keep them safe. It’s just hard to let go you know?
This is a reminder to me too. The Lord loves me and He’s going to protect me. i was listening to a message by Levi Lusko the other day and He talked about how he puts his daughter’s on his shoulders. His youngest was on his shoulders one day and was terrified. He was saying how he wanted to reassure her that she was safe up there and that he wouldn’t let her fall. This is true for me too. The Lord puts me on His shoulders. He holds me up and away from danger. Where I go He goes. What I see, He also sees. He’s my father. He loves His daughter. He won’t let me go. “Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand. you guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart ad my portion forever.” Psalm 73 23-26
