While sitting there God told me this is what He wants us to do. He wants us to seek comfort, peace and security in Him. He is ALWAYS with us, right by our side. How often do we go for some chocolate, coffee or to a friend when we are having a tough day or going through something tough? How often do we turn to something or someone else before turning to God for our peace and comfort? There is nothing wrong with having a cup of coffee or talking with a friend but do we do that more than seek the comfort and strength God offers. As we are going through yet another transition God is telling me that he is always with us. We just need to seek Him for our comfort and peace.
If a parent can offer peace and comfort to their child just by being present, how much more peace and comfort can God offer us. One of our favorite songs while in Tanzania was 'Never Once' by Matt Redman. Every time we sang or heard the song we thought about all the times God helped us through tough times and was with us through the good times as well. We sang 'Never Once' at church the Sunday before school started. I was in tears as I was thinking about all the times God never left us and also thinking about how God will be going with our kids as they start school, helping them through yet another tough transition.
My prayer is that as you may be going through something tough that you seek comfort and peace in the arms of our Heavenly Father.
