Just As CloseSunday, May 27, 2012
When our son was overseas it was a very unsure time in my life. Fear was very real and threatened to overtake me at times. However, I was comforted with the knowledge that he was just as close to God in Iraq as he was here on the streets of America. There was many a sleepless night that I would stare up at the sky and know that our son was seeing the same sky...and the same God who was watching over me was watching over him in that far away land. I prayed each day and thanked the Lord for the gift our son is. And as I looked to the Lord, He reminded me that no matter where we go in life, we are not alone. As we travel along the path God has set before us, our Heavenly Father is right beside us. There will be times when the road is difficult and other times when it is smooth. But, He tells us to take comfort knowing that He is there. God will be with us to be our Companion, our Leader, and our Guide on our journey through this life, so we need not fear!
Today, as in all days, I am thanking my Heavenly Father for watching over us and always being by our side. Whether we are in a distant land separated from friends and family or close by simply travelling along the path in life, let us remember, and be thankful, that we have a constant Companion in our Father.
