I’m sitting on my suitcase, lovingly packed, ready for the trip, eager to go. I can just see the open road in my mind and hear it beckoning me. I’m waiting for Papa first, though. I can’t go without Him, especially since He’s the driver, navigator, and planner. Besides, I’d much rather travel with Him than alone. No question about that.
I know it’s going to be a great trip, but also that there will be bumps along the way. To expect a trip without any slip-ups, accidents or near-mishaps, or discouraging moments would be naive and unrealistic. I know that if I go with Papa, though, I’ll be fine one way or another. He can handle anything and promised He would stay with me the whole way. I believe Him.
“I’m waiting, Papa! Are you ready? Is it time?” I stand up bouncing on my heels looking out the open door when I hear his footsteps behind me. “Okay, let’s go!” His happy voice rings out. He reaches for my hand and squeezes it tight. I grab my bag with my other hand and look up at Him with a big smile as we head outside.
The LORD said, ” I will go with you and give you peace.”
Then Moses replied, ” If you aren’t going with us, please don’t make us leave this place. Exodus 33:14-15 CEV
Wait patiently for the Lord. Psalm 27:14 NLT
