Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

Always There

Deuteronomy 31: 8- “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

 

I tip-toed into my father’s room last week and studied his face while he lay sleeping next to Mom.

I recalled some especially good times from the past and soon found tears trickling down my cheeks.

“Don’t leave me, Daddy,” I whispered just like I often did when I was a little girl.

I realize it will happen some day. After all, Dad is 93. But I’m just not ready to say good-bye to this gentle man quite yet.

I know I will see my earthly father again in heaven, but until then there will be a period of time we will be separated.

On the other hand, God tells us that He is eternal and will live forever. I am grateful that he created us and will watch over us both now and for all eternity.
