This was to be her first time away from her Dad. She was travelling to Ukraine to study Medicine. The night before, her Dad helped her pack her stuff, telling her what to take, what to leave behind. A few times she would frown and disagree, because she thought her Dad was being unreasonable. She received a parcel from a friend of hers who had told her to deliver it to an Aunt. Dad sternly told her not to, and explained that she would have to leave it behind because its contents were unknown, which could be risky for her at the airport. She felt she was only helping out a friend, but she obeyed Daddy and put the parcel away.
The day had finally arrived, she woke up feeling very excited. She had packed all she had to, and now waiting to get on the plane was all that was left to do, her flight was at night. Her Dad took her to the airport, helped her check in, and with all other things she had to do there. Then she had to go through immigration service, there her Dad wasn’t allowed to pass through so he kissed her goodbye, and told her to say a prayer when she got on the plane. He stood behind a huge window and watched her. He kept watching, until he was sure everything was all right and left only when she was no longer in sight.
God does the same thing, just like the girl’s father watched over her and made sure she was all right. When we’re asleep in our comfy beds, it’s the dear Lord who keeps watch over us.In anything we do, He is there, making sure we are safe. He loves us so much and never wants to see us fail. If we took time to listen to His voice each day, we would find joy in everything we did. He cares so much for us, let us listen to Him and obey His commandments.
Jeremiah 29:11 —->For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
