Whatever anxieties, fears, unknowns you may be staring down today, I pray these words might reach you and remind you that God is a good father who says many patient times, “Do not fear.”
You stand in the midst of the unknown, already there with arms outstretched to catch me, like a daddy proudly watching his daughter take her first steps: “Come on. I’ve got you. Just a little further. You’re doing it. I’m right here. I’ll catch you.”
You don’t ask me to go it alone. You’re already there saying, “This is going to be so good, I can’t wait for you to see it. I’m getting it all ready for you. Trust me. I still have things to work out for your good, and I want you to wait here. Don’t run ahead, it won’t be ready yet. Just wait here. I’m waiting right beside you, and I’ll take you when it’s right. I can hardly wait for you to see all I’ve prepared for each of you here. It’s so good because I love you this much.
