Summer smile

Psalm 121

I sat outside last night and read this to/with Waverly, and saw it in a whole new light. To read about how God watches over your life and protects you to a child with a terminal condition... No, it doesn't make any sense. Yet I know it's true, because it's in His Word. I will never fully grasp the ways of God, because (this is me being honest right here), it simply makes no sense that a child like Waverly should suffer as she does. But I know I can trust Him, that He lovingly cares for her and holds her in His Hands. And that last verse? He watches over both her coming and her going. Y'all, it's hard not to live in fear of the future when you know that time with your child is limited. I've never read this verse in this way before, but it struck me. That He was there watching over her when she came, and will watch over her when it's time for her to go. I often live in fear of that time, but after reading this and seeing it in a new light, I know that I can trust Him when that time comes too.
