“The LORD will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever.” (Ps 121:7-8)
My wife has been making a lot of plane flights lately, which is abnormal. What’s more abnormal is she has been making them without me. Furthermore, my children are getting older and I am seeing them grow into their independence. As they mature they receive further responsibility and each day I see their autonomy growing.
All of this adds up to a household where many of us walk out the door, go our separate ways for large stretches of the day, and only reconvene at night to sit around the dinner table together. Thank you, Jehovah for watching our comings and goings!
We can’t protect our loved ones all the time, but we can teach them to follow God and we can place our faith in Him ourselves. Pray for their safety and pray that God will protect them from the evil one as they navigate a world that is often full of dark temptations and trials.
You can’t always be there to keep them, but He always is.
“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.” (3 Jhn 1:2)
