Back in the day, way back in the Biblical day, there was Moses.
It was Moses’task to lead his people to the Promised Land as directed by God.
Ironically, this past week as Tom and I have been making our way back to our beloved North Dakota home, my daily devotionals have focused on Moses and his journey.
We haven’t faced the hardships that Mose faced, but when discouraged by what’s going on around us, it was good to know we are protected.
This has been a trip unlike our other journeys.
We’ve learned to wipe down with alcohol based wipes every surface we touch and then do the same to our hands once back in our car. We have stopped only for gas, eaten only at drive-thru places and once in our hotel room, we don’t leave.
Tomorrow, when we finally get to our home in North Dakota, we will be self quarantined for 14 days.
I’m sad that I won’t get to see my babies big or small. We can probably wave from our window, but there won’t be any hugs.
There have been some challenges on this journey. Yet, they have all worked out. Chloe kitty has amazed us both. Although she reluctantly gets inside her carrier, once there she rides quietly in the car until the next stop. Bless her little heart, it’s made it a lot easier.
The thing I’ve taken away from the devotional about Moses headed for the Promised Land is this: Don’t waiver in your faith that God’s in control.
He knows what is best for us, and He’ll take care of us.
Going to North Dakota to be quarantined may not sound like the Promised Land, but the knowledge that we will be there in our pretty little house, know that our family is close by, and that we are loved are good enough for me.
Blessings to you all.
Life is good today.
