I can't count the number of times that I've heard those words from someone I've looked up to ... or reached out to ... or the number of times I've longed to hear them from someone who isn't here anymore.
Last night I was talking with a neighbor about the whirlwind I feel my life has become in the last several years, especially how I have been feeling lately, and I told her that I wished I could just talk to my dad ... or my uncle ... for some guidance.
My father passed in 2006, and his identical twin brother ~ my uncle ~ in 2011. Both of them would have those words of wisdom that always made me know that no matter what happens, I'm going to be okay because ... they were there to set me straight. To be that sounding board I needed. The voice of reason.
But the truth of it all is this ... even without them here to talk to anymore ... it is that no matter what happens, I'm going to be okay because my Father will always be there. He will never leave or forsake me. Even when I'm lost and alone ... He is near and all I have to do is reach up ... look up ... and rest in His calm.
At times lately it has felt like no matter what happened, I was not going to be okay ... but when I stop to rest in His word, to calm my mind and step back into His presence ... I realize that no matter what happens, I am going to be okay.
