Day before yesterday, I got a frantic text from Brianna. She was in school but all it said was " There is a bomb, come get me!!" First thing I did was pick the phone up and call the school. Someone had called in a bomb threat at her school and the bomb squad, police and fire department were there checking the school out. I asked the lady was it "OK" or did I need to come get my child and she assured me things were fine. So I text Bri and told her. She did NOT want to hear that! Within 15 mins, she had text me 45 time begging me to come get her because the school was gonna blow up. So I grabbed my bag, KNOWING they were not even going to let me in the school and headed that way. I text her when I go there that I was in the office and the principal had said the school was fine, the kids were all in class and they were still checking but it was really OK. After standing there a minute because I waned to be sure myself, I left the office. I text Bri and said that it was be OK, to calm down. They were just doing a final check, there was no bomb, and that I would not let anything happen to her. She text back " OK".
Seems a little funny I know, but she was really scared and the only thing that seemed to calm her was knowing that I was there even though she couldn't get to me then and that I let her know that I would protect her no matter what. Is that not like how God is with us?? Through God we find comfort, rest, hope and freedom. In His hands are the only true way we can find peace and calm. Christ has walked in our shoes and through Him we have salvation and eternal life. All of this is through God's hands.... isn't it wonderful to be God's child? He lovingly wants to wrap His hands around us and tell us that it is going to be OK, all we have to do is make the effort and choice to follow Him.
We all make mistakes. Been there, done that and wrote a FEW books on it, but God loves us no matter what. Now that doesn't mean keep making the mistakes and telling yourself that God loves me even though I am doing this right now. He DOES love you but we have to make conscience efforts to do right and stay out of situations that are not good for us. But God does love us, His love unlike so many other things in our lives is unconditional love. All we need to do is be willing to accept it and then we get the feel God's arms wrapped around us.
I pray you all have a blessed day and weekend. Try to stay warm.Lord willing, we will talk again soon! Love you all!!
