“Children, you are safe and secure in God’s loving presence.”
I may feel anxious about my children when they are away from me, because I cannot see them or touch them to reassure myself that they are okay. But I can be assured that even when I cannot see them or be with them, God is.
We are all God’s children, and from the tiniest infant to the most mature adult, we are enfolded in God’s loving presence. Wherever we go and whatever we do, God’s loving presence is with us.
So I teach my children to have good judgment, but I also show them by example what it is to lead a prayerful, faith-filled life. I know this is true for me and my loved ones : God goes with us wherever we go, and in God’s presence, we are secure.
“You will have confidence, because there is hope;
you will be protected and take your rest in safety.”
- Job 11:18
