When Jeff and I took Adele with us to Florida in March, I blogged about how trusting she was, about how she seemed fine traveling by plane, car, and shuttle as long as she had her mommy and daddy with her. I knew there was a faith lesson in there somewhere, but I never did totally work it out.
Last week we moved. And once again, a big part of Adele’s world was turned on its ear. All the familiarity of her surroundings was gone. And, once again, she was fine…as long as she had her mommy and daddy.
I’m still trying to work out this faith lesson. But today I heard myself say something aloud that resonated with what I think God might be trying to teach me: What if I would cling to the Lord like Adele clings to me? What if I would trust him enough to invite him to turn my whole world upside down as long as he remained ever-present, as he promises?
