It is that time of year again when we get our kids ready to head back to school. New clothes, fresh haircuts, and school supplies are at the top of the list of preparations. However, in this season of uncertainties we find ourselves in, our minds can be overwhelmed by safety concerns and fear around COVID-19 transmission.

To say these past few months have been a little stressful is an understatement, but we serve a great and powerful God. A God that tells us He will never leave us. Deuteronomy 31:6 (ESV): “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” This is such a great promise, but it can be hard to feel His presence during times of great trial. If God is with us, why are these troubling things happening?
We are not promised a problem-free life. In fact, Jesus said we would have trouble. John 16:33 (NKJV): “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
We often do not receive what we do not understand, especially when we are struggling. It is hard for us to understand the ways of God, and He addresses this in the book of Proverbs: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV)
God is asking us to trust Him, not our own knowledge or wisdom. As His children, we simply need to acknowledge Him, seek His presence, and HE will guide us and make a way for us. Trust God with all of your heart, my friends, and He will be faithful to you according to His word.
