“No Matter Where You Go, There You Are”

Many of you may have heard this phrase, perhaps from a friend, a professor, perhaps even a movie from the 80s. (I plead not to have any pretension of being an academic or a scholar of any means — in fact, I have been told, at times, my head is filled with a lot of useless trivia.)  However, each of us — individually or as a family — deal with the same query: Where we are going each day? Or, what are we doing with our day?

As a recent devotional pointed out, sometimes we do fall into the “same ole” routines, day-in /day-out. This pandemic has certainly given us the opportunity for self-reflection, and perhaps a re-dedication to what we could, or should, be doing. It’s more comfortable to take the easy way out, so it’s often our first instinct to run when something doesn’t feel good or natural to us.

A trusted sister-in-Christ told me, long ago, to remember Philippians 4:13:

“I can do all things thru Christ  who strengthens me.”

Remember HE is there for us.

Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you for the opportunity to “live” each and every moment of the 24-hour-day. We ask for your guidance through these difficult days of challenges – discerning Thy will, and not ours. Indeed, Lord, we thank you, for no matter where we go — you certainly are there.
