I wonder what that first day was like for Adam and Eve after having to leave the Garden of Eden? Can you imagine opening your eyes and realizing it wasn’t a nightmare but all that had happened was reality? Some of you know what that feels like.
Or Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives…what was it like the day they stepped out of the ark and realized they had to start all over.
What about the morning after the crucifixion, the disciples somehow had to open their eyes and begin again.
You may be there today.
Anytime we face an untraveled path, a tragedy, a devastation, God is with us. Even when we have to start over after horrific circumstances, He is ready to show us how to pick up the pieces, one step at a time.
Today keep these words from Hebrews in mind:
Hebrews 13:6, “So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?'”
