When my daughter was little she used to come into my bedroom and stare me awake. Have you ever been stared awake by a child? It can be a frightening thing - and it is for Tami - but I wasn't bothered too much by it. That's probably why Ellie chose to always come to my side of the bed.
I came to realize that one of her main needs was not some kind of devious attempt at robbing me of sleep, but to assure herself that her parents were there. There's a wonderful encouragement knowing that we're not alone, and I can relate to that even as a 50-year-old.
During a quick search online I discovered that there are at least 56 verses in the Bible about God being with us. If God repeats this message so many times it must be that he realizes how much we need to hear this truth. Join us this Sunday, August 18th, and find out how we can be with God, too!
