It will be Okay

Today is the first day of 2nd Grade for my girl.
She's so grown up.

As I'm sure many moms are feeling today...I have a mixture of anxiety, fear, loneliness, helplessness, and a little joy too :). It's one of those days that is a good reminder who is really in control here. 

And it's not me. 

And Rylie's not really mine. 

She's His.

As a mother, my very favorite verse is Isaiah 40:11 and today it brings me comfort.

He tends His flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in His arms
and carries them close to His heart;
He gently leads those that have young.
Isaiah 40:11
I know the prophet Isaiah is speaking about God's love for the people of Jerusalem here, especially those (lambs) who are weak in the faith or newborn souls. But I have those very same defenseless lambs who live under my roof and this verse paints a picture of unsurpassed beauty to this mother.  And I hope it does for you too.

These words bring me peace that passes all understanding.  And a promise.  It will be okay. 

She's in great arms.
