As I was with Moses, so I will be with you;
I will never leave you nor forsake you.
It's four days until Christmas. Boxes stacked against every wall but they don't hold presents. We've done the unthinkable - we followed God from our home in Dallas to "a strange new land" called Memphis.
I'm too old to wonder if Santa can find our new house but deep within I wonder whether Jesus can. I identify with Memphis' roots - ancient Egypt. Over 3,000 years ago, God's people were in captivity there. Would I be in captivity here?
Just as God anointed Moses to lead His people from Egypt, God had anointed my husband into ministry and into Memphis. Just as God was with Moses, He would be with me here. He is always there.
I fellowshipped with Him while I waited for friends.
I celebrated with Him when I found some.
I spend every Wednesday morning with a group of ordinary women. We're all moms. We're all seeking God's heart. We come together to remind ourselves we are never alone.
Recently 50 regular moms who share the same struggles, hurts and questions common to every mom's heart, got together with the help of MOPS International to bring you the devotional Always There: Reflections for Moms on God's Presence.
Join me and other moms you know like Renee Swope, Ann Voskamp, Kathi Lipp and Kelly Combs as we learn God is there in every busy, exhausting, and exhilarating moment of being a mom.
No matter where you are in your mothering journey, Always There offers you hope and encouragement along the way. From the humorous to the solemn, these fifty-two short devotions will capture your heart as you reflect upon your important role as a mother and upon your ever-present and steadfast source of strength.
