I'm sure we have all felt that time goes by so fast. But I've had a heightened awareness of this during the past 2 weeks. Not only is time zooming by but I feel like I'm digging my heels in the sand trying to slow down a powerful flood of change that is rushing into my life. As I tried to use this illustration to explain how I had been feeling to Dan, he ever so calmly replied "that's why I go with the flow". That's sounds really sweet, BUT I can't paddle fast enough to keep up with this flow! That's when my dear husband reminded me of a much needed truth. He said, "that's why I let Jesus paddle for me". Quickly, the scripture came to mind "For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength". (Philippians 4:13)
God is definitely at work in our life and on this journey to Japan. He's getting us there, and all I have to do is hold on tight.
