He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand. - Psalm 121:4-5 (NRSV)
Our plane was gliding over patches of clouds. After a
little while, the crew announced that because of weather, the flight might be bumpy, but there was no reason to panic. However, I had never been so scared during a flight. I leaned back and closed my eyes.
Even when the path seems unclear, God faithfully leads us forward.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
