You're Surrounded

Do you ever feel a bit claustrophobic?

I think all mamas do.

Right now, with all that is going on in the world, its pretty easy to feel that way. For one, you are literally wearing a mask when you go out in public (some people for the entire day!). For another, there are so many problems in the world, its easy to focus on them and feel that pressing down on your heart. Riots, racism, sickness...ugh.

I was feeling really depressed over it all. Then, last week, I read 2 Kings 6:8-23. Elisha's servant is upset because of the large enemy army that is surrounding them. Elisha calmly tells his servant that there were more on their side than there were on the enemy's. I'm guessing the servant must have looked at Elisha like he was crazy, because the man of God then prays for his servant to see the mighty spiritual army of God that was surrounding them. And he does see it, and it is massive.

It was really encouraging for me. It's easy for us to see the problems in the physical world around us, but we aren't seeing the spiritual protection that is around us. We are children of God, and He is looking out for us.

Don't worry, mamas. He's got our back.

Lots of love,
