The Big Field Trip

Today was a big day for my son and daughter. They had a scheduled field trip to a university. They have been looking forward to it for a couple of weeks. And, to add to the excitement, their big brother was going with them and driving them! My husband dropped them off with their brother this morning and they were off.  About an hour into the trip our youngest son began to throw up and feel nauseated. My husband drove to get him and bring him home. It was very disappointing. Our daughter went on to enjoy the day with her big brother.
This life can be disappointing at times. Sometimes it turns out differently than what I think. Learning to trust God through those situations is the challenge! I read in The Voice again this morning and these were  favorite verses of mine:

"No one is powerful enough to snatch the flock from my Father's hand. The Father and I are one."
John 10:29-30

"I am the resurrection and the source of all life; those who believe in me will live even in death. Everyone who lives and believes in Me will never truly die. Do you believe this?" John 11: 25-26

Whatever the circumstance, no matter how bad the day may be, I am always in His hands.  Even when the day comes and there is death, because I believe in Him and He lives in me, I will be alive! Knowing this changes days like the flu and disappointments beyond that. He ultimately has a much bigger plan, and life is the way it is for a reason. To grow in Him, be still in Him, and to have eternal life in Him, that is captured freedom!
Say That Again, Jesus, You are here to walk me and others through our disappointments and life crisis. You have promised that I will not be snatched out of the hands of the Father, and life for me is eternal!
