Nearly two years ago my husband and I packed up all our belongings and moved from northwestern Pennsylvania to North Carolina. Our little dog Tootsie was getting a little confused. She watched us pack up one thing after another and carry it out of the house, her house, the only house she had ever really known. I picked her up and comforted her by saying, “Oh, my little girl, I know you don’t understand what’s going on, and I can’t explain it to you, but all you need to know is that I love you and you will always be with me.” When I said that I “heard” that sweet familiar still small voice of my heavenly Father whisper in my heart, “and that goes for you, too…and for My people who are struggling and confused.”
I knew that day my little doggie girl needed my reassurance to help her keep trusting me and not get anxious. If I feel that way about my dog, don’t you know your heavenly Father feels so much love and compassion for you, His beloved son or daughter! So when you don’t understand just stay close to Him, like Tootsie did with me, and let Him carry you through. Let His love comfort you today!
