While a man and his family were in Europe,
there was a time when they needed to drive three days continuously, day
and night, to get to Germany. So, they all got into the car - he, his
wife, and his 3-year-old daughter.
The little girl had never
traveled at night before and, with deep darkness all around, she was
frightened the first night in the car.
"Where are we going, Daddy?"
"To your uncle's house, in Germany."
"Have you been to his house before?"

the strength and help for the many years to follow whenever there are
questions and fears on this journey with the Lord. Yes, our Father is
We may know the destination (and sometimes we may
just know it like the little girl - "Germany" - without understanding
where or what it really is). We do not know the way, we do not know how
to read the map, we do not know if we can find restaurants along the
But the little girl knew the most important thing - Daddy
is driving - and so she is safe and secure. She knows that her Daddy
will provide all that she needs.

may have asked many questions before, but can you, like the little
girl, start to realize the most important focus should be "Daddy is
