Are we there yet?
Safe travel, no matter what the weather
You've packed the car and locked up the house; the kids are buckled into their seats. Easing on down the road, you're on a major highway in minutes, happily on your way with half-a-day's drive ahead, when a small voice from the back seat pipes up, "Are we there yet?"
An important question to ask—not only on vacations but also on your spiritual journey. But first, it helps to answer the question, Where is "there?" Moreover, who is there, and why do we want to be there? Wouldn't a good destination point—whether a person is on vacation or not—be God's presence, the "secret place" of which the Psalmist speaks in the first verse of Psalm 91?
The good news is that actually you're already "there"—already with God, not separate from His "secret place." Since we are God's children, created in His likeness (see Gen. 1:26, 27), God is our source, our haven, our home, where we are always welcome, safe, and cared for.
