You Are There


This past Sunday morning on my way to church, I saw a hot air balloon in the distance.

I quickly got my camera out and began to photograph this simple marvel of flight, floating along above the lake.

When I came home from church, I looked online at a social media site.

There, I read that the parents of one of my son’s good friends were celebrating their anniversary by taking a hot air balloon ride.

As it turns out, I actually knew who was in the basket under the balloon!

Although I am not sure where they traveled, I do know one thing—God was with them.

In fact, no matter where they could’ve gone, He would have been there.

We cannot ever leave His presence.

Psalm 139:7-10 reads,

 Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
