I have four young sons – four rumble, tumble, fearless sons. I have often said that I wish I could wrap them in bubble wrap to keep them safe. However, as I read scripture, I realized that God already has them bubble wrapped! He is before them, with them, in them and behind them.
We do not have to live in fear. God has wrapped us up in his LOVE, GOODNESS, and protection.
Scripture tells us that God goes BEFORE us:
“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8 NIV
He is WITH Us:
“Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.” Psalm 73:23 NIV
He is IN US:
“Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you?” 2 Corinthians 13:5 NIV
His Goodness FOLLOWS behind us.
“Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life…” Psalm 23:6 NIV
He watches over us:
“The Lord will keep you from all harm— He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” Psalm 121:7-8 NIV
Allow your burdened mama heart to find rest and freedom in God’s care for your children.

- Read God’s word every day to build your faith and hush your fear. Start with Psalm 103.
- Write a verse that is meaningful to you on an index card. Keep it by your kitchen sink to strengthen your faith.

God goes before you, He is with you, He is in you, and His Goodness follows you (and your children)! You can rest in his “bubble wrap!”
