In this picture she is at Siesta Beach. The huge expanse of sand and water surrounding her. The Gulf of Mexico behind her as far as one can see.
Mya is not afraid. Her eyes are on her mother and father. Her parents are with her. She is safe. She is bold. She is striding with confidence, joy, purpose. She is exalted.
In this same way our Father God 's eyes watch over us. If only we will look to him in every circumstance we can feel this safe, this bold, this exalted.
King David asked in Psalm 139: 7-10
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."
The Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore."
