who do you belong to?

this week I have been away visiting my mom.
in 18 days I will be back at work full time.
and miss Isla will be in day care full time.

God has been giving me such peace about this.
I haven't felt stressed, worried or even really dwelled on the upcoming changes.
now, to be clear, I know that there will probably be some days that are a little difficult, but I've been at peace.
Until this week.

just Isla and I.

it has been a good week, but being out of the routine I've been in for the past year has been a little bit overwhelming.

overwhelming because I keep thinking about how my routine will be completely changed in 18 days.

mind you, Isla has also had a tremendous cold.
so we've been up in the night a lot and definitely have a less than normal amount of sleep.

but because of all this, that feeling of peace has seemed a little distant.

then, this morning, the song 'God of the Redeemed' has been in my head.

We belong to You Father
Love has come, we're orphans no longer
Brought into Your light and freedom
By the blood and the mercy of Jesus

It's rising, it's rising, the song of hope
From us set free
It's rising, it's rising, it's rising up

Hallelujah to You God of the redeemed
Hallelujah, You've opened blinded eyes to see
We will praise You
You are the everlasting light
Hallelujah to You God of the redeemed

We belong to You Father
Living for Your glory and honor
Here on earth, just as in heaven
We usher in the reign of Your Kingdom

-God of the Redeemed-Jeremy Riddle, Paul McClure, and Hannah McClure of Bethel Church-

and it has brought back the feeling of peace.

I know who I belong to and I know that He is Peace.
There is a bigger picture at work here.
A bigger one than me at work,
and an even BIGGER one that has come, is coming and will come.
