From Jan Karon’s latest novel, “To Be Where You Are.”
Her mom said they were to pray for the people her dad and his colleagues were treating (In Cameroon), pray for his sound health and safekeeping, and trust God in everything. She knew such wisdom in her head, but complete trust was, as her mother said, “yet to build a station in her heart and erect its flag of undisputed possession.”
To be where you are. Good theme for Advent/Christmas when God becomes Immanuel, God with us, in Jesus Christ.
