Never Without Help

Read Genesis 28:10-17 - Jacob's dream


Selina Machado, from Blantyre, Malawi, remembers the day she received the email telling her that she had been accepted to a master's degree program in a different country. She was sitting in the airport when her new reality sank in. She was leaving her continent, her family, and her friends and she would be on her own for two years. In her first class, Selina remembers feeling like she had no idea what was going on. She wondered, Will I even make it? Will I have anyone to help me?

During that season, Selina would sit in her room and speak the words from Hebrews 13:5 to herself to help her be conscious of God's presence in her life. The more she did this, the more it helped her through each day - even when she felt stuck, nervous, confused, alone, and homesick. By God's grace, Selina was surrounded by people who helped her with her coursework. She met people who helped her feel at home in a strange country. She was not alone.

We can trust in God's word. No matter our situation or where we are, we can always rely on God to be right here with us, helping us through.


Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for always being with us. Help us each day to be attentive to your presence, in Jesus' name. Amen.
