Trust the Divine Big Picture

by

My son, at age 24, graduated from college and went traveling abroad for the first time. For the first 10 days, he was on a group tour in Israel (hint: tour=peace of mind for the parents). For the next three weeks, he was backpacking through the Balkan Peninsula (Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, etc) with a friend.

While he was away at college we’d talk a couple of times a week.

While he was traipsing through the Peninsula we didn’t hear from him for 10 days! No, not even a check-in on What’s App!

I mean, what the heck!

So, what is a mom to do when their adult child is backpacking through foreign countries and she doesn’t hear from him? 

Well, I found myself picturing the worst…he’d been kidnapped, sold into human trafficking, had fallen off a cliff, and the list of atrocities goes on.

Let’s just talk facts:


  1.  We (my husband and I) genuinely had no idea where our son was.

  2.  Everything is happening for me and is a Divine orchestration for my highest growth.
  3.  Constantly expressing worry to my husband is NOT helpful. 😊

If you are worried about the future, listen in (or watch) as we discuss:

  • How I was able to free myself of the mental movies my worry created and remember that no matter the outcome, everything is a perfect orchestration and trust the Divine Big Picture.

  • A text I received from my mom (during this event) about the “burden” of children and how I’m now able to hear her words without experiencing the painful feelings they used to create.
