Hey, hey everyone, it’s Rachel Inouye here! I hope to bring some encouragement to you today.
As I moved the furniture to get myself in the spot for filming a YouTube video, I found a few little pieces of the Christmas tree under my chair and couple of those tiny asian beetles that died, but that’s not the point. The point is, I’m here I am ready to share some encouragement with you.

Oh, boy! I’ve had a lot going on in my life but through it all I know one thing, God is my keeper! I know it, feel it, watch it manifest in my life and I wanted you to know know that too!
I just recently came back from Florida! It was fabulous and it was the first trip I’ve taken since the lock down. So it was about a year without flight travel. As got on a plane, it was a bit odd. Yet I’ve thought about all the ways God guided and watched over me, as my keeper. I want you to know that God keeps us. I noticed that he kept my coming and going as I traveled to and from Florida. He’s our keeper. It’s His promise.
As we enter back into a more regular season of life, as the lock down lessens or while we begin to go out more because our regular rhythms, although modified, resume, I wanted to share with you a little bit about directions and that God is our keeper.
Concerning the direction part, I don’t know if you ever feel like you don’t know which way to go. Well, Scripture tells us He will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.
Have you ever felt directionless or disoreinted? You don’t know where to go while driving in your car or you lose your sense of direction altogether. You’re not sure where to head next because you’ve become turned around and confused somehow.
My husband, Michael, has one particular place in our town where, no matter what, he gets mixed up. Whenever he drives in that area he gets kind of turned around. I think it’s because when we first moved here, 20 years ago, he got turned around in that exact location. Has that happened to you before? Do you feel like you’re getting turned around or you’re not sure and you’re confused and disoriented? Perhaps it’s because you’ve had a great deal of change going on in life and have lived in a global pandemic.
But be assured, God isn’t confused! He’s got the best GPS! He is always re-calculating you and He knows where he wants to go and He’ll get you there. He has a destination in mind for you.
So when it comes to directions, know that God promises to guide you…it’s one of His promises- I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go I will counsel and watch over you. One version says with my loving eye upon you!
So when it comes to directions or when you’re not sure where you should go, know that God is working for you and he WILL, not might, He WILL instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.
The verse that follows says, don’t be like a horse or a mule that needs to be guided by a bit or bridal…So don’t be stubborn when He’s leading you, submit to Him and go where He’s going! Remember that because he’s got the best GPS ever! God is instructing us. He is teaching us and he has his loving eye upon us.
I hope that helps you today. That you’d just be guided by Him. You don’t have to be stubborn, you can submit to His Lordship and you can submit to His directions. He’s got your destiny in mind. So as we begin to go out more know that He’s your keeper! 🥰
“The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.”
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.”
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
