You are Safe


If you’re looking for some more security today…

It’s not like the mall kind of security, but the kind of person in your life that makes you feels safe. You already have it.

I read this today, and thought it might encourage you too.  It’s from the Daily Word.

“You are protected at all times, safe and secure in the all-encompassing presence of God. Circumstances don’t have to cause you to be afraid.  God within you is a fortress of power and protection.”

If you can picture yourself running into this big tall stone tower, you’re escaping the oncoming attackers (stress, worry, failure).  You make it inside just in time, and a knight is there with you.  He shuts the giant door and locks the bolt, you breathe a sigh of relief, and you feel safe.

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.” –Proverbs 18:10

Well Done

You’ve been hearing a new song on K-LOVE from Moriah Peters called “Well Done”.

It reminds me of the verse in the bible, "The master said, 'Well done, my good and faithful servant.” –Matthew 25:23

I don’t know about you, but that always gives me chills when I hear the possibility that someday, God will say to you and I, “Well Done”. Even if no one else notices how hard your working, how diligent you are, God does.

For example, take the job of parenting.  It feels like such a giant responsibility, but  eventually you have to let go, and hope your children make good decisions. But, what happens when they choose a different path?

Maybe you can remember a time when you decided to believe differently than your parents, or maybe you have a child going doing that to you right now.

I admit that scares me.  I’m a rookie when it comes to that.  I have three children, under 6, so most of my time is trying to put in all the good stuff about God, so it’s there when they need it.

I saw this movie over the weekend, about this young woman who grew up a pastor’s kid.  She even sang some Christian music for a while, but then turned away and made her own path that made her famous, but did some stuff her parents weren’t exactly okay with, still is.

But, what got me about their reaction is, it reminded of the character of God.

They didn’t disown her, or really outwardly judge her.  They love her.

When she faced crisis, they were there to help.

Well done.
