Unwritten

When everything you have known in life, when your safety net is gone...

Imagine loosing your job…and knowing your going to move, your packing up boxes, but you don’t know where to tell the moving to go. 

That’s going on for Peyton Manning…he was the quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts.  Now we know that money is obviously not a problem for his family, but what made his situation sound more real to me, was when I heard him say this at a press conference yesterday…

"I've been a colt for almost all of my adult life, but I guess in sports and in life, we all know that nothing lasts forever."

I understand that feeling…maybe you do to. 

I’m not feeling sorry for him…I think it’s actually kind of cool how all of a sudden your story can be unwritten again...a fresh new start.  

He doesn't know which team will pick him up...they don't know where to shop for a new house, but they're packing up preparing for the next step, the unknown.

Sounds kind of like living….this life of faith…

Lock Down

You might to do this too.  You have a little routine before you go to bed at night.  I set my coffee maker for the morning, then go to every door to make sure it’s locked.  

It's probably because I live alone with my 3 kids.  Just the double check makes me feel safer.  

This morning, I read this in my daily devotional, Daily Word, and it hit home, hope you don't mind, I'd love to share it with you.  

"Security is more than knowing your doors are locked against intrusion. Security is the faith that God is greater than any threat."

Today's Encouraging Word proves that is true.  "The Lord is your light and salvation; do not be afraid, He is a fortess protecting your from danger."  Psalm 27:1

The devotional went onto say, "When you face what appear to be giants in your life, you can do so with faith and certainty. You are protected, safe and secure, every step of the way." 

I will still lock my doors at night, but I will do so remembering that God's greater than any threat that might try to break into our lives
