Maybe safe is about the company you keep and not about the road you take?
– Eve, William Paul Young
When the road is filled with potholes, traffic jams and roadblocks, it is easy to feel unsafe.
When the winds are howling, the rains torrential & the waters rising with every passing second, you can feel battered and shaken.
When you sense loneliness or unease in a crowd.
I have come to learn that it is the company you choose to keep you which matters, not always the company you keep.
I am now able to walk into all the places I work, worship or travel to without anxiety or fear for my safety.
Because I know the One holding me.
As much as I love the security of my hubby, my children, family & friends, they can’t go with me everywhere I go.
But He does.
The love of the Father,
the embrace of the Son,
the surrounding of the Spirit.
The Company who keeps me.
No matter which road I take.
I have some decisions to make as God awakens dreams & opportunities are making themselves known.
I am not sure the road I will be taking, beyond today. I cannot guarantee it will be a safe one…
I may make a mistake, step down too heavily or miss the turn off altogether.
I do know I am in the best Company each and every moment along the way.
So I am no longer fearful of losing a job or making mistakes, for I know my true place of belonging: safe in His embrace, come what may.
