Proverbs (10)

1478847600If a bad storm or an angry dog frightened me when I was young, I would run to my safe place. My safe place was behind a big, red velvet chair in our living room. I would lean against the back of the chair and rub my face on the cloth. Then I would close my eyes and forget about what had frightened me.
I am an adult now. Most of the time, I am happy. But sometimes I become afraid. When I feel afraid, I can’t hide behind a big, red velvet chair any more. Instead, I read my Bible and pray. I trust God’s words to help me feel safe and secure. Proverbs 30:5 tells us, “You can trust this: Every word that God speaks is true. God is a safe place for those who go to him.”
Maybe you are facing some frightening things in your life today. Maybe you want to feel safe and protected. Trust God to be with you, love you, and keep you safe!
