Re-Post: The Only Real Safety

Choose Jesus Christ! Deny yourself, take up the Cross, and follow Him -- for the world must be shown. The world must see, in us, a discernible, visible, startling difference.

Put your trust in Him. Not in people or circumstances or dreams or programs or plans, not in any human notion of what will or won't happen, but in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, of Daniel and all the others -- The God whose Son went through the darkest valleys so that you and I might be saved.

If somebody was willing to give his life for you, would you trust him? Of course you would. Jesus loved you then. He loves you now. He'll be loving you every minute of every hour of every day of the rest of your life, and no matter what happens, nothing can separate you from that love. I know it's true. I have found that sure and steadfast Refuge in my Lord and Savior - the only real safety - the Everlasting Arms! I've walked with God a long time. I know He keeps His promises.
- from Secure in the Everlasting Arms, by Elisabeth Elliot

thanks for this. So often I've wanted to put my trust in friends and relationships until we have disagreements. I'm often hurt or don't know how to act around friends. Perhaps the problem is trusting friends more then Jesus. When it should be the other way around. Only He knows my problems, thoughts and worries. He can help me and I just have to trust in him for everything I need. thanks for the encouragement.
