A Weekend Of Living In Safety

The tree house looks as though a stiff wind would knock it over, but it's been standing like this since we bought our property. Yes, the red roof has fallen off since then, and I wouldn't ask anyone to host a tea party in it. No matter how wedged in it is, you might not want to lean against it ... or touch it ... or look at it.

Our battered and broken tree house isn't safe enough to be used as a tree house anymore. You would be risking life and limb to try to use it as a tree house instead of kindling for your next bonfire. It's not secure and safe like it once was.

There be many that say, Who will show us any good? LORD, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us. Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:5-8

Make this a weekend of living in safety. Like you would risk injury trying to climb into a dilapidated tree house, living outside the will of God is just asking for a broken heart. David lay in the darkness calm and secure, knowing that His God would keep him safe. He could fall asleep in peace, knowing that he was protected and cared for.

Whatever is happening in your life this weekend, you can still lay down in peace and sleep soundly. The light of God's countenance and the gift of His presence in your life are enough to keep you safe and secure in the hours and days to come. Give Him your burdens and prepare for a restful night's sleep.
