Not Safe... But Good

Daily Gratitude Year 5-Day 314: I am grateful God isn't safe... but He is good. 

How many times in our lives do we come to a crossroads and a decision must be made? The path before us has options. One seems safe... yet in the Spirit... we know that the less safe road is the right choice. 

It reminds me of my favorite quote from "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe." 

“Safe?” said Mr. Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” 
― C.S. LewisThe Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Our God is good... but he is fierce. He roars and he allows us to rest our heads in His peace. He watches over and protects his children. 

Having hope will give you courage. You will be protected and will rest in safety. -Job 11:18

What a beautiful verse for this picture. We all need a quiet place of rest. When the storms blow and the troubles come... we have a safe place to lay our heads. 

 I am grateful God isn't safe... but He is good.
