What does that word mean to you? The meaning has changed for me recently. If you had asked me a year ago what it meant to be safe I would have undoubtedly thought of the person who’s arms I felt safe in. He was my safe place. But that is one of those fairytale kind of fallacies we tell ourselves or that we are taught when we are growing up. Even if I found my perfect guy tomorrow, there would not be true safety and security in that relationship. Now when most people think of safety they think of physical safety. That’s not what I’m referring to here. When I think of safety I think of having the safety to fall down and knowing that it’s ok. Being secure in the fact that I am loved, even when I fail. Having the safety to be truly and authentically me and know that I am loved completely and unconditionally. Knowing that there is one place I can go, one relationship I can cling to, and find all the security I need therein. As a friend said today during our weekly Bible study time, “People are broken.” That applies to all people. Even the people who love you the most can make you feel insecure in your own skin. People will fail you. That is about as clear a fact as they come. But God never will. He is everything you need. I urge you to fall into Him for your safety and security. Fall into Him to see yourself clearly. Fall into Him to feel the pull of unconditional love.
