Security objects are used by toddlers to relieve stress and anxiety. As adults we also look for security items in our own lives. It may be the comfort of a certain easy chair, pillow, or comfort foods that make us feel full and content.
What provides security and comfort in my life? I ponder a moment and material things just don’t seem to answer this question. I need more.
During this Lenten season I am reminded of the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for us with his death on the cross so that we may experience the comfort and security of heaven. It doesn’t get better that that.
Psalm 46:1 ~ God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
