If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? John 14:2
What might have been we’ll never know. Still, what if? What if the hurt, manipulated, beat up, scared, scarred people knew there is a place for them. A sacred and special place where safety and security reign supreme. What if we all belonged? Still better, what if we all knew we belong. Would it matter? Would the world feel less threatening? Would it change anything? I think so.
I need a safe place. My own place in the world. Warm. Friendly. Familiar. Protected. Impenetrable. But where do you find such a place? You don’t. It finds you. More accurately, the One who has built this special place for you finds you. In the face of trial and tragedy, Jesus brings you into a place of comfort and peace. A place that is yours. Just for you. Just what you need. Just right. Safely, securly with Him.
Jesus, thank you for giving me a place. Amen.
