Aug 12 – Security Blanket

Remember Linus thecharacter in the comic strip Peanuts? He always had his security blanket! Perhaps with him in mind, somebody wrote the following- “I pulled my blanket around my shoulders and snuggled in the warmth of my family, my job, my good health, my financial security. But the winds of change whipped at the corners; Suddenly my blanket was ripped from my grasp and I stood exposed in all my fears. Then I looked up to Him. Slowly I was enveloped with certainty. The Son of God said, “My peace I give to you, don’t be troubled or afraid.”I was warm. “Is this how you feel today? Have you recently lost your job? Has your health or that of a loved one failed? How will it be if our security blanket t is ripped from us? The only way to have true security it to become properly related to the One who holds all our tomorrows in His hand. His name is Jesus Christ, God’s Son. He never changes. He is “ the same yesterday, today and forever.”
