safe


one thing i'm grateful for is the sense of being safe...I've been pondering 12am 2006 last night celebrated in cities all over the world...i'm more than grateful people were safe, not blown up, mowed down etc.

however pondering being safe...being safe is all an illusion...being safe is a matter of perspective...safe is only safe when we are within a safe place...in our own personal panic room...you know the place you go when everything seems to fall apart...sometimes my panic room is found escaping into a dvd or some other form of self indulgence to escape pressures, dissapontments, stresses of life...

the movie panic room made the point... being safe is really a relative matter i am only safe up to a point...sometimes what we carry into our room is the very thing that makes us unsafe...

Being in / with/ following Christ certainly helps to make us feel safe in an unsecured world, and following Christ can give us peace even when we are the desperate places of life...when i choose to draw near by faith i can sense his presense...then i am safe

in the world you will have tribulation but be of good cheer i have overcome the world Jesus.

i guess i'm grateful for the safeness i have had over the past year, safe in the times when i've felt overwhelmed, safe when i was out of my sphere of safety, safe when holding on for the ride not knowing where the ride was heading and safe when i created environments where it was beyond critical mass i.e. 5k people showing up at our Halloween FunFest, 1400 people at Making Christmas Dreams Come True, or my kids venturing out beyond my direct influence yet i was safe somehow...all because of Him...
