Safe.


People may say that I am warm and friendly.

But this is no credit to me.

Before I encountered the Living God I was withdrawn and sullen; I was as cold and insular as everyone else.

I have come to realize that this was fear.

We are afraid of being hurt.
So we bury our heart and build protective walls around us.

But God takes away our fear.

God's Love is steadfast.
He is reliable and trustworthy.
Our love is requited.

So we have no reason to fear.

We are free to express our love for others.

Because we are safe.
