Absence of danger?
"The Christian finds safety not in the absence of danger, but in the presence of God." - Anon
Thomas a Kempis wrote something similar in the Imitation of Christ. He said,
"When Jesus is present, all is good and nothing seems difficult;
but when Jesus is absent, all is hard."
I find these words quite reassuring today, because it is our natural inclination to run away from trials and hardships, or at least to play it safe. However, LIFE always presents us with struggles and it is then that we need to remember that God is present with us.
"Behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." - Matthew 28:20
Living in Grace
