Safety in Him


You will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. (Job 11:18)

A year ago today an EF5 tornado ripped through Moore, Oklahoma killing 24 people.  Although most of the images from that day were heart-breaking, one image told a different story – the picture of Jim Routon and Hezekiah Darbon embracing each other is one I will never forget.

It was a picture that told a story of hope in times of despair, peace in times of trial, and love triumphing over all.  I think it also paints a great picture of the Lord – ever-seeking to sift through the rubble of our lives, to lift each of us who seek Him from the ashes of despair to the incomparable safety of His loving arms.
