My Confident Hope

Safe

Proverbs 18:10 says ” The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it and is safe.” So many times though, we choose not to run into that strong tower and we keep fighting until we are wounded and broken. It is so easy in our world to put our best face forward, while inside we are falling apart. We can keep it from people for so long but then when we finally break from the pressure of trying to “keep it all together”, the fallout can be painful. We become so adept at hiding who we really are that we think we are even fooling God sometimes. Only when we reach that place of true brokenness, can we give Him our wounds and scars to heal. Then we are truly safe. The bridge of Natalie Grant‘s song “Safe” just kind of kicked me in the gut yesterday when I was listening to this song. It says, ” When You uncovered I discovered that I am not afraid, but when we’re hiding, we’re only fighting to be sane.” The process of uncovering is not pleasant but I know that I am safe with the One who is doing the uncovering.
