Safe in our Father's arms

Where do you put your trust? Do you trust that you'll have that job until you're ready to get a new one? Do you trust that your spouse will never hurt you, betray you, or even leave you? Do you trust that your kids will behave a certain way because you've raised them to? What happens when (not if, but when) some or all of these things fall apart?
There is one place we can put our trust. There is only one who will never leave, betray, hurt, or disappoint us. Only one thing is certain. Only one thing remains constant. In a fast paced, hustle and bustle world, full of ups and downs, there is only one thing we can trust will be a safe place for us to dwell secure. In Christ.
Does this mean we shouldn't trust each other? Does this mean we shouldn't relax and trust that our finances will be taken care of? Does it mean we shouldn't even bother raising our kids in a way that would please God? By no means! It means the opposite. Because of our faith in Christ, we can do all these things, and more! What an awesome feeling! No matter the circumstances or conditions we find ourselves in, we dwell secure! "On Christ the solid rock, we stand"

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6

"And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock." Matthew 7:25
