I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go – Genesis 28:15
So I’m hanging out on my little arbor porch swing. I have three inside cats and one outside cat. The inside cats would love to be at least part-time outside cats. The only problem is that the outside cat is the alpha cat and seeks to absolutely decimate the three inside cats. She is seriously like the Terminator hunting Sarah Connor.
Just before I came out here to the swing, I let the three inside cats out. The cat that loves me the most, Bruno, is the outside cat’s primary target. As he steps out, he is looking from side to side off the porch. He is taking the slowest of steps and just seeing if the Terminator is nearby. He doesn’t realize that I’m watching both sides of the house and he is so safe right now. He is free to run and play as long as he is in my sight. There is no way that I will let my outside cat harm him.
I love sitting here and knowing that God is doing me the same way. Sometimes I wonder if I’m like Bruno . . . just being so careful and tiptoeing every step while the entire time, I have God seeing everything around me that I can’t. He is not going to let anything happen to me that won’t ultimately work out for my good.
Lord, help me always know that you’ve got me. Help me to stay as close to You as possible. There is no safer place. Amen
