Wrapped up in gentle feelings of His love, we are quiet. The warmth and strength of his embrace gives us the security and comfort we crave.
It’s like how Aryn sleeps peacefully while swaddled.
But take that swaddling away and she becomes very restless.
Eyes closed, she uses her arms to seek out the embrace she is missing. If only she would open her eyes, she would see that she was still being watched, guarded from danger, and loved.
It’s not the swaddling that keeps her safe and secure. It’s the one who wrapped her in it.
It’s not the feeling of God’s embrace that keeps us safe and secure. It’s the One who embraces us, whether we feel Him or not.
