Today in my quiet time, I was reading Psalm 4 and picked up on "Dwell in Safety."
As I pondered about dwelling in safety, I remembered times in my life when
church, home and work were not safe places in the natural.
My way had to be different. After being assaulted and harassed by a church
leader of 70 years in age, my way of doing things needed to change. I insisted
on hand shakes, and it gave me the confidence to know what I wanted was right
regardless of another's thoughts or beliefs.
When I felt unsafe at work, I can recall having been the victim of sexual
innuendos and inappropriate conduct by employees and customers, so I asked for
others whom I trusted to be around my work area, while other issues had to be
addressed with the owner.
Regardless of what others might say or do, we must do what we believe is
best for us.
Pursue the safe dwelling in the Lord,
