It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

~ Alan Cohen
(American businessman and author, b. 1954)

No one finds security by wickedness,
but the root of the righteous will never be moved.

~ Proverbs 12:3

Gracious and loving God,
I know that security for security’s sake is not something to base my life.
Instead, may I find security knowing
that I am not alone,
that all things work together for good and
that nothing, absolutely nothing separates me from your eternal love.

Security is one of those paradoxes, like losing your life to find it. The things we pursue for security are not the things that make us secure. What are you discovering about security for yourself?

You might consider writing in a journal or sharing what you experienced.
