I got the spark coach app for my phone and the community task today was write a 1 sentence blog about how I was feeling. Why write a sentence when a word will do?- That word today is SAFE. Being wordy, my app timed out and the blog didn't take, so I decided to post it the old fashioned way.
reasons I feel safe
#1- in light of recent events where my DH circumvented financial safeguards I purchased a safe, Two of them- large one for in the house, smaller one tethered in the van, both digital and with a capacity to keep necessary items secure. It is enlightening to see what things of "value" I find worthy of keeping safe.
#2 - despite heavy rains and local flooding, our home is high and dry. My family is safe. We are able to extend a helping hand in time of need.
#3 - Neuralgia continues to wear at me. This week has been particularly bothersome with lots of electric jolts not only in my face, but limbs as well. My MRI that was scheduled for September has been bumped up to today! I will put up with the presence of symptoms if it means that something will actually show up on the test. God knows how much I can handle and I always feel safe trusting Him to provide what I need for each day. SAFE
#4- tonight I start my last 3 shifts before leaving on vacation. I called to make a doctor's appointment for MRI results when I get back. Guess who else is on vacation, returning the same day I do? And who do you suppose has the very first- fresh and rested- clear thinking appointment? Moi! I think that God had that one reserved for me long ago- so no matter what the results may be, I feel safe. I Know that God will not allow my path to go where he cannot keep and protect me. How can I help but feel safe on the journey?

    You are very clearly the Joy of the Lord. Thank you for sharing all the ways in which He is keeping you safe. I hope the MRI brings only good results and I hope you enjoy each and every day of your well earned vacation. emoticon

    I have enjoyed learning about the enneagram, which revealed that I am very focused on security. Knowing that I am "safe" is very important to me. You might find the topic interesting. It sure has been helpful for me. Our church has offered a number of workshops on the enneagram and I have a few books too.
