Reflection: The verses we read in Psalm 31 seem to be about where to be safe and how to feel safe even when in danger. Reminds me of a chorus from a Veggie Tale song from their version of the story of Daniel in the Lion's Den.
God is bigger than the boogie man.
He's bigger than Godzilla and the monsters on tv.
Oh, God is bigger than the boogie man,
And he's watching out for you and me.
I don't mean to make light of troubles by thinking a little ditty of a song will make it all better. But there is truth that God is our rock and our refuge. We are safe in his steadfast love. --Ruth Gates
