Stop Hiding

Don’t fall into the trap of being a coward
 trust the Lord, and you will be safe.
Proverbs 29:25 CEV

I'm a little cowardly posting this verse because I realize that bad things happen to good people but I liked the wording in this translation.  I also know that things happen for a glorify God.  The safety mentioned here is the hope of eternal security...something we tend to forget in dire circumstances.  However, there have been many times I know God has protected me with His kind mercy.  I've felt it.  I've been convinced that God was the one who saved me from something bad.
I've also prayed for courage and received genuine peace in trying situations.  
It's all in the trust.
