Dangers Seen and Unseen

This week I learned about a recently apprehended serial killer from California called The Grim Sleeper. Apparently over a span of 20+ years he killed at least 11 people. The reason this is relevant for this post is that I also found out that he lived just down the street from some of my relatives!

Thinking about this drives home again how perilous the times are that we live in. I don't have to give examples. The media has us on information overload about all of the evil that's taking place in the world.

As we move about our daily affairs we really can't imagine the things that God delivers us from that we don't know about ... and I'll bet if we could it would make our blood run cold. 

I'm stopping right now to take a moment to give thanks for how He has kept me safe up until this present point. 

May He continue to keep you too under the safety of His wings.

Do you have a praise report of how God has kept you safe? Please share it with us.
