SNUG AS A BUG IN A RUG!

READ:
Psalm 91:1-16

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
-Psalm 4:8

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Hosea 9-11
Revelation 3

When I was a child, my family lived in a house my father built in the cedar breaks west of Duncan-ville, Texas. Our house had a small kitchen-dinette area, two bedrooms, and a great room with a large room stone fireplace in which we burned 2-foot-long cedar logs. That fireplace was the center of warmth in our home.
There were five people in our family: my father and mother, my sister, my cousin and me. Since we had only two bedrooms, I slept year-round on a porch with canvas screens that rolled down to the floor. Summers were delightful; winters were cold.
I remember dashing from the warmth of the living room onto the porch, tiptoeing across the frost-covered plank floor in my bare feet, leaping into bed and burrowing under a great mountain of blankets. Then, when hail, sleet, or snow lashed our house and the wind howled through the caves like a pack of wolves, I snuggled down in sheltered rest. “Snug as a bug in a rug,” my mother used to say. I doubt that any child ever felt so warm and secure.
Now I know the greatest security of all: God Himself. I can “lie down in peace, and sleep” (Psalm 4:8), knowing that He is my shelter from the stinging storms of life. Enveloped in the warmth of His love, I’m snug as a bug in a rug. – David Roper
Leaning, leaning,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on the everlasting arms. – Hoffman


No one is more secure than those who are in God’s hands.
