Sunday was a wonderful day for Nadine and me. We went to church and heard a fabulous sermon by our senior pastor and afterward headed to Colorado Springs to visit my mom. Initially when we got to View Point where she lived we tried to find her but she was nowhere to be found. She wasn’t downstairs. She wasn’t in the first hallway that we looked at where she usually walks. Not in her apartment. Not in the other hallway. Finally we went downstairs and checked with the desk who found her visiting a neighbor. She was up for her favorite place to eat, McDonald’s, so off we went.
On the way we decided to go by Glen Eyrie, the Navigator’s headquarters to see if we could see any wildlife before lunch. As we entered the property, we came across about 50 wild turkeys eating by the road. They weren’t at all spooked by our truck that parked right by the road to take their picture.
They were at peace because they knew that no one would try to threaten their lives. Wouldn’t it be nice to live with that feeling of freedom but feel safe knowing that nothing could happen to us? The fact is that when we are God’s children and have received His Son Jesus Christ, we have the same freedom that these turkeys have with the same feeling of safety that these turkeys had. God said in Hebrews 13:5 that He would never leave us nor abandon us. Never.
Today on our journey, be reminded like these turkeys that we have an advocate that goes with us to give us safety and the freedom to move where we want.
