As I small child, I loved to snuggle with my parents.
They made me feel secure – snug as a bug in a rug.
They would wrap me in a blanket or quilt and hold me. We would:
- Sing or listen to music
I thought everything was okay as long as my parents held me close.
Like a bug in a warm rug, I felt:
As an adult, I know much in our world is not okay.
However, some things still make me feel snug as a bug in a rug.
- A warm house on a cold winter night
- Hugs from family and friends
- Long walks in the middle of nowhere
- A good book by a favorite author
One day everything will be okay for those who believe in Jesus.
Jesus loves me (and you) more than the best parents. He offers everyone:
- Forgiveness of sin
- A personal relationship
- A home in heaven
- A fresh start
Jesus guides through life’s good and bad times. His peace, joy, hope, and love fill my heart. That makes me more secure than any bug in a rug.
Will you accept His offer?
“They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord” (Psalm 112:7 NIV).
