We might feel, somewhere so deep inside that we’re not conscious of it, that we can be at peace only if we feel safe enough in the world. And so we spend a great deal of energy searching for a safety we can never find. We can never find it, because the search itself distracts us from the truth: the only safety that will ultimately satisfy us, resting in God’s embrace, is already ours. We are already there just by being here.
