The word this week is “safe”
Kate Motaung Five minute Friday

The I can and I cannot of safety

//Psa 91:1

“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.”

I can stand beside you
I can listen to you
I can talk with you
I can cry with you
I can laugh with you
I can pray with you
I can feed you
I can advise you
I can support you
I can hold you
I can drop what I'm doing and come to you
All to help you feel safe.//


I cannot save you
I'm not God

I cannot explain it all
I'm not all knowing

I cannot heal you
I'm not the physician

I cannot remove it all
I'm not all powerful

Only the one who can save you is the one who can safeguard you.

We are not protected from the storms; we are held tight in the storms.


  1. True.
    We as humans can only do so much. Only God can do everything. Only He can provide true safety

  2. Visiting from FMF. Glad I read your post. I have a friend who has been struggling and I need to remember there is a limit to what I can do, that I can be there for her but I can't fix the situation. It's so important to remember where our limits are and to look to God for the rest.

  3. Oh Mary, spoken as though from a woman who knows and understands healthy boundaries. Such wisdom here. I love it! ❤️
