      How many of us spend our lives trying to be secure, not taking risks, trying to make the right decisions, hoping those decisions will keep us from suffering and loss?
      I like this quote from Helen Keller:  "Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than out right exposure.  Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.  There is not such a thing as security in this life outside of a total heart trust and faith in God."
     Can you imagine the insecurity in her life--not being able to see or hear?  Yet she lived a richer life than most anyone I know because she fully trusted God.  That's how I want to live, don't you?  I want to live life to the fullest--as a daring adventure!  I don't want to miss anything because of fear.  
      Help me, Lord, to trust you with my whole heart and to step out into the unknown with faith to believe that you watch over me, protecting and guiding me in every circumstance.  How much more fun life is when we trust You!
