I like movies. My son, Ethan, and I have watched many of them together over the years. One movie we went to see a few years ago was the remake of “True Grit.” While it’s tough to beat the original version with John Wayne, I really enjoyed the latest version of this classic western. One of the things I particularly liked about it was the musical score. If you listen closely, you can hear the song “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms.” The words of this song give us confidence that we are indeed “safe and secure from all alarms” when we trust in God.
The reality for us today is that we live in a world that is often far from safe.
