Jewels From Judy

Recently, I was returning from a wonderful conference in CT. On the flight home a child sitting two or three seats in front of me was really upset and crying. I felt I was to press in and pray for him. He cried out in a loud voice, "I want my blankey!" When he said this I heard:
"As a child cries because he is afraid of being in the unfamiliar surroundings of a plane, and agitation sets the stage for an uncomfortable ride, he reaches for what he knows. He reaches for something that makes him secure when the lights are out and he's all alone."
"He cries for his mother to give him a blanket. Not just any blanket - HIS BLANKEY!"
"I Am your Security Blanket," says the Lord your God. "Reach for me in times of distress and I will wrap My warmth around you. I will wrap My love securely around you and you need not fear."
"Hard times come and hard times go, but I remain the same yesterday, today and forever. Remember My servant's word in Psalm 91 and abide in Me and you will be secure."
