The thief has come for me on many occasions throughout my years—very nearly destroyed me on a couple of his visits—but God refused to let him take me. There was a time my faith had been shaken so hard, and so often, I felt I was living on the San Andreas Fault. So… I moved.
I still experience some mild tremblers now and then, but they don’t last long, and are more irritating than threatening. As I realize how permanent God’s love is, my faith grows, and the shaking merely keeps me on my toes.
I might get shaken—we all do—but I won’t be taken. And that’s a fact!
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
