To Notice Danger

We are taught early  to recognize danger
and to be cautious of strangers
From early on RED LETTERS stick out
As we go into a new building
observing surroundings 
to be wise to learn EXIT points in case of danger
or fire
A forecast of a Hurricane could give 
some ample time to prepare 
while a tornado could come at anytime
causing destruction
There are many dangers in this life
but none is more dangerous
than walking alone one day
without the guidance of Jesus
in your life
knowing you belong to Him
for no matter what world danger you encounter
only your flesh shall stay here
while your soul must move on
He has given us a way to escape
The RED LETTERS He spoke
is the way to live 
to change who you are
showing Him in you
and you in Him
The Bible shall lay out your exit points
piecing life together so perfectly
as seeing a quilt come together from threads
the stranger to avoid is the devil
For we shall walk hand and hand with Jesus
holding on not leaving His side
waiting for the day to unite
