God is Our Refuge...That is Sure

A scrap and doodling..... turned into a project....while looking for comfort.
 
Have you ever thought about the content of this scripture deeply?
I don't think I have.  Though, there have been many times that
I have clung to this promise time and again (and
again today)
with no doubt of it's truth.
 
 
 Webster's 1828 definition
 
Refuge:
  That which shelters or protects from danger, distress or calamity;
a strong hold which protects by its strength,
or a sanctuary which secures safety by its sacredness;
 any place inaccessible to an enemy.
 
This sounds like a safe place.
From the tempests and storms which rise up from
unforgiving circumstances or people.
 
There is a safe place in Him.
No man should put there trust in me. 
That is sure.
Our surety comes only from the One who
formed us and redeemed us.
 
 
His strength goes beyond our own.
Whatever we cannot face or walk through alone
with Him there is assurance of making it through
as His light leads and guides us.
In letting go of oursleves, we find true lasting strength
for each day and circumstance.
 
His presence is without fail.
Not only is He ever-present, He delights
in us and wants good to come to us.
All the days of our lives.
 
Never doubt that you are His Beloved.
 
God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1
 
 
Blessings to you,
Tamara
