“From the end of the earth I call to You when my heart is faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I; for You have been a refuge for me, a tower of strength against the enemy. Let me dwell in Your tent forever; let me take refuge in the shelter of Your wings.” Psalm 61:2-4
You ARE my refuge — a very present help! Thank you for believing in me, for being patient with me, for providing for me and walking next to me — sometimes even carrying me!! I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have You to lean on!! You ARE my rock that is higher than I am, and you ARE my refuge when all seems to be against me. You ARE a tower of strength that I can lean on and run to! You ARE my shelter where I am safe, and the strength of my heart — I am so glad I never had to do life without You! And I am so grateful that life with You has changed me!
To those who mourn in Zion you traded BEAUTY for ASHES, GLADNESS for MOURNING and a GARMENT OF PRAISE instead of a SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS “….so they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified!” Isaiah 61:3
You tested my “sapling faith” with a journey I never would have chosen, to prove to me that the choice of remaining faithful to You and to Your Word would produce an “oak tree faith” rooted in You that could not be moved — unshaken for You!!
Thank you for holding my hand all the way — I have no safer place — I have no closer Friend!
