My Refuge

I can't go into detail now, but this is weighing on my heart and someone dear to me needs to read it. 

When it seems your world is collapsing and everything is against you and it is storming all around, it's so good to know that we have a refuge from the storm, a shelter from the shade.  Thanks be to Him who will protect us and guide us along the difficult path.  He will always be there.

"The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble." Psalm 9:9

"God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea.
Let the oceans roar and foam.  Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge!" Psalm 46:1-3

"But you are a tower of refuge to the poor, O Lord, a tower of refuge to the needy in distress.
You are a refuge from the storm and a shelter from the heat.
For the oppressive acts of ruthless people are like a storm beating against a wall,
or like the relentless heat of the desert.  But you silence the roar of foreign nations. 
As the shade of a cloud cools relentless heat, so the boastful songs of ruthless people are stilled."
Isaiah 25:3-4

Know that you are loved by a just, omniscient, faithful, merciful and mighty God who has the ultimate plan--the one we should seek.
