Psalm 9:9 nlt


We all have times when we need to be sheltered.
Times when we need to feel safe and cared for by one who loves us.
The Lord’s shelter is always open, safe and secure, and filled with love.

When you have times of trouble where do you find the help you need?

Psalm 31:20 hcs


The world can be a devious place of schemes and scams,
bristling with gossip and scandals of every sort.
We may be victims of these things and as hurtful as they are
 we who trust in God live in His Presence.
We may experience bad things now for awhile
but we live in His Presence now and forever. 

When bad things happen and life is difficult
do you wonder where God is and what He is doing?    
What do you do to get back to the reality of His Presence?

Psalm 91:1 niv


When you are God’s child and live with Him you are under His protection.
When life is difficult, no matter the stresses and losses, the trials and temptations;
whatever causes you anxious days and sleepless nights, you are in His care.
When it seems you are alone in the scorching heat of a desert,
He will provide a shade tree.

There are times I am so focused on what is wrong and difficult
I miss the oasis of His shadow.

What is your focus today?

Psalm 27:5 esv


Whatever we experience in the way of trouble
God will keep us in His care.
No matter what trouble comes our way,
though our physical being may be threatened,
our spirit is always safe.
God will see to it that we are hidden in His shelter
high above the predators.

When you feel threatened or are in harm’s way where do you go to be safe?
How has God shown His care for you in times of trouble?

Blessings this day of grace,

Proverbs 10:25 niv


There will always be storms in life.
 They will come and go.  
Some will be rain showers and some will be hurricanes.

Where we find shelter will determine our vulnerability to their strength.
We can hide in huts of straw or in a strong fortress.
The choice is ours.

When storms threaten where do you find shelter?
