“God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.” Psalm 46
Though the news changes from day to day
and I am concerned for the safety of those I love,
Though I have no idea how long the world will feel threatened,
and the toilet paper is running out,
Though I am steadfast against hoarding,
and still feel the pull to gather all I can,
Yet, I know…
My security rests in you God.
Health is not my savior.
My bank account is not my rock.
Knowing what is coming next is not my safety.
Death itself is no longer a threat.
For You oh God are my refuge.
You are my Life everlasting.
You are my promise of provision.
You are the source of my security, my hope, my peace.
You are faithful.
And though I waver, You never do.
Though I am shaken, You never are.
Though I may fear, You have conquered fear.
I can breathe.
I breathe in You.
I let go of worry.
You are my Peace.
I am not unsettled.
You are settled and have settled me.
You Lord are my certainty in uncertain times.
You are the bedrock of my life.
“But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me.”
"For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, But My lovingkindness will not be removed from you, And My covenant of peace will not be shaken," Says the LORD who has compassion on you.”
