Linking up with the Gypsy Mama again. Five Minute Friday is “a time when we just write for 5 minutes not worrying whether everything is just right.” If you would like to join in CLICK HERE.


Those who live in the shelter of the Most High

will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty…He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings.

Psalm 91: 1,4

The images in these couple verses have a way of calming my soul. When we invite Him into our lives something amazing happens.

His strong arms wrap around us and He promises to protect us. Regardless of our circumstances, His shelter is secure and we can find rest.

Some of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever had with the Lord have been when I simply chose to take cover under His wing. The storm was much too powerful.

All I could do was huddle next to Him and wait for the strong winds to die down. His peace filled my soul and I found rest.
