A Safe Place


"He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart" Psalm 91:4 NIV
I love the visual picture I get when I read this verse. I also love the feeling of warmth and safety that it brings to my senses.
I can just imagine a mother hen settled in her nest for the night - her baby chicks safely tucked beneath her wings. They have nothing to worry about and nothing to fear in the safety of their mother's nest.
There are times in our lives when we need to feel that same sense of comfort. Times when we've had enough of the harshness of this world we live in.
We need a place to go - a place to retreat from the worries and cares we so often face.
I found that safe place in the arms of Jesus. I know that when life gets to be too much to handle, I can run to Him. He will put His loving arms around me and protect me. He has proven to be faithful to care for me. He gives me the strength I need to face the world again.
The next time you feel you can't take any more hurt this world gives you, run to the arms of Jesus. He will shield you and protect you until you're ready to go on.
