Refuge

Do you ever have days when you cannot truly put your finger on what it is that you are feeling?
A bit of peace, a dab of concern… joyful and sorrowful at the same time?
It is a strange concoction to drink and mull on.
But you know, in these moments, clarity comes softly in prayer.
I am in this place, but I will be able to see clearly soon. Yet, it is not a very bad place to be…
Because in this mixed bag of issues, the Holy Spirit strongly shines forth and I am not worried anymore. Jesus, the Prince of Peace is my Friend.  Papa God is holding me…
How can anyone stay muddled with such Friends surrounding them?
I am near to exploding with love, and that love causes me to look at my problems and laugh.
The things that bothered me, they are awfully small when viewed from His arms.
What about you? Can you say, “God is my Rock and my Salvation, what can mere man do to me?”
He is waiting and He wants to deliver you from the confusion of life’s mixed bag.
After all, He knows what you need better than you do. 
So go to Him, and get a hug and a kiss. He died for you–lay your burdens in His hands and soak up His salvation and love. All you need do is ask and receive. 

“Those who love me, I will deliver; I will protect those who know my name.
When they call to me, I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will rescue them and honor them.  With long life I will satisfy them, and show them my salvation.”
Psalm 91:14-16 NRSV

    Aye. I am startled sometimes at how God uses the words He gave you in the past to jar your perspective in the future when you need the reminder. Often, when you are writing the original text, you feel it, but you don’t necessarily need the encouragement yet.
    God likes surprises.

    Dear Ivory. God gave you these words to pen to not only strengthen other’s hearts but also to strengthen your own heart. “Be strong in THe LORD and the power of His might”.

    I wish more people would write blogs like this that are really fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the net, it is rare to read a blog like this instead.
