God is our Refuge

I think we all have times when it seems that our world has been turned topsy-turvy.  I think we all have times when we aren’t quite sure which way to go or how best to proceed…

We might cry out to God and wonder where He has gone or why He is letting things be so crazy, but then we remember that God hasn’t left our side even for a minute. He is always there for us to lean on, for us to draw strength and courage from… and then we look directly at Him and things become more clear.

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 46:1-3

Take heart, for God is near!  Even though we can’t always quite figure things out, we can have the courage to get back on the road and move forward because He renews our strength.  Even though we may not know exactly the best thing to do at any moment, we can be strong in the knowledge that we are not going alone.
