“The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.” Deuteronomy 33:27
Journal entry May 5, 2010
From time to time, I need a place away from the storms of life. When I am saddened by news I hear or someone causes hurt, or pain has taken over my body. I seek a place where these events can’t bother me.
I seek out God. He knows the news looks bleak, he is aware of what caused that person to say or do that hurtful thing or why the pain has entered my muscles or my joints.
God is my refuge—a place of safety where healing begins. I talk to Him there; He wraps His arms of love around me and draws me close. He speaks words of kindness and caring. He prepares my heart for what will follow.
I feel protected in His presence.
God has allowed me to understand the reason for most of the times I need of His comfort. I enjoy fellowship with God any time I enter into His presence. I also gain a special peace when I gain access to Him under times of great stress. For this I am thankful.
