Storms & Smiles

Psalm 57 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

2 (1) Show me favor, God, show me favor; for in you I have taken refuge. Yes, I will find refuge in the shadow of your wings until the storms have passed.
3 (2) I call to God, the Most High, to God, who is accomplishing his purpose for me.

via Ps 57 KJV;CJB – Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful – Bible Gateway.

Until the storm passes by – a refuge in the storm.

Yes, may each of us find refuge in the Shadow of His wings until the storms have passed.

And what of storms?
They are scary and yet a peculiar excitement captivates us when they come. It’s the power, I think. Even the beauty of them. There was one in particular. I watched safely from the floor of my kitchen through the patio door. HE was with me. Yes. He is indeed our Refuge in storms.

But there’s more: Verse 3

The storms come to accomplish His purpose in us. And perhaps as we accept Him as our refuge His purposes become clear.  Or not. And if not — we still have the refuge! 🙂 

Enjoy the video — if you like Southern Gospel. 🙂 And if not – perhaps I’ll catch you next with some Third Day or Toby Mac. 🙂

Be Hidden in CHRIST,

Thank You, ABBA, for calling us to Yourself – our Place of Refuge. And there’s a dear family in need of You; and again, I ask You for a textbook perfect surgical procedure for Josh and a complete recovery. And Jamie and Terri, Kerri, Dori, Lance, Carol, Rick and Others. Thank You for taking our petitions, LORD JESUS, and presenting them to ABBA just the right way. And, ABBA, Some One’s dear Face I see in this moment; heal her heart and, HOLY SPIRIT, help her take refuge in You even now in this moment. And there’s Another and Another, it’s like their souls are hemorrhaging; please help them agree to let You stop the bleeding. Bleeding. I still see the picture – 26 weeks. Judge thinks he has legal grounds so no it’s not murder. You know differently, I agree with You. Forgive Him, LORD,have mercy; give grace and space to repent. Grace and space for many repentance[s], I pray. Awaken us, ABBA. Peace and protection for Israel I pray; revival for the proud Church; and Your comforting and strengthening Presence for the Persecuted Church and many more things that come to this place in the minds of each Reader – bless them, strengthen them, empower them to believe and receive in JESUS’ name. Amen and amen.
