Refuge


'My soul finds rest in God alone;

 my salvation comes from Him.
 
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
 
He is my fortress, I will never be shaken ...
 
Trust in Him at all times, O people;
 
pour out your hearts to Him,
 
for God is our refuge.'
- Psalm 62:1,2,8

  2. Dear Linda
    I noticed how the Pslamist used the word "alone" twice! Yes, He and He alone is our life!

    1. We seem to need to be reminded over and over again for some sad reason, yes?

  6. One of the things I love about these blog link-ups is to see the variety and creativity of photos to go with the verses. This one - speaks of security, safety, the refuge behind closed doors to talk and love and laugh and cry. My soul finds rest in God alone. Oh yes! I would not think of a latched door as expressing the message of this verse, but it does so - beautifully.

  7. I have quoted the passage Psalm 62:5-8 probably more than any other. To myself and to others. How precious are His promises. The picture says it all. God bless you today.

    1. For sure, Cheri, we have to speak Scripture deep into our own hearts before we share it authentically with others. Thank you for stopping in this afternoon!

    1. That wonderful latch opens up a little horse barn, but no animals call it home anymore, sadly ...

  12. I read these verses and thought of a song by an old group called Israel's Hope, a messianic Jewish group who only produced two albums, but every song was based on scripture.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
