The Hope That Holds Us

Something to inspire you and me today 🙂

When you sit enthroned under the shadow of Shaddai, you are hidden in the strength of God Most High. He’s the hope that holds me, and the Stronghold to shelter me, the only God for me, and my great Confidence. 

He will rescue you from every hidden trap of the enemy, and he will protect you from false accusation and any deadly curse. His massive arms are wrapped around you, protecting you. You can run under his covering of majesty and hide. His arms of faithfulness are a shield keeping you from harm. 

Psalm 91:1-4 The Passion Translation

Thank You

It’s been a decade since I first heard this song. But lately, this song has somehow come to my mind several times.

The song really is just a reminder that we all need a rescuer – a savior. A Savior who can save us not just from our own brokenness but also from ourselves. Because many times, if we were just left to ourselves, to our own devices we would just have self-destructed.

Thank you, Lord, for saving me in all areas of my life 🙂 

Resting in Him, Learning from Him

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 New Living Translation

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30 The Message
