So often it seems we are very content living life in our own strength, until an event occurs that we are unable to control. Maybe it is a diagnosis, a job loss, a disappointment, a life changing decision, or a broken heart. Then, we run to our Heavenly Father. He desires that we run to Him, like a little child running to their loving Daddy. He is our refuge, our safe place, in times of difficulty. He is present with us during the most troubling times of our lives. However, He does not only want our trust, prayers, and attention during the hard times. He wants to be our safe place of peace and rest during the happy, blissful days too. Pray we realize the presence of our Heavenly Father…and rest in His loving and protective arms…during both the hard and easy times…today and always!
The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7
