Shelter


A shelter from the rain -
It's a universal need.

Sometimes we experience rainy days even when the sun is shining outside.
That's universal, too; no one is exempt.

Sometimes a deluge of problems leaves us drenched.
We need a refuge - a shelter.

Many seek one frantically in the wrong places.
But the best shelter is not a place.

It's Him.
His everlasting arms are big enough for all of us.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

So let the storms rage high,
The dark clouds rise;

They won't worry me,
For I'm sheltered safe within the arms of God.

Great post, Glenda. We all just need to remember that after the storms in our lives, the SUN does come out.... Praise God.
Hugs,

Our kids are going through some major storms right now! Sure wish we could help. Oh sure, we help in an important way, but they live in PA and that's sooooo far from us! But like Betsy says, the sun will come out after all this testing through the storm. Thanks for your post!

The everlasting arms. If men were truly at peace within themselves, there would be no wars. Great picture for your so true thoughts worded wonderfully!

How in the WORLD did we "meet"?

This post reminds me of the blessed assurance I have knowing..."the touch of hands so kind and tender.
They're leading me in the paths that I must trod.
I'll have no fear for Jesus walks beside me
For I'm sheltered in the arms of God."

How I look forward to reading more here!

How true! To have my faith to get me through the storms of life is the most precious gift I've received. Last night I joined my friends playing the dulcimer. We play mountain lap dulcimers and our favorite things to play are old hymns.

I'm glad we have God as a shelter in our storms. I love the picture of the cow!
