There is a secret hiding place where peace and calm is found. A place where you and I can be ourselves, and be appreciated and loved. A place where the condemned are forgiven, the weary are strengthened, and the thirsty are filled.
Many spend a lifetime searching for this place - but for some, it is found in the arms of their spouse, for others in the feel of a cozy shack, yet for others on the ride of their 1960 convertible. Whatever it is that brings you a sense of temporary earthly comfort know that there is still yet another place that can only be found when you close your eyes and abide in the quietness of silence. In that place your anxieties are overcome by peace, your purpose is reimagined, and your determination is renewed.
If you listen carefully you will even hear the voice of He who tells you “everything is going to be ok”. Know that God resides there and that he can be found in the center of your heart.
His presence is your refuge!
1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at the break of day.
