I Will Help You

“For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” ~Isaiah 41:13

When we don’t know what will happen, God does.

When we don’t know where the strength will come from, God has it.

When we question why or how or when, God knows it.

The same today, yesterday and forever.

Rest in that.  Blessings, Lisa

A Word I Don’t Like

crossstorm

OK, that new weather word “derecho” is officially getting on my nerves.  It’s a new catch phrase being used with alarming frequency by the Weather Channel and Accuweather clans.  Part of my annoyance with this word is that for the first two days I told people about it, I was mispronouncing it.  I said, “DEH-ri-ko.”  Evidently it is a much more sophisticated word, “deh-RAY-cho.”  Live and learn.  The other thing that’s bugging me about this word is that it is a pretty big, scary straight line wind storm, and they keep saying it may head our way.

I think I will stop thinking about this word now, and think instead on my refuge, my safe harbor in any storm, my rock.  “For my soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by.”  -Psalm 57:1  Yes, the storms will come and go, but Jesus remains the same forever.  Wherever you are today, pray, stay safe, and trust in God, your refuge.  Blessings, Lisa
