Standing Firm

“Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today….The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” – Exodus 14:13-14

When I am afraid…..stand firm.

When I am in trouble, the Lord will rescue.

When I need a defender, I need to be still, and let Him fight for me.

Standing firm like this round tower. A tower of strength, refuge and protection during trouble.

“In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge. For You have been my hope, O Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth.” -Psalm 71:1,5

Letting the Wind Hold You Up

There have been many memorable moments in our Ireland journeys where the wind felt like it was literally holding us up, pushing us along, carrying us on the distinctive Irish scent of salt air and green fields.  Moments that took your breath away, pushed all the worry far from mind.

The beauty of an isolated windswept beach, County Kerry.

Sometimes, the wind that feels like it could knock you down, actually holds you up.  And rewards you with beauty and clarity unknown before.

“He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.  He makes winds his messengers.” -Psalm 104:3b, 4a

Lean into the wind.  He will hold you up.  Love, Lisa
