This verse made me feel good this morning:
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.
Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you. Psalm 9: 9-10 NIV
I don’t have to carry my troubles alone. I can hide in God’s refuge and He’ll take care of me. That’s comforting.
And I especially love that He won’t forsake those who seek him. I am trying to seek Him this year – partly through this blogging – and it feels like I’m always on His mind as He watches and directs my progress.
I can trust that if He will be there to comfort me and that I’ll find Him as I seek Him.
I just sort of feel taken care of when I read these verses.
Dear Lord: Thank you that you are my refuge, the One I trust, and that you won’t ever forsake me. Help me find you as I seek you. Amen.
