Who or What is your strong tower?

Psalm 61:2-4

From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For You have been a shelter for me,
A strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.

Proverbs 18:10

The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
The righteous run to it and are safe.

Oh what beautiful words to give us assurance.

My prayer today is that whatever you are using to subside your pain, cover your shame, mend your broken heart; you will cry out to the Lord instead. He is trustworthy and loves you until the end of time.

It’s a lovely Saturday afternoon. The sun is shining and the flowers are blooming. Time to look to the creator instead of these temporary bandaids.

It’s always been a matter of trust,

Exciting News!

I’m back. Tell your friends!

I’ve missed you blog world. It’s been nearly two years since I’ve been on. We are now settled in what I call “The Dunning Mountain Retreat”, we are pearch in the Hualapai Mountains watching the sun set, the clouds crawl over like a dream and the wild life from the darling quail to the big bulky Elk who visit occasionally. We installed fake grass last fall so our grazing friends have moved on to not so green, but tastier pastures.

This is life, this is real so it seems we always have some rumblings to work through.

Browse my past stories, subscribe so you can keep up as we walk through this life together, one story at a time.

Today I was thinking about this quote from the book of Ruth 2:13; “Let me find favor in your sight, my lord; for you have comforted me, and have spoken kindly to your maidservant, though I am not like one of your maidservants.”

I went many years thinking I was not fit to be one of God’s maidservants, He reminds me time and again with His gentle hand how He feels about me, He looks on me with favor, He looks on me with gentleness of a loving Father. No matter the circumstance His tenderness amazes me.

So, who are His maidservants? Who are His friends? Who walks with Him, hand in hand?

John 1:12-13 says; But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

When you know He is knocking on the door, answer it. Receive Him. Welcome Him.

Walking Hand in Hand (sometimes leaning pretty hard),

Susie
