Inspirational Quote

This prayer comes from a beautiful book my husband, Cam, bought me for my birthday. It is called One Minute Prayers for Women, text by Hope Lyda.

It is entitled: Refuge

"You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance."    ~Psalm 32:7

"Faced with fear, I go inside myself. Emotionally I curl up so small that any threatening trouble will overlook me and continue on its way. I reach for other people, Lord, but for true comfort and peace I prefer Your presence. Your stillness inside my heart shames away boisterous difficulties. Harm cannot come to me here. You never said You would remove trials for Your children. You offer something better: a place of rescue.

Save me, Lord, from the loneliness of this particular struggle. Once my strength is restored, I will return to the daily clatter. Right now, though, it does my soul good to listen to the melodic voice of my Deliverer."

May this inspire you and help you throughout your day!
