Taking refuge in the shadow of His wings


Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,
for in you I take refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings
until the disaster has passed.

I cry out to God Most High,
to God, who vindicates me.
He sends from heaven and saves me,
rebuking those who hotly pursue me—
God sends forth his love and his faithfulness.

I am in the midst of lions;
I am forced to dwell among ravenous beasts—
men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.

They spread a net for my feet—
I was bowed down in distress.
They dug a pit in my path—
but they have fallen into it themselves.

My heart, O God, is steadfast,
my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and make music.
Awake, my soul!
Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.

I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of you among the peoples.
For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth. Psalm 57

This is very much how I feel at the moment. I am finding myself to be taking refuge in the shadow of His wings. Taking refuge until the disaster passes. It may be a little disaster in the scheme of things but a disaster none the less.

You know in those moments when you have to laugh or if you don’t you may just cry? Sometimes I feel that way, I just have to sing and fix my gaze upon Him or I may just fall in a heap and never get back up again. To sing and make music while you are in the midst of lions.

Sometimes life will have you running for cover but be under His cover, He is a loving and faithful God. Remain steadfast, sing His praise and watch as His love covers you and overflows and washes your disaster away. Keep singing, remain close until the disaster passes.
