I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” – Psalm 91:2
I remember one time I went camping. Our shelter for the camping trip was a small tent. When we put it up, it was late at night, and I’m sure we missed a few steps during assembly. A few hours after we went to bed, we were awakened to loud thunder and heavy rain. Before we knew it, our bed, tent, sleeping bags, and clothing were soaked.
I sat there in the middle of the night wishing for a refuge or shelter. It was so cold and wet. I wanted nothing more for the night to be over and to be safe and dry. In life sometimes we face storms. Perhaps your parents split up, leaving you feeling confused and alone. Or maybe you feel that no one really gets you and you’re angry and hurt. Regardless of what difficulty you’re facing, the good news is that you’re not alone.
God is there to be your shelter and refuge in the storms of life. He wants to keep you safe and protect you from harm. So no matter how hard what you’re facing might seem you can be confident in God’s protection and love for you.
