When LIfe Gets Hard
I want to be a little girl that runs and hides in the shadows of her Daddy's legs and find comfort for a while. I want Him to whisper that He's still in control and that I need not worry because He's taking care of me. I want Him to say "that old world is defeated so you just don't worry my darling child." I am learning to run to Him and rest at His feet. And I can hear those words if I take the time to open HIS!
Psalm 17:8 "Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings."
Psalm 16:1 "Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge."
Psalm 16:8 "I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand I will not be shaken."
It would be so nice to disappear for a while, but what beauty He brings when we rest beneath Him. Watching Him work. Waiting on Him and trusting His promises. It's not easy to rest sometimes. It's not easy to wait. It's not easy to stay calm in the trials that come our way. But I know that He loves me. And I know that He's working. And I love my Daddy.
Psalm 51:10 "Create in me a pure heart O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."
