Just Watching 11 – Shelter

Leave a comment
Justice, Mission

i went on a wonderful, but long hike yesterday. As I type this early Saturday morning, my body. Is reminding me of that (and the yard work that I spent the balance of the day doing).   As I was hiking, I came across this plant and was struck by the single flower growing under the shelter of the large leaves above. I have no idea what kind of plant this is, but I thought it was beautiful. Immediately, the beginning of Psalm 91 came to mind…

You who live in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,
will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress;
my God, in whom I trust.”

I stopped for a while to think and pray on this, specifically asking for those in Nepal and other places who have no places they they feel they can abide in safety and security.  I continue that prayer today but also with the thought in my mind, “how can I help to be the one to provide Shelter?”
