In the Shadow of Your wings...

Dear Reader, be patient with me tonight. Someone needs this Scripture and picture. I don't know which one of you or why, but here it is.

This morning during my Bible study time this Scripture from Psalm 63: 7-8 really stuck out in my mind. As I reviewed other Scriptures I kept hearing the phrase over and over like music, "sing in the shadow of His wings." I thought what a picture of this earthly life.

We are asked to give thanks in all things even though we can not see the reasons why or the hows or the face of God. Often though, we see the shadow of His love through nature, through friends and neighbors, through family, through His Word.

So for someone who is needing encouragement tonight, or perhaps God is preparing me for such a time, remember, "O Lord, because You are my help, I sing in the shadow of Your wings. My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me" (Psalm 63:7-8).

Sing, sweet Sister in Christ. If only just to make Satan unhappy and to please God, sing. You are not alone. You are in the shadow of His wings.

For His Glory,
