God is Our Refuge

How precious to REST in the fact
that the LORD is our refuge!

We are HIS.
HE is our kind Shepherd.
We have NOTHING to fear.

Continue to look to HIM
in all the storms of life.


HE really is with you.

~ Psalm 62:5-8 ~

"My soul, wait thou only upon God;
for my expectation is from him.

He only is my rock and my salvation:
he is my defense; I shall not be moved.

In God is my salvation and my glory:
the rock of my strength,
and my refuge, is in God.

Trust in him at all times; ye people,
pour out your heart before him:
God is a refuge for us."

~ Holy Bible ~

Isn't God's Word AMAZING??
If you belong to HIM,
these promises are for YOU!

Blessings to you all this weekend!
In His Love,

Hello Camille,
I love the psalms!! We are reading a psalm a night and also in Hebrews. Psalms is one of my favorite books to journal.. My heart really loves to soak in David's words. They comfort, strengthen, and give me peace and courage.

Thank you for sharing how the Lord is our rock, we truly can rest in him.. A wonderful promise..

Have a blessed weekend,

Thank you for this scripture. I surely need Him to be my refuge.

We looked at 8 houses "AGAIN" and nothing. That makes almost 40...I'm trying desperately to just rest and trust.

Thank you for your prayers.

What a blessing to know He is our refuge...our hiding place. Love that imagery. It means so much to mean, especially when life seems so hard sometimes...I just remember that I can run to Him...like the loving arms of a Father.

Hey Camille :)

I have so much Blog catching up to do. Between my husbands unemployment and me working feverishly to finish book two, my Blog reading was halted. I missed your Blog. Thank you for this one... Resting in the Lord is something I am constantly working on. I have a human tendency to try to take matters into my own hands. I know it is only Him who can give me rest. To reukt be happy, we must always let God lead us. :)

I started a new Blog... *hugs*
