My Refuge, and My Fortress

Linking to Word A Day: North

Sorry, I decided against posting a picture, I hope you’ll understand.

It’s 1:30 a.m., Monday morning. I want to write a blog post, but I’m not sure what to write, or where to start. Psalm 91 is all I can think of.

Our Sunday morning started off like most, we attended church. Saturday, I got a call from a local shop stating that I’d won a prize in a drawing; so, after church, we headed to the store in Chesapeake to get it. We had plans to return home afterward and work on some things around the house. It was nearly 70 degrees, and hubby suggested we go to Starbucks for frappuccinos and sit outside to drink them first. Everything was so Perfect. Then, we headed home, north on Battlefield Boulevard. 

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty…

For He will deliver you…
Sunday, we were delivered.  

He will cover you with His pinions, and under His wings shall you trust and find refuge…
Sunday, we found a sheltered place, there is no other explanation. 

You shall not be afraid…
Sunday, when it sounded like all hell broke loose…  

A thousand may fall at your side…
Beaten and battered cars littered the street behind and on both sides of us, six in all, several occupants taken to local hospitals.

Only a spectator shall you be…
Sunday, when the noise finally stopped, we stepped out of our vehicle, unscathed, 

Because you have made the Lord your refuge, and the Most High your dwelling place, There shall no evil befall you…
Only the rear bumper dented by flying debris.

For He will give His angels charge over you…
For quite some time now, I’ve stated this in a prayer of thanksgiving whenever I get behind the wheel of a car. 

Having been rear-ended twice when stopped in traffic previously, and still bearing the pain in my body, I needed a promise I could cling to when getting behind the wheel.  

So, are you in Good Hands? Where do you place your trust?

If you believe in the power of prayer, would you join me in seeking healing and speedy recovery for the injured ones?
