Blustery Day

The tradewinds have been gusty and heavy at times here in Maui today. Our yard is filled with many branches that will have to be picked up and hauled away once the winds die down. Some days our lives seem to be "blustery" with the winds of adversity, don't they? You wonder if the adversity will ever go away or die down. That's when we must remember that God promises to be our refuge in the times of trouble. Here are a few verses to remind us that God is our refuge and strength:

"The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, O Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you." Psalm 9:9-10

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Psalm 91:1-2

"God is our refuge and strength; an ever present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea." Psalm 46:1-2

"It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes."
Psalm 118:8-9

"For you have been my refuge, a strong tower aganst the foe. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings." Psalm. 61:3-4

I trust you will only have calm during this holy season!
