Shelter: Monday

What greater feeling of home could there be than knowing that the Source of all your love, and the Source of all your desire, and the Source of all your gifts, and the Source of everything that you’re blessed with is in your presence all the time?

Read Psalm 31 (BCP 129). Sit silently. Invite God to speak through this reading.

    From the psalm 32, the one you suggest reading: Be strong and take heart, all who trust in the Lord.

    Certainly the message needed these days. Thank you, Brothers.

    Your reflections on shelter hold more power and poignancy in this time of sheltering in place. I feel like we’re on the shore, watching a tsunami approach; it’s scary and we don’t know how devastating it will be. Psalm 31 reminds me that God holds us fast through it all, providing a tower of strength even when all around us is smashed to bits. God will redeem this somehow.

    There are two…
    In you Lord,I take refuge;
    let me never be put to shame.
    Be strong and take heart,
    all you hope in the Lord
    My soul awareness expanded to receive the safety of Love first and the giving of Hope will follow
    Thank you Brothers for all your gifts

    Brother James! What a timely message! God is our shelter in times of trouble! Sending this out to as many as possible!

    God bless,

    I am reminded that God is our place of Safety
    We are always on a journey towards God
    God will guide us to our final home

    The Churches are one of the safe places where God talks to us
    and through other people teaching us to be the kind of people we are meant to be.

    Thank You Brothers
