Pieces of Refuge

When we are fearful, feeling alone, unsure or a myriad of other emotions that make us want to crawl into a cave or throw a blanket over our heads, what better time than to seek refuge from your heavenly Father?  He is better than a cold, dark cave, and brings light back into our heart so we can cast off the heavy blanket.

Psalm 62:8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.

Deuteronomy 33:27 The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.
Ruth 2:12  May the Lord repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge.”

Pieces of Grace

The grace of God is always attainable, it’s nothing we have to do or say to make happen, it’s part of the many spiritual gifts available to us, “JUST” because our Father loves us.

Acts 20:24  However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
2 Corinthians 1:12Now this is our boast: Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially in our relations with you, with integrity and godly sincerity. We have done so, relying not on worldly wisdom but on God’s grace.
Colossians 1:6 In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace.

Pieces of Serenity

We all experience highs and lows in our daily lives.  Praying, meditating on God’s word, being in fellowship with like-minded people, all good for trying times.

I have found that the Serenity Prayer works wonders when I need an easy-to-remember reminder of dealing with only right now.

2 Corinthians 12:9   But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
