Midweek Morsel: Place of Shelter


“I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.” Psalm 55:8

You, O Lord, are my place of shelter. In you I find refuge from turmoil and storms. To you I turn both day and night to find the peace and comfort I desperately need.

In your presence, O Lord, I can find rest. I’m embraced by your unfailing love. You strengthen my spirit for situations at hand and then walk with me through each one.

Yes, you, O Lord, are my place of shelter. Help me remember to hurry to you.

“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10

*How has God been your place of shelter this year?

  1. I love Psalm 55! One of my favorite comfort chapters, primarily because of the way David ends it. “But I will trust in you.” Regardless of what we’re going through, we can trust in Him!

    Hi Cheryl,

    I love that God’s safe place is his unconditional love for me. That is huge to me, and is my foundation for confidence, hope, joy. Whew.

    Reading the post below, I saw some of your tackled list. Good job! Mark and I heard some Appalachian music out on a date a week or so ago. Fun.

    • Jennifer, I’m so thankful for God’s unconditional love, too. I need it every day! And hey, if you guys ever get a chance to go to the Smoky Mountains National Park, you should do it. You would love it!
