When i think about what I think about God, so many things come to mind. The one thing that sticks out currently is how God is my refuge! Last year, I made the biggest decision of my life to move to California. I left everything I had known for 20+ years and made this big adventure to the other side of the country. Packing up everything I had known and coming to a place where I knew no one was a daunting yet, exciting adventure. It has been an adventure of true joy because I LOVE my job, but the hardest part of this whole adventure has been making friends.
This season of my life currently friendship is not coming easy for me. It has been a season for me of loneliness and hardship of not having a solid community of people my own age. However, the thing that remains is that no matter where I go, God is my REFUGE! He has truly been my refuge in this season. He has held me up when I was lonely on a Friday night, he has been my refuge when I have had to go to an event and put myself out there. He has been my refuge through it all!
I want to share with you this verse that has been my favorite since I was in 5th grade.
Psalm 18:2 " The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge,
my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold"
This verse has helped me so much because I can know that no matter what I go through God is going to be my REFUGE! He is going to be my ROCK and he is going to be my DELIVERER! I want to encourage you, if you are in a hard time to cry out to God. Let Him be all of these things to you! He waiting for you to make Him your REFUGE! So make him your place of safe keeping today.
