Serenity in the Shelter of the Savior




Spring is here with buds, blossoms, and storms. 

Warnings are splashed across the TV screen. 
Thunder rattles the windows. 
Fear tries to fill my heart. 

Whispers of scriptures begin to patter down 
like soft rain to remind me 
where to take shelter. 

As the lighting flashes, the thunder roars, 
and the TV goes black; 
calm replaced my fear. 

 There is serenity in the shelter of the Savior’s scriptures.
My heart is fortified as I ponder 
His faithfulness to shield. 

Storms may brew so strong that windows rattle, 
yet fear will flee 
because scripture pours out 
serenity in me. 


At times questions are like buds that causes us to blossom
when we seek answers in our life storms. Let us ponder budding questions and the fertile scriptures which produce fragrant answers.

Where do I run to when storms darken my life? 

What scripture is my life-line of serenity

When did serenity overcome fear as I rested in the shelter of Jesus Christ, my Savior

God does use others to touch us at the right time with a personal message we need. I'm so glad He allowed me to be the one He used to comfort you with this post. He is so amazing. Shine on, friend.

I read this before you posted, but as I read it today it was even more revelant. Before opening this blog I had glanced at some of the current stories in the news and it broke my heart that there is so much pain in this world. Along with that, we just had a storm pass through last night but my soul does rest in the shelter of Jesus Christ. And thanks for the beautiful pictures and scripture. The one that I will hold close today is "He who dwells i the shelters of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty." (Psa. 91:1).

Love you and your heart for writing what God places in it to share with others!

Beth, God's timing touches us so often when we need a bit of comfort. I'm so pleased His word in Psalm 91:1 was His message for you today.

Thank you for your encouraging words about my sharing. I abide under the Almighty's shadow when I share what comes after a morning devotion. I'm on a learning curve in a bloggers world.
