Rock Of Refuge

June 20, 2013

One year during my vacation, I walked along the shoreline of a large lake. As I approached a pile of boulders, I noticed a small alcove between the rocks and observed that a tiny plant had taken root there. The plant appeared to be absorbing the right amount of sunlight and water, and it was also getting something else: protection. No downpour or windstorm would ruffle its tender leaves.

The plant’s secure habitat reminded me of these familiar hymn lyrics: “Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in Thee.” Those words express what many of us want when we encounter people with evil intentions—people characterized by pride, cruelty, and a lack of regard for God (Ps. 94:4-7). When we are the target of someone’s wrongdoing, we can remember the testimony of the psalmist: “The Lord has been my defense, and my God the rock of my refuge” (v.22).

As our rock, God is dependable and strong. As our refuge, He can provide safety until problems pass. The psalmist reminds us: “Under His wings you shall take refuge” (Ps. 91:4). With God as our defender, we don’t have to fear what others will do. We can trust that God will support us when trouble comes.

Thank You, God, for Your stable and unchanging
nature. Help us to hide ourselves in You
when trouble comes our way. Remind us that we
don’t have to fight our own battles.
Refuge can be found in the Rock of Ages.

Read: Psalm 94:3-23

The Lord has been my defense, and my God the rock of my refuge. —Psalm 94:22
Bible in a Year:
Esther 1-2; Acts 5:1-21

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS AND OUR BELOVED NATION!



The Star Spangled Banner – Verse Four
(Click)


Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Please let me know by Freepmail if you would like
to be admitted to or released from my music ping list

Good Afternoon to you ,Kathy.
‘Summer’...Um well, it is Dry and warmish but overcast.
On the whole a very useable Summer so far, better than last years Rain fest.
The Air tonight is warm and humid, it even smells a bit like the jungle.
Was looking forward to the weekend ,but have just discovered i’m working it.
Will be back to GMT rather than Alaska time for Friday, a day off, let’s hope it’s a nice day.
How’s the Summer unfolding for yourself?

OMG!! Lucky you....$3.889 at Costco.

I’m working on Fred Meyer’s discount. We have Safeway up here...I don’t shop there very often because they aren’t on my way home. Maybe I will rethink and figure out what kind of program they have here. Only one has a gas station.

You get cents off discounts at Exxon stations. The amount you get depends on how much money you spend at Safeway per month. Don't know if they have this up your way or not.

Thank You Kathy. I took that pic at a PGR attended coming home event for HMM-364 at Camp Pendleton. The unit was returning from an 8-month deployment, their last. Those aircraft were older than their pilots and have now been retired. The unit will be using the MV-22 Osprey.

We love to support our troops! :-)
