Shelter. It can come in many forms.

  • Much-needed protection from wind and rain.
  • A place to stop over in our travels from one place to the next.
  • The watchful arms of a loved one.
  • Our own home at the end of a long journey, or even just a long day.

Shelter also comes from knowing and dwelling in the presence of God:

Psalm 91

1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

I can’t think of anyplace I’d rather be than in His shadow!
