Shelter in the Time of Storm

Here in many parts of the United States, we are in the middle of the coldest winter in decades. Bone-chilling temperatures leave people dreading to go outside. Most stay in unless it is necessary to go out, but staying indoors was not always an option. Strong winds buffet those who venture out. After being out in the bitter cold, it is such a relief to step back into the warmth and comfort of home.

A couple nights ago, I went to bed with the sound of the wind howling and whistling around the house. I was so grateful for warm shelter - a safe haven in the midst of the storm.

I am also grateful for God's protection in the midst of the storms of life. Things may...and often do...get difficult. We may feel that we are facing raging storms. Like those of us who have to go to work and go about the duties of life, avoiding the storm entirely is not an option.

Our Heavenly Father promises His protection in the midst of the storm. He is the "cleft of the rock" in which we can take refuge. He provides an anchor, so the wind and waves of the storm do not overwhelm us. He is our "shelter in the time of storm".

I am so thankful for that shelter.

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. (Hebrews 6:19a)
