My refuge – 2015.10.30

In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go;
give the command to save me,
for you are my rock and my fortress.
For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord,
my confidence since my youth.
From birth I have relied on you;
you brought me forth from my mother’s womb.
I will ever praise you.
Psalm 71:1,3,5-6

Once I was young, now I am old. But there is one thing I can tell you: the Lord never left me alone. My Lord was always my refuge. When I was in danger He was my guardian. He always was my rock, my fortress, and my shelter.
From time to time the enemy comes by and tells me of all the things I could have had, and where I should have taken a chance… But not long after I always realize not doing it saved me a lot of trouble. The path God has led me on was a good one. Not all my dreams came true and my great plans often failed. Still, I am glad He didn’t let me wander off on my own path. I didn’t achieve everything one would hope to achieve, but I have something I don’t want to miss: my shelter with the Lord.
I’m so glad He welcomed me when I was young. The Lord know this child, me, would fail unless he found Jesus. He was like a father to me from youth; He sheltered me with his hand when I was a child. And I know, He will not desert me when I am old, weak, and sick. He, my guardian, is with me.
My worship belongs to Him. My life shall have the title: He is the Lord, my Lord! I give thanks to him from all my heart, because he sheltered me with his hand and protected me. When I was in need He comforted me and gave me joy and peace. Truly, He is my Lord who cared for me all my life. Praised be His name.

Thank You Father, for You are a good Father to me! I am save with You. You care for me. I am grateful for the traces you left in my life, where I was carried by You. And I thank You for You will continue to carry me when I am old and weak. You are by my side, forever and faithful. How wonderful!
