“He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge.His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart” -Psalm 91:4
Today is my little girl’s birthday, and Psalm 91 is a passage that I pray over her life again and again. I’m so grateful for the shelter and the refuge that God has been for me over the years. I’m so grateful that because of what Jesus did on the cross, we can come with all of our mess, with all of our broken pieces, and with all of our fear/shame/doubt/joy/love/longing to the One who loves us most and longs to draw us close, and cover us under the shadow of His wing.
What a comfort His love has been for me, and my prayer is that His love would be the place my daughter runs for rest, truth, life, and joy. For every day that she feels like the lies are loud and she’s not enough, my prayer is that she would find refuge under His wings, and that as she rests there... covered, cared for, completely known AND loved, she would be restored each time. Thankful that He is our covering and our refuge today.
Thankful it is His faithfulness and not ours that is our covering. Thankful we don’t have to hide or pretend or cover up our mistakes or our shame. We can run to the one who knows and loves us and find our complete covering in Him.
