Have mercy on me, my God, 
have mercy on me, 
for in you I take refuge. 
I will take refuge 
in the shadow of your wings 
until the disaster has passed. 
Psalm 57:1

Is there a better place to weather out the storm? 
In our worries? 
In depression? 
In fear?
With sympathizing but powerless friends? 

No, our God 

  • sticks closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24)
  • is able (Jude 3:24)
  • can do more than we can even imagine (Ephesians 3:20)
  • can make even a horrible situation work for our good (Romans 8:28)
  • is working in us, completing what He began (Philippians 1:6)
  • gives us peace as we turn to Him in prayer and thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6-7)
