Where I hide

You are a hiding place for me;
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with shouts of deliverance.
     Selah
Psalm 32:7 

The young ladies dance beautifully across the stage. Ballet Magnificat!, a Christian dance company, retells the story of Corrie and Betsie ten Boom in “Hiding Place.” (Watch a preview here.) The song by Selah wafts through the air, grounded in Psalm 32.

So I pray.
And I remember.
And I believe.
And I worship.HidingPlace2

i want to hide
to take a break in a safe place
experience a respite from my battles
with situations and sin and self

You are my hiding place

i’m scared
of what lies ahead
of who i am now and
of who i may become

 You surround me with songs of deliverance

so You break through
You are there
i hear You in song and
i know i am protected

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you

although the fear is recurrent
it is fleeting
but the faith…
the faith is lasting 

Let the weak say I am strong

what is too hard for me
is so easy for You
because of You
i am a warrior (Joel 3:10)

 In the strength of the Lord

not in my will, LORD, but in Your power
not in my cave, but in Your fortress
not in my chaos, but in Your calm because
You are my hiding place (Psalm 32:7)

For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:10

Bless you, bless you, bless you! Oh, dear sister, your post brought tears to my eyes. I think I'll have to do a post on hiding place. That's the best place for all of us to hide. You surely ministered to my heart and I thank you.

P.S. I don't know how to use my blogroll on wordpress, but you have motivated me to learn so I can add you. Thank you
