A Safe Place – Psalm 91:4

“He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” Psalm 91:4 Under His wings we find refuge. Refuge. From our self-criticisms.

Faltering – Psalm 73:1

“Truly God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart.” Psalm 73:1 I didn’t want to write this today. Not after what I wrote yesterday. Because today, I’m feeling such discouragement.
