We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

Hidden in the Hollow

I love it when God gives me a practical example of a truth about Himself. 

As we walked up a trail today,
we came upon this gigantic tree!
It was huge.
We commented that it must have been there for a very long time.

What a surprise when we got to the other side.
The trunk had been hollowed out by decay or perhaps lightning,
 and I could actually step into it!

I immediately thought of the verse from the hymn,
Life a River Glorious,
'Hidden in the hollow of His blessed hand,
Never foe can follow, never traitor stand;
Not a surge of worry, not a shade of care,
Not a blast of hurry touch the spirit there.'

I felt protected standing there in the tree trunk
and I thought how much more so God protects us.
It reminded me of Psalm 41:4-
He will cover you with his feathers.
He will shelter you with his wings. 
His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

I love that,
His faithful promises are my armor and protection.
Just like I felt protected in the hollow of that tree,
So I am protected by God's faithful promises
which never change!
