You Are My Refuge

Lord God, you are so good to me. Your love for me never departs from my heart. Your joy never leaves me empty. You, Father, satisfy me. My troubles are as ocean waves beating down on me, yet you protect me, looking after me in everything that I do.

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

(Psalms 18:1-2)

My God, I take comfort knowing you will never abandon me. You will always be there for me. Your spirit will always lead me to do right. Whatever trials may come my way, you will be my light in the darkness and my compass on the journey. I will not be afraid, for your promises hold true. Not a one has failed.

All glory belongs to you, Father. May the cherubim and seraphim proclaim your mighty name. May all nations bow to your majesty. May nature herald your awesome works. May all peoples give you praise.

Through your grace, my sins are no more. My iniquities are as dust, for you have given your son Jesus as a sacrifice never to blot out my name from the book of life. I will declare your glorious presence in my life. I will give you all the glory, for you are my refuge.

  1. Now I see why there is a disparity.. so when your readers go to your wordpress blog, they can comment, and they will not see the “” marks… as in comparison to when they go to your site that’s where you see the quotation marks, and there’s where you cannot comment. The reason I noticed is because I wanted to give you thanks the other day, and I went to your .org page and noticed there was no option.. and today I saw there was but on your wordpress blog. Thanks again.

  2. Brother Flacco,

    I wanted to thank a moment to thank you for all the time, visits and support.. Thank you for your dedication and commitment to the Almighty. Thank you for the servitude to the body of Christ, for Christ, through Christ by the POWER of Christ.. GLORRRY!!!!

    I really like how you indented this passage

    The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer,
    My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,
    My shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

    And the color contrast, It has a cleaner look, I think I may undertake this, as I’m writing this very comment.. Its cleaner as in comparison to the larger use of ” marks in other posts.

    Also, I do pay attention, Not many use a cross with a triangle, so Glory be to God. Perfected Faith is what it is all about. Have a blessed day.

  3. Wonderful reminders and thank you for letting them flow from your heart onto a blog post for all who stop by can read them and be lifted up in the Lord.
