Quote of the Day

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof.  Selah.  Psalm 46:1-3

Selah oh my Soul
God is my refuge
Sing oh my soul
God never leaves you

Roar on mighty sea
I refuse to fear
Shake mountains shake
His voice I can hear

Oh sing a glad song
Whatever the cost
Praise His sweet name
Whatever my loss

Whatever You sing
Whatever You will
I will accept
I will sing still


It is not of God's severity that He requires much from man; it is of His great kindness that He will have the soul to open herself wider, to be able to receive much, that He may bestow much upon her.  Let no one think that it is hard to attain thereunto.  Although it sound hard, and is hard at first, as when one has reached this state, no life can be easier, or sweeter, or fuller of pleasures; for God is right diligent to be with us at all seasons, and to teach us, that He may bring us to Himself, when we are like to go astray.  None of us ever desired anything more ardently than God desires to bring men to the knowledge of Himself.  

-- J. Tauler Joy and Strength, 112 


  1. I love this Psalm! I like your poem too, Toni! :) thanks for the encouragement!

  2. This Psalm has been my theme for the past couple of months now. It is so reassuring to know that at the end of the day with the world crumbling all around us, that God is still there and He's still in charge. I'm speaking specifically of world events, but it applies to the smallest details of our lives too.

    1. So true Jana... For me it is such a comfort to know that I have a place of refuge. I have been going through a lot of health issues...but it's good to know that He is a present help.
