Shelter

So for the last several months, verses about shelters have kept popping up.
Specifically, Psalm 55:8 which says,

"I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm."

This whole concept of running to a shelter, crying out to God and then being STILL, has been repeated over and over again. So much that I felt like God was birthing a new song. I had one line. Well, let's not go that far, I had one phrase.

Tuesday evening while my people were at Karate, I asked God to finish the phrase and He did.

So here it is the very new, and very rough lyrics. (It's kind of like having a new baby so be gentle.)

SHELTER

I would hurry to my shelter. Far from the raging storm.
There I’ll find Him, in my shelter,
Where He waits with open arms.


I would hurry to my shelter, where my Savior speaks to me.
That still strong voice, I hear Him say,
"Child come and let me speak. Be still and wait with me.”


I would hurry, to be still.
In my shelter, I will be still.
I hear Jesus sweetly call me
To my shelter, child be still.
I would hurry, to be still.

He redeems my soul in safety,
From the battle that I wage.
He will listen, My God will save me.
In my shelter, I will wait.
Oh in my shelter, I will wait.


I would hurry, to be still.
In my shelter, I will be still.
I hear Jesus sweetly call me
To my shelter, child be still.
I would hurry, to be still.

How often I need to redirect my hurrying so that it is straight into my Savior's arms! Thanks for sharing this.
