I like to paint pictures. I particularly like collage. Years ago I created a bird using various papers and paint. The words from Psalm 91:4 are in bold letters.
It gets moved from room to room as I’m constantly redoing. It gives me such a feeling of protection knowing God covers me in such an intimate way.
“He will cover you with his pinions, and under this wings, you may seek refuge.”
Don’t be ashamed to hide under those wings when you need to. That’s what they are there for.
Today I had coffee with a friend and she shared her deep concerns for someone she loves very much. It’s a younger person. She shared the severe anxiety that plagues her. That breaks my heart.
Because I’ve been there. As a young person I suffered severe anxiety. I wished someone had been that concerned for me. Depression is common, for sure, but I think anxiety might be a problem for most people these days.
Seriously, every person I’ve talked to lately has shared they deal with anxiety. I’m wondering though, if like depression at times, it’s used as a kind of excuse for inaction. (Please don’t comment that I’m suggesting depression/anxiety is always used as an excuse. But there is no doubt that some people use physical or mental illness to justify staying in their status quo.
Hiding under those wings is such a comforting thought for me. I am trusting that this young woman can get some help. I’m hoping that she will find comfort under God’s wings.
I haven’t been feeling well. I’m always alert to satan’s tricks when I’m ill. It’s not at all uncommon for depression to rear its head after a virus. Did you know that?
So today if you’re a little under the weather pay attention to your moods. Hide under those wings. God will protect you.
