God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
Thought of the Day
This week our church opened up The Refuge, a club for teenagers. It is most amazing.
We consecrated it last Sunday and on Thursday night had our first big event. It was fitting
that our first gathering of youth was a worship service. The room was filled with young voices
singing praises to God. During our prayer time, one of our young ladies lifted up to God, words
that touched me. Caroline thanked God for the awesome facility and all the equipment that made
it cool, but she continued on to remind all of us that it was Christ who made it special. She
thanked God for blessing this place with His presence.
You know, we all need to be reminded of her words every day. We live in a world with
so many material things. We all need to remember that it is not our stuff that we find blessings in, it is Christ Jesus. We need to know that without Him we have nothing.
Lord, You are our refuge and strength. Amen
