    “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge.” — Psalm 91:4

    Life is filled with many uncertainties. You never know when something unexpected is going to happen. So what do we do when we can’t be sure of our circumstances? We take shelter under the wing of the One who is above all circumstances! We take assurance in our Father who has promised to bring us to himself no matter what may happen today … in our world … and to our bodies. Our lives are hidden with our Father because we’ve been joined to Christ. He is our Refuge! His wings are our shelter!
