Word Art Wednesday #29

Happy Wednesday!!!  Time for some new word art!  Today's word comes from Psalm 62...

Selah...pause, ponder, praise.  Whenever we see this word we should pause, reflect on what we have just read, and praise God for His truths.

Trust in Him at all times...we are to trust God always,  during good times and bad,  when things are going as we would like as well as when we're in a dark place wondering when we'll see the light. It's easy to say that we put our total trust in Him,  but do we really trust Him with our whole heart?  Do we wait on God to act, or do we grow impatient and decide to "fix" things on our own or "help" God out?  Sometimes in our humanness,  we may feel that God has forgotten about us, but rest assured  God will never leave us or forsake us, He is always working on our behalf, for our good.  All we have to do is trust in Him...always.

God desires to have a personal relationship with each and every one of us.  He wants us to confide in Him,  to share our innermost thoughts and desires with Him, to pour out our hearts to Him.  Sure, He knows all and there's nothing we can hide from Him, but He wants us to freely confess our sins and unburden our souls to Him, to tell Him our wants as well as our needs, to share our joys and our sorrows.  When we patiently submit our will to His, there is nothing that He won't do on our behalf.

God is our refuge, He is our shelter during life's storms. We can always find safety and comfort when we rest in His loving arms.

While searching my files for a photo to use on today's layout,  I came across this picture that was taken at my church's women's retreat this spring.   I think it convey's today's word pretty well...
