"Take Refuge in Him..."

Last evening, Pastor Keith Carroll of Mount Zion Wesleyan Church in North Carolina sent me Psalm 18:30, saying "I am praying these words over your Dad and family"...

"God's way is perfect! The promise of The Lord has proven to be true. He is a shield to all those who take refuge in Him." -- Psalm 18:30 (GWT)

This verse is our anchoring ground for today. Dad told the doctor a few days ago: "When The Lord is ready for me, He'll take me." We stand with Dad on that statement. 

Speaking of Dad, he was much more quiet on Wednesday. Needed oxygen but still communicates with us when he wants to or when we want him to. The Hospice nurses usually leave the room in tears because Dad, even in his weakness and deafness, strongly and loudly expresses his humbled cries of gratitude for their tender care of and for him.  

So, the waiting continues and what a glorious waiting it is. We are all physically, emotionally and mentally weary, however our souls are strong in The Lord. We take refuge in our God alone! 

We are anchored in Jesus!
