Infringe upon peace
As if with a sword
Then His light appears
More brightly against the darkened tears
In the midst of sadness
The shadow of His wings
Is refuge, a place to cling
From any and every direction
He has come to shield and prepare
His child made in His image
For He promises to stay within
Of your woeful pains and longings
So close He will stay
If you remain in Him, dark or day
It’s a two way street
Even though now we never meet
We will in the future
For this life turns into forever
When we keep loving our Creator
He will cover you with His feathers and under HIs wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart (Psalm 91:4).
A couple days ago I went out on a walk seeking shadows. Most often I am seeking His light. Lo and behold, light must preclude all shadows. It is interesting to me to consider running to the shadow of God’s immenseness. There we are sort of hidden from the world, a true safe place. Then, to reach for His light when darkness closes in, the unwanted visitor of doom. His light exposes, cleanses, and heals.
