Sunday – Poetry

Reading – Psalms 59-61

Highlight Verse:

“From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety,”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭61‬:‭2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

When a young child gets separated from their mother, lost in a crowd or in a supermarket, that mother will seek her child like nothing else in the world existed. And when that child finds his or her mom, they cling to that safety.

On this Mother’s Day, this verse reminds me of the security a child finds in his or her mom.

As an adult, that security for David, the author of this Psalm, and for me is found in God.

I believe God seeks earnestly after each soul that is lost.

When that soul finds refuge in the saving Grace and new life in Jesus, he or she finds that towering rock of safety.

That safety goes well beyond anything this world can provide.

Have you experienced that sense of safety in the presence of God?
Have you thanked your mom today for providing that sense of safety to you when your were growing up?
