A Safe Place

RisoulTop1

O Lord,
I feel safe,
truly safe,
in you.

In you alone
do I find peace
and the strength to go on.

You are my safe place,
my strong place.

I come to you
with all that weighs me down,
the burdens I cannot
carry alone,
my brokenness
and pain,
and in you
I can breathe.

Here I sit,
in the safety of your shelter
and protection:
just sit
and wait

Psalm 62:5-12 (CEV)

Only God gives inward peace,
    and I depend on him.
God alone is the mighty rock
    that keeps me safe,
    and he is the fortress
    where I feel secure.
God saves me and honors me.
    He is that mighty rock
    where I find safety.

Trust God, my friends,
    and always tell him
each one of your concerns.
    God is our place of safety.

We humans are only a breath;
    none of us are truly great.
All of us together weigh less
    than a puff of air.
10 Don’t trust in violence
or depend on dishonesty
    or rely on great wealth.

11 I heard God say two things:
    “I am powerful,
12     and I am very kind.”
The Lord rewards each of us
    according to what we do.
