When life brings challenges, losses, illness, or trouble each of us want that relief, that security, that safety, that sanctuary or haven. Each of us needs a stronghold where we can rest from weariness, regain strength, and begin to fight.
Finding THE Refuge – the best refuge – will make a difference in how the challenge is faced and will make a difference in how you come out of it on the other side.
And as odd as it may seem, with God as our refuge we can live above circumstance and find good; find purpose; and even find joy.
