Covered completely

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the [a]fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and [b]buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall [c]bear you up,
Lest you [d]dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will [e]set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With [f]long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”

Psalms 91 NKJV

Every week I look for things that are #simple and #profound

This picture was first posted last year by Ncruba a long time acquaintance and I loved it then and love it now

The silhouette and the setting sun are a promise for #rest and #refreshment that awaits each of us at the end of the day…so I say…find #SimpleThings that help you rest and post them online this week..

Take time to #Rest
Take time to #Refresh
Take time for #SimpleThings


Christ who was God in every aspect rested when he was tired, so why shouldn’t we? I think if we are forever tired we are less effective in everything and we make more mistakes that we need to fix, when we are still tired. – JT

Mmmh…this was said to me when I mentioned to a friend that I was feeling tired but still had quite some work to do. Then I began thinking…am I getting enough rest in my week? Do I sleep long enough and is it good sleep? When is the last time I woke up and felt fresh and ready to go, go, go? So my heart rested because I had been taking it easy and recovering from a particularly gruelling week.

This week was full of lessons and great depth and I found much learning was achieved in it. Yet if I just dash off into the next task I will be doing myself disservice because I will not have had time to savour and entrench the lessons learnt. I will therefore rest, relax and rejuvenate often so that I may always be at the very best I can be and bring honour and glory to Papa.

Take time to reflect on each week and be grateful for all the lessons then move forward with the confidence to apply every lesson.
