Life's Storms

In the Shadow

Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings.

Psalm 63:7 (NLT)


What do you think of when you hear the word shadow? Darkness, sadness or gloom cross my mind. But then I’m reminded —

 The only way to have a shadow is to have rays of light present.

This is where it gets good …

When you feel like you’re walking through a dark and difficult valley and you can’t see what it is God is doing, you can rest knowing He is present.

There is joy in the shadow when we set our eyes on the Light of the World. I find comfort in knowing no matter what is going on around me, I have a God who is my helper and his strong hand is holding me securely as I trust in Him — just as Psalm 63:7-8 tells me.

May joy find its way into your life today.

With my whole heart,
