1 Thessalonians 5:16 is one command I really struggle to obey. But while out walking and caught in a hailstorm I noticed the parts of me that were sheltered by my hat didn’t get hurt (even though golf ball sized hail was falling!). In fact, as long as I was covered I could actually enjoy the beauty and wonder of it all!
And I realized, with Jesus as my shelter that’s also true for the painful storms in life. Things that would devastate me if unprotected, I can now endure (and sometimes even enjoy!) because He is my shelter!
NOTE: The song, “I have a Shelter” by Sovereign Grace Music has been nourishing my soul lately ~ can you tell?! Here’s the link in case you’d like to hear a blessing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXwVgkmGDd4
