I’ve been reading from Psalm 107 this morning. It speaks of God guiding us to “our desired haven”.
When I think of the word haven I think of a safe place, a place where we will flourish and be at total rest.
I was encouraged at church’s women’s connect group on Tuesday morning. The speaker shared how God wants us to really trust Him and to totally abandon ourselves to Him. I got thinking of how my children so easily abandon themselves to Dan and I – falling asleep in our arms in total abandon and finding peaceful rest.
How much more does God want us to find the same peace, rest and life in His arms…all we need to do is trust and find our haven in Him….
“Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress.
He stilled the storm to a whisper;
the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad when it grew calm,
and He guided them to their desired haven.”
