Not gonna lie. I’m really tired.
And I’m thinking about that in connection to our prompt.
Kate. The gang. We: hide.
“Under Your Wings”
Jesus, let me feel the feathers
Soft against my face
Lighten now my weary load
And gently slow my frantic pace
Let me cry my tears there
Wrapped in Your wings of love
Let me drop my burdens now
Safe in strong arms above
Gather me now to Your heart
Just like a Father dear
Lean down to smile upon me
Whisper, “You’ve nothing left to fear.”

Marie, I LOVE this poem. I’ve lived in that place. Today in fact. Needing comfort from my Abba. Needing Him to lift my burdens. Thank goodness our God is THAT big and He loves us THAT much.
Oh, yes. Our God is so much bigger and better than we can fully grasp. I pray you feel Him holding you tenderly tonight.
I’m really tired too, friend. So grateful that we can hide in our Father and find rest and comfort for all that we face every day. Happy weekend!! 🙂
what a beautiful poem. “He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock, that shadows a dry, thirsty land. He hideth my life in the depths of his love, and covers me there with his hand. And covers me there with his hand.”
Thanks for bringing that hymn to mind, even if you didn’t know you would.

I’ve never heard that hymn. Now I have to look it up. Just lovely.
This is just beautiful, Marie! May you feel his comfort for all of your sorrows.
I do, Anita. He used you lovely ladies to pick me up tonight. 🙂
Oh man. That just spoke straight to my soul. Lifted a burden I didn’t know was there. Thank you for that, sweet friend.
You’re welcome. I pray you are refreshed this day.
Oh sweet friend… this is gorgeous!
Oh this is beautiful Marie! What a reminder that we can find safety and rest there with the Father. Praying you spend some time there today! And me too!
Yes! Let’s curl up in His lap. 🙂

this is so beautiful, what a privilege we have to rest in His arms.
Oh, yes. Such a wonderful privilege. I know I don’t take advantage of it often enough.
Reminds me of two portions of scripture. The first specifically refers to the Children of Israel but the latter, I believe is for us all:
I know it’s difficult to see now (1 Corinthians 13:12) but there will come a time in the resurrection when you will look back at days like today and realize that Jesus was your strength to endure.
Love both of those verses, James.
Beautiful, Marie. So, so glad that He can take our weariness and fear and wash it away. Here’s to finding rest in Him.
