When The Almighty Hides Us

"He who dwells in the secret place of the Most HighShall 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.” Psalm 91:1 I read a story from Corrie Ten Boom in her book, A Prisoner And Yet.

Clarity of Winter

"And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way. Walk in it." When you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21 Clarity seems to come when we get quiet.
