BJ: Shelter in Time of Storm

The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom should I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom should I be afraid? When evildoer close in on me to devour my flesh, it is they, my adversaries and enemies, who stumble and fall.

Even if my army encamps against me, my heart will not succumb to fear; even if war breaks out against me, I will not have my trust shaken.

There is only one thing I ask of the Lord, just one thing I seek: to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life so that I may enjoy the beauty of the Lord and the gaze of his temple. 

For He will hide me in His shelter in times of trouble. He will conceal me under the cover of His tent and place me high upon a rock. I am confident that I will behold the goodness of the Lord in the land of living. Place your hope in Lord, be strong and courages in your heart, and place your hope in the Lord. Amen. (Psalm 27)


Spirituality: To Everything There is a Season

There is a season for everything

There is a season for everything

To everything there is a season.

A time for every purpose under heaven.

A time to be born and a time to die.

A time to plant and a time to pluck what is planted.

A time to kill and a time to heal.

A time to break down and a time to build up.

A time to weep and a time to laugh.

A time to mourn and a time to dance.

A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones.

A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing.

A time to gain and a time to lose.

A time to keep and a time to throw away.

A time to tear and a time to sew.

A time to keep silence and a time to speak.

A time to love and a time to hate.

A time of war and a time of peace. – Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8
