Security That's Secure

The Lord is my rock
and my fortress and my deliverer;

My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation,
my stronghold.

Psalm 18:2

Where does your security lie? Is God your refuge,
your hiding place, your stronghold, your shepherd,
your counselor, your friend, your redeemer,
your savior, your guide?
If He is, you don’t need to search
any further for security.
~ Elisabeth Elliot ~

To my dear blogging readers....  I wanted to let you know that I will be taking a break from blogging for awhile.   I am very appreciative of all the emails, comments and encouraging feedback you give me.

Please be assured I have every intention of returning.  In the meantime, you can find me on facebook **here**   and you can find previous devotions I've written for this blog all in one convenient location **here**.  

I'd encourage you to visit the blogs of some of my friends.

Stephanie ~ The Enchanting Rose

Naomi ~ What Joy is Mine

Natalie ~ Delightful Details

Karen ~ Papercraft Memories

Always remember that: 

God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.  Psalm 46:1

I hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer.
