A Place of Refuge

How abundant are the good things
that you have stored up for those who fear you,
that you bestow in the sight of all,
on those who take refuge in you.
In the shelter of your presence you hide them
from all human intrigues;
you keep them safe in your dwelling
from accusing tongues. Psalm 31:19,20

Ever been falsely accused of something? It hurts......Even though you know the truth, and the ones who love you best know. It still hurts. Especially if it is someone in your own family. Jesus knew all about that. His own brothers doubted Him. Those in His hometown did too."Isn't this the carpenter's son....." And He was God! If you are suffering from this heartache today, please turn it over to the One who truly does understand. He is the One, the only One who can heal from this particular wound that runs so deep.

Let the Balm of Gilead bind up your wounds today......be comforted.

He doesn't miss a trick.......

From heaven the LORD looks down
and sees all mankind;
from his dwelling place he watches
all who live on earth—
he who forms the hearts of all,
who considers everything they do. Psalm 33:13-15

Lord, I pray for those today who have been hurt by those who should be closest to them. You know this heartache well. Only You can heal these deep wounds. Bring them to a place of healing today and bind up their hearts with Your precious Balm of Gilead. Let them feel this warmth in their hearts today and let them be restored in You. Amen


  1. Don't we almost expect the hurts from callous strangers? You're right, the people with whom we're closest are the ones we expect to never betray and injure us.

    Thank you for your reminder and for your prayer. I receive both with heartfelt gratitude.

  2. Saying an "amen" to your prayer.

  3. Those we love hurt us the most -- but not HIM.

    You have such a sweet spirit, Lori. Know that.

  4. Amen!
    I also pray I do not bring hurt on anyone else.
    Thank you Lori for this wonderful post.
