God’s a safe-house for the battered, a sanctuary during bad times. The moment you arrive, you relax; you’re never sorry you knocked.- Psalm 9:9-10 (MSG)

Feeling battered by turbulence about you?

Seeking shelter from the swirling storm?

Head for Home.

God Himself is our Home, our safe-house in times of trouble.

He is the sanctuary for our wounded spirits, who binds us up, broken & battered, when we come to Him.  

And miraculously, we being to relax in the peace we find in His Presence, as He ministers to us from the inside out.

I have never regretted heading into the safety I have found in His embrace.

May you too experience Him as your safe-house, the never failing refuge found in the loving safety of His arms, whenever you need shelter in the storms of life. God is always waiting for us to find our way Home to Him.

Sunday Psalm: Welcome Hearts

Lord my God,
I offer myself up
to You today,
a living sacrifice.
Far from perfect
yet made whole
through Your perfect plan,
in and through and by Jesus.

I make You welcome
in this sanctuary,
in this place You chose
for Your dwelling place,

I know You have plans
for a complete renovation
for my rest and restoration
to make me ready
for eternity in Your house.

Although my flesh may fight it
and my mind try to talk me out of it
I welcome You
in all the fullness
You want to bring into me.

My heart,
my hands,
my life,
my dreams,
my hopes,
my resources,
all I am
and all I have
are Yours.


Do Your work in welcome hearts

Psalm 36:10b
