So, I decided to spend a little time making some jewelry. That always makes me feel better. And the Lord always seems to speak to me and encourage my heart when I use my hands to create. I love Him for that.
This time, I was drawn to a unique vintage hammered sterling silver pendant that I picked up several months ago. The shape of it reminds me of a tower. And this morning, as I was thinking about my emotions today, I was reminded of that verse,
"The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe." Proverbs 18:10
And as I attached the little extra group of pretty beads to the necklace, I was struck by how they so gracefully just dangled there on top of the silver pendant, as if they were part of it.
The Lord spoke to me in that moment. When I run to Him, my strong tower, I become part of Him. I can dwell inside of Him, and find rest. I am safe. I am secure. He is my protection. He is my covering. He is my refuge. And I am at peace.
