Under His Wings

He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.  Psalm 91:4
I remember seeing this picture every morning when I was growing up as my Mom had this picture hanging in our breakfast nook.  I remember looking at this picture thinking how welcoming Jesus looks with His arms spread wide.  This picture has always made me want to step into those loving arms knowing that once there everything, I mean everything, would be okay.  God did not promise us that our lives would be perfect with no problems or cares because trials, temptations and hurts will still come our way.  His promise to us is that as long as we are walking by His side He will shelter us in His loving arms and give us comfort and peace.
Under His Wings
by William O. Cushing, 1896
Under His wings I am safely abiding,
Though the night deepens and tempests are wild.
Still I can trust Him; I know He will keep me,
He has redeemed me, and I am His child.
Under His wings, under His wings,
Who from His love can sever?
Under His wings my soul shall abide,
Safely abide forever.
