A place to hide

You’ve always given me breathing room,
a place to get away from it all,
A lifetime pass to your safe-house,
an open invitation as your guest.
You’ve always taken me seriously, God,
made me welcome among those who know and love you.

Psalm 61:3-5

There’s a place where I go to when I want some space. I would usually hole up in my room and just spend my time, or I would go up to the mountain and seek solace in watching the city but there’s a place better than my room and the mountainside. That is, being with God. He gives space for me to breathe, a place to get away from it all. His presence is comforting, like a safe house where I can drop my guard.

A song of Brian Litrell goes…

When I feel like giving up
I climb inside your heart and still find
You’re my safest place to hide

So when things are overwhelming, run to Him, He comforts us in ways we could never imagine.
