My Soul’s Retreat ~

myrefuge ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ used with permission IBible Verses
Whenever I am fearful,
 disappointed or discouraged
 I pray to my Father . . .
 knowing I’ll be encouraged.
For prayer is my retreat,
a resting place for my soul
and whenever I let go . . .
it’s when God takes control.
The more I hang on to,
my sadness and my grief
the less He is able
to send His sweet relief.
Whenever I need a break,
I go to that hiding place
where alone with Him I pray
under the shelter of His grace.
Prayer is my sanctuary,
where God’s mercy I can find
it’s where eternal hope
takes over my heart and mind.
Whenever I need a retreat,
a quiet, peaceful place to go
I go to my Father . . .
and just let ~ my prayers flow!
Psalm 91:1-2
“He that dwelleth in the secret place
 of the most High shall abide under
 the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord,
 He is my refuge and my fortress:
 my God; in him will I trust.”
