Word Filled Wednesday

The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 10:18

I love the visual that this verse creates….the word strong is so important in the verse to me. He is strong enough to handle what ever we bring Him, and His name, His very name, is strong enough to keep us safe.

As I have said many times, music speaks to me…especially when it uses God’s Word. As I have thought over the last week and what has gone on in the lives of those around me this song (as well as the verse of course :o) has been formost in my mind:

When I wander through the desert
And I’m longing for my home
All my dreams have gone astray
When I’m stranded in the valley
And I’m tired and all alone
It seems like I’ve lost my way

I go running to Your moutain
Where your mercy sets me free

You are my strong tower
Shelter over me
Beautiful and mighty
Everlasting King
You are my strong tower
Fortress when I’m weak
Your name is true and holy
And Your face is all I seek

In the middle of my darkness
In the midst of all my fear
You’re my refuge and my hope
When the storm of life is raging
And the thunder’s all I hear
You speak softly to my soul

Strong Tower-Kutless

I love how this song uses that verse…and reminds us He is our refuge, our strong tower, and our hope even when that storm is raging all we have to do is call His name.

So if you are feeling downcast today run to your strong tower and He will keep you safe.

    A strong tower has a brand new meaning after going through Hurricane Katrina. It feels so affirming to know that God is constantly there for us in this way.
