The Hiding Place

20160423_152620

My feather’s were ruffled this morning when I heard about a young woman,that got beat up, while riding a train in Chicago..My heart broke for her as she described the experience and expressed her disappointment that no one came to her rescue. The month of April is recognized as Child Abuse Prevention month. Each time  I scan the land of internet, I read about atrocities committed against young children. There is a song that says, you are my hiding place, you always fill my heart with songs of deliverance, whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you. We all need a hiding place. A place of safety, a place of peace, a place to be still and refuel. My sister told me the other day, that I can’t save the world, and I know that, but I know the one that knows the number of hairs  on our heads . Almighty God cares about every single human being on earth.He sees the tears that stream down the faces of each child, teen and adult.He sees…He hears the cry of our hearts, He hears the pain…There is nothing unnoticed.

He gives, He loves, He cares for you..As the world turns, it would be very easy to lose faith in mankind, but deep in my heart I know that there are good Samaritan’s on planet earth. Maybe they are far and few apart, but there are unsung heroes, that we never hear about…Where is your hiding place?

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most high, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Psalm 91:1

  1. There are far more good people in the world than we realize. They just don’t have the publicists that the bad ones do. The “news media” loves to tell us all of the worst, and there surely are horrors. But there’s more than horror, and I prefer to have a more realistic view of the world than the tabloids and tv present.

    As for hiding: if our security lies only in ourselves, hiding is a reasonable option. But if our security lies elsewhere, we’re free to live in the world without fear — a real blessing.

  2. In the early days, there were a majority of good guys and a few bad guys. It seems like the numbers have shifted in today’s society along with zero tolerance. Sad state of affairs. Believing in a superior being is about the best thing one can do to ride the waves of today’s environment otherwise you just can’t make sense of it all.

    • Thank you for your comment. I am officially back online as of today. I had been using only my phone for almost four months.. I look forward to visiting my blogging friends…

  3. Beautiful words, stunning pictures on the heels of a touching and sadly truthful piece of writing. So much hurt and pain in this world but like you I agree : you never hear about the unsung heroes. Sadly the masses long to hear more and more of the negative, the destructive, the painful etc and NOT all that is good. AMEN and Thank you my dear! 🙂

      • I’ve been away from WP for about a month…so busy with gardening for me and for others. At this time of year everything takes 2nd place as it is our seasonal work…but good to see you back and I hope to keep in touch as and when able to just now!
