“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty whose power no foe can withstand”. Psalm 91:1 Amplified.
This promise from Psalm 91 describes a place of refuge that stirs the longing of my heart.
But how do I find this dwelling place on days when nothing feels stable and nothing I touch is fixed.
“How do you find Jesus in a place like this”? (See Silverstrands.org blog from October 17, 2014).
One of the advantages to “Faith through aging eyes” is a trail of memories in which I have experienced Jesus running toward me at a faster more intentional pace than my hesitant stumbling towards Him.
Maybe I am asking the wrong question. Maybe there is nothing I need to “do” to find myself in this secret place.
Maybe, rather, I become still and give Jesus a chance to orient me to my surroundings; space to quiet me with His love.
As I lean on Him, I listen for His heartbeat.
It is only then that I recognize it is His hand that is leading mine and inviting me to dance to the rhythm He has designed for me.
When I hear only one heartbeat and the sound of one step I know I am in the secret place.
