Sometimes life seems full of shadows. It’s hard to see the light, and all seems dark and dreary. Now, picture a mother hen, with little chicks gathered beneath her wings. They can’t see the light, and are certainly in the dark, yet there they are very close to their mother’s heart.
And so it is with us and God. He promises to shelter us in the shadow of His wings. And there, we can rest, secure. Around us, storms may rage. Things will go wrong. Yet we are safe and close to the Father’s heart.
No better place to be.
