I was praying:
Lord, I don’t get it! I just don’t get it!
This world is such a confusing place and threats have come from all directions and in my zeal I’ve done some stupid things.
I’ve come running to you and asked for forgiveness, like you said.
I’m trying to follow you, to stay close to you, to listen to you, but I feel like I don’t have a sense of direction.
I know you have been helping me grow spiritually but now I don’t know what I’m supposed to do next.
I’m at a standstill.
I feel hemmed in.
I feel like I don’t have a vision for the future.
It’s as if there’s a kind of darkness around me.
What is this place?
Then I heard Himself speak in my spirit: Under my wings.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge.
