Turn To The Source of Refuge and Strength

1God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. —Psalm 46

We get news from everywhere on the globe thanks to our modern technologies.

Sometimes that is very good; sometimes it can be overwhelming.

Sometimes it is good to return to ancient teaching.

We remember our instructions about helping others.

Sometimes we can reach out and help—we can send aid to areas stricken by hurricane, for example.

Sometimes we can only feel helpless. Physical items cannot help in some tragedies.

Before we lose our own mooring in the midst of all this information about tragedies, we return to the source of our being.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
