Surrounded by God

I was reading a book called Beside Still Waters in my quiet time the other day, and was deeply affected by a passage written by Charles Spurgeon:

Within Thy circling power I stand,
On every side I find Thy Hand;
Awake, asleep, at home, abroad,
I am surrounded still with God.

What comforting words Spurgeon reminds me of, that as God's child I am surrounded by the loving arms of God. I am so grateful that no matter where I go, I am in his power. As I drive around town, not only with my life in the car, but the precious life of our son in the back seat with me, I am filled with peace knowing that it is within his circling power I stand (drive, walk, and move).

It is with his circling power that I find refuge, peace and hope. Hope to train Tyler in a way that is pleasing to God, peace in a world that is full of destruction and grief, and refuge from the dangers and worries of this world. There is no other place I would rather be.

"The hand of God sustains those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty," Charles Spurgeon. How my soul longs to be in the secret place of the Most High. Praise be to God for his sustaining grace.

Beside Still Waters can be found at the CLC bookstore amongst many other excellent books. Check out the website at http://www.covlife.org/tools/bookstore.php. Posted by Picasa
