Day 36: Christ Our Refuge

All of us have days that we wish we never would've gotten out of bed.  Perhaps you get to work or school and as soon as you walk through the door, all the problems of the world come tumbling down on your head.  Perhaps, you dragged those problems from home.  Here it is, mid morning and you're already wanting to get away from everything.  These are the moments in which you must find the time, however brief, to center your day on Christ.  We must realize that He is our only refuge.  He is our strength.  He is our deliverer.  He will shepherd us through the day and bring us safely to its conclusion.  So if it's mid-morning and you've reached your wit's end already, just close your eyes, center yourself on the Lord, and pray, "Jesus Christ, my refuge and my strength, deliver me and keep me safe.  Amen."
