A Secret Place

I read this morning a King James translation of Psalm 91:1:  “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” 

I think for a long time about the secret place of the Most High.  The psalmist writes that in such a place, God “covers us with his feathers” and hides us “under his wings.”  Could anything be more lovely and warm, more safe and hidden? 

I ask God to help me make my dwelling in that secret place.  Even in the midst of chaos, noise, and uncertainty, there’s a secret place to dwell.  Even in suffering.  Even in loss and disappointment. 

There’s a secret place lined with feathers to rest the soul.
