Overshadowed

Overshadowed by His Love
Covering Sheltered Place
Strong…. Secure…. Steadfastly Loved
Under Shaddai’s Grace

Overshadowed by His Love
Living Dwelling Place
Leaning….Trusting….Shielding Love
Wings of Loving Grace

Overshadowed by His Love
Resting Nesting Place
Tightly held….Intensely Loved
Arms of Loving Grace

(Reflections from Psalm 91)

Prayer: Father in heaven, lead us to Your sheltering place of love today.
Hold us close to your heart and let us feel the warmth of your embrace.

  5. your poem warmly reminds me of St. Patrick’s prayer.
    May Christ shield me today.
    Christ with me, Christ before me,
    Christ behind me,
    Christ in me, Christ beneath me,
    Christ above me,
    Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
    Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit,
    Christ when I stand,
    Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
    Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
    Christ in every eye that sees me,
    Christ in every ear that hears me.
    Amen

    • I’m grateful too, Susan. So glad God gives something to share and for sisters like you who show up to encourage. Yay…so glad you’re B.S. is coming along. I know what a challenge it can be to write your own study…but the things you learn in preparation are such nuggets of truth to share. Looking forward to your study.
