God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult….
“Be still and know that I am God!
I am exalted among the nations; I am exalted in the earth.”
The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge.
(Psalm 46: 1-3, 10-11)
In a dark corner of the Abbey at Iona, I took a picture of this cross and a bench with these words.
It would have been easy to miss it.
Sometimes it is when life is most dark and out of control that we somehow sense God’s presence. Somehow we hear God’s calming voice urging us to be still…to trust…and not be afraid.
