Under My Wings

I call on you, O God, for you will answer me;
give ear to me and hear my prayer.
Show the wonder of your great love,
you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings

-Psalm 17:6-8, The Holy Bible

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sometimes when my life gets hectic and crazy, I like to imagine myself as a little child, resting in the shadow of God's wings. To remind myself that no matter how painful life is, he's holding me tight in his arms.

Some of you may not know I'm a Christian. Although I take my faith very seriously, I often find it hard to express that. I don't want to shove my faith onto other people, and I don't want to be the stereotypical Christian. However, sometimes I feel that by avoiding conversation about something that's so important to me, I'm hiding away a piece of myself. I don't want to live my life under a mask. I really do believe Jesus died and rose again to save us from our sins. If you feel differently, that's fine. I'm just trying to be honest with people.

P.S.- Sorry the wing texture is kind of lame. If anyone has some tips they'd be appreciated.
