UNDER THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY

AS I PICKED UP MY PEN TO WORSHIP MY LORD, HE CARRIED ME IN THE SPIRIT AND STARTED DIRECTING MY HAND AND MY MIND. HE STARTED BY GUIDING ME TO HIS ROYAL MANUSCRIPT:

"IN THE LORD I TAKE REFUGE, HOW THEN CAN YOU SAY TO ME FLEE LIKE A BIRD TO YOUR MOUNTAIN." PSALMS 11:1 (NIV)

IN THE SCRIPTURES, I REMEMBERED THAT IT STATES:

"KEEP ME AS THE APPLE OF YOUR EYE; HIDE ME IN THE SHADOW OF YOUR WINGS"

PSALMS 17:8 (NIV)

MY LORD WANTED ME TO DEAL WITH THE GUILT WHICH HAD SECRETLY DRIVEN ME FROM WITHIN. I RAN FOR NEARLY TWENTY YEARS BEFORE I CAME TO THIS POINT IN MY LIFE. I WANTED MATTHEW 5:8 TO BE TRUE:

"BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART, FOR THEY WILL SEE GOD." MATTHEW 5:8 (NIV)

OH, HOW MY HEART WANTED TO SEE GOD AND BE COMFORTED! I ALSO KNEW I NEEDED TO FIND OUT HOW TO MOURN THE LOSS F SOME TWENTY YEARS; AND MY LORD'S WORD SAYS:
