The Shadow Of God's Wings

The Shadow Of God's Wings
Is there a grief in your heart which groweth into a sore pain? Is there a shadow of a coming sorrow that you see drooping down over you? Remember it is the shadow of God's wing, and therefore it is a safe shadow. Creep closer under it, closer yet. Earth has nothing human so gentle as true mother-love; but God's wing that folds down over you then is gentler than even mother love; and you can never get out from beneath it. It holds you close to the gentle heart of the divine Father. You need never be afraid while resting there. In all the universe there is no harm that can come nigh you. From your eternal shelter you can look out with confidence, as from a window of heaven on the fury of earth's storms, and be at peace. The wildest of them cannot touch you in your pavilion.

Psalms 17:8: Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, (KJV)
Psalms 27:5: For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. (KJV)
Psalms 36:7-10: How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart. (KJV)
Psalms 57:1-3: Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me. He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth. (KJV)
Psalms 61:1-4: Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah. (KJV)
Psalms 63:7: Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. (KJV)
Isaiah 49:15-16: Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. (KJV)
Hebrews 13:5: I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (KJV)
