He Has Me Covered

I tend to be a very visual person, so I find myself always looking at things around me, I notice even the most minute details…..and I think on those things. That is just how I am. The views always capture my attention, allowing me calmness and contemplation in an otherwise hectic life. With that said, this past week I was on my way back from the barn, crossing through newly fallen snow. Even though it was bitterly cold, and the wind stung my face, I took a moment and gazed over the back pasture, where the fence touches the horizon. The gray winter sky buried itself in the snow making it difficult to discern which was which. Yesterday evening, I was walking the dogs after dinner, the village water tower was silhouetted against the burning pinks and purples of a frigid January sunset. The night, here, is filled with a million stars, they are a cold and crisp sparkle on a quiet ebony night. Although I try to describe the views, I feel I can’t do it justice. This area allows me to see God’s hand in everything. I spend many of my moments enjoying His creativity.

The thought crossed my mind this week, that I never could have imagined all of this. My life, like most, has had many twists and turns. There were times when figurative doors slammed shut on what I thought was the next chapter in my story. If someone had told me ten years ago, where I would be, what I would be doing, I would have never guessed I’d be living in rural Ohio, in the middle of what was at one time a farm field. I had no idea of the man I would meet and marry, after five years of widowhood. I could not have known the friends I’d make, the lives that would intersect with mine. I am reminded that God is the Author and Finisher of my story. He alone knows the future, be it by one minute or decades, or for all eternity. My life is literally in His hands.

I know that God loves me. I know that His plans are perfect. I know that He always has my best interest at heart, and I am His beloved. I am able to relax, and know that He has me covered…..and I can rest in that knowledge.

He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. Psalm 91:4

  1. “I am reminded that God is the Author and Finisher of my story. He alone knows the future, be it by one minute or decades, or for all eternity. My life is literally in His hands” Amen! These words hit home and filled with me hope and expectation of seeing positive change. I’m someone who had a bad beginning in life, but by the grace of God I’m determined to have a great finish. Our times are in His hands and we experience the most rest, peace and joy when we surrender every area of our lives to Him. Thank you, Dawn! 🙂 x
