In the Shelter

These days it seems everywhere I look—or listen—I come across this notion of abide, my theme for 2016. Scripture is saturated with references to it and its related concepts. I finally started keeping some notes on the topic and they are quickly piling up. Perhaps by December I'll bring some semblance of order to my scribbles and share what I'm finding to be deeply meaningful.

Meanwhile, here is a musical meditation on Psalm 61. (I recently discovered Sherri Youngward's music and purchased her Scripture Songs, volumes 1 and 2, to accompany my road trip to Illinois last week. If you need more Bible and acoustic guitar in your life—and who doesn't?—get some for yourself.)
You have been a shelter for me,
A strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.
