Cave woman…

“You’re my cave to hide in, my cliff to climb. Be my safe leader, be my true mountain guide. Free me from hidden traps; I want to hide in you.” Psalm 31:3

imageA new fade is for men to have a “man cave.” This would be a place women are allowed by invitation only–or a woman might prefer to never enter. I have a cave, too, I call it my writer’s cave. When I’m deep into a writing project, no man, woman, or child would want to enter unless invited! I get into a mode, and the house could blow away and I wouldn’t notice until my computer died.

I love the way Peterson in The Message used the phrase, “You’re my cave to hide in, my cliff to climb.” If I were hiking in the mountains and a storm arose, I’d want to find a safe cave to take refuge, and I’d be happy to share it with God, who will help me climb out after the storm passes.

Lord, help me through the stormy days of my life; protect me and help me move on. Amen.
