Where do you find refuge in the struggles of life?

If a comic book were written about your life, what would be your superhero name? Omni Mom? Mega Bucks? Deflecto?
None of us are invincible. Try as we might to be superheros, all of us are vulnerable to the realities of life. Omni Mom needs sleep. Mega Bucks needs humility. Deflecto needs new armor.
Like the bat house in this picture, we need a place of refuge. We’re mortal. We’re human. We’re sinful.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.”
Psalm 46:1-3 English Standard Version
Refuge is not found in our superhero status but in the one whose cape was a cross, whose power was death and whose victory is life. I pray that you find your cave in Jesus Christ.
