How can I make a difference in a broken world?

Stained Glass Cross


When Martin Luther felt threatened by those seeking his life and seeking to destroy everything he risked his life for, he took refuge in this Psalm. God was his refuge and his strength. Though the entire earth should tremble and all that sustained life should be shaken, God would not be moved and Luther would cling to God.

When life gets frantic and our emotions shake us to our very foundations,we need to "be still" and know that the world is in God's hands. God has seen us through many storms in history and He will see us through any of the tempests which threaten us today.


"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy Name!"

Psalm 103:1
