Armida always helps clean up after Bible study!


“The eternal God is thy refuge.


A place to flee to, a sanctuary. An escape from misunderstanding, from yourself. You can get away from others into the quiet of your own being, but from yourself, from the sense of your failure, your weakness, your sins and shortcomings, whither can you flee?

To the Eternal God your refuge. Till in His Immensity you forget your smallness, meanness, limitations.

Till the relief of safety merges into Joy of appreciation of your refuge, and you absorb the Divine, and absorbing gain strength to conquer.




Where do I find sanctuary—not only from others but also from myself, from the sense of my own failures and shortcomings?


God, You are my sanctuary. Allow me to trustfully in You as my refuge, where I can gain strength to conquer.”
