Genesis 8:9 But the dove could find nowhere to perch because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark.

Recently I have felt like that dove mentioned above in Genesis. I look for ways to perch or settle my being all around me, but I ultimately have to return to my Master, Our Lord. I have to pray. I have to read a devotional from my inbox from other Christian women. The world doesn’t seem to exactly have a place I can land.
Once I return to time in quiet with the Holy Spirit infusion, I feel more ready to fly out into the world and look again for a spot to perch. I sometimes don’t like the spot I find, but I press on to fly new places. I feel like the days’ pressures mount and only in moments of rest do I find renewal.
What about you? Where do you find rest? Renewal?
We have a safe place in Your presences. You can be our Ark. You can be our sanctuary. I don’t always pause. I’m working on it. It helps when I do. I pray that I find continued spaces in day for visits.
