Just recently I found myself reading The Message translation of Psalm 55. I laughed right out loud when I came across these verses:
“Get me out of here on dove wings
I want some peace and quiet
I want a walk in the country
I want a cabin in the woods
I am desperate for a change
From rage and stormy weather”
I guess I am not alone in my desire to escape to a cabin in the woods! Although there are a few who choose a remote lifestyle (I have read plenty of books about them), most of us cannot leave our stressful lives or difficult circumstances behind to find a full time place of refuge in the wilderness. But a refuge does await us when we turn to our Lord for help. The Bible tells us that “God is our refuge and strength, our help in times of trouble.” When we turn all our problems over to God, and trust Him to care for us He provides a way of escape….. He is our “cabin in the woods”!
