There's crisis in our family right now, and scandal and crises in our church, My house is in chaos and our garden is filled with weeds! And now our yard is filled with fallen trees from a recent storm.  We've spent time in court for our family and time in special member's meetings for our church and nothing is getting done at home.  I feel like there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide from the pain and chaos.  I thought, "I wish I could run away...  but I couldn't think of anywhere I could get away from the pain in my own heart.  That's when His quiet voice spoke to my heart with thoughts from Psalm 139.  

 " Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee."

The Crisis continues on all fronts, but the thought that He is there in each of them makes all the difference!
