Happy Place

30 Jul

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis

When I was creating a graphic for my Monday church post I decided to use a beach theme. A lot of my extended family claim the beach as their happy place.

Today I listened to an author speaking about the power of fear. He said “don’t put your faith in fear.” I find myself doing that, facing a problem and my mind races ahead to the possible negative outcomes. I don’t have to do that. Hebrews 6:1 says:

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain.

Today I choose hope.

While I enjoy the beach, my happy place is wherever I am surrounded by mountains. Where is your happy place?

    My home is a happy place, my walk in the woods is happy too. The little church library makes me happy, and so do you.

    With the state of the world now, and the potential Muslim domination, I find myself in fear – not only for my country, but for my children and grands, and now great-grand. But then I remember the scripture, Psalm 27:1 – “The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” There is a classical sacred song with those words, and I sing it over and over to myself. That helps. Thank you for your post about fear.

      Isn’t it grand that we are given such words of comfort and encouragment? No matter how the world changes around us we have a firm anchor.

      I thought I had responded to your comment. WP is not always my friend. I remember singing a Psalm 27 praise chorus. It is definitely a fear banisher.
