Word Filled Wednesday ~ El Shadday

I'm glad it's Word-Filled Wednesday today and I'm linking up with Christy of Critty Joy.

It's been a crazy week for me. I wasn't even online yesterday which is very unusual for me. I live in the desert of Arizona and right now I feel like I'm in the need of some refreshment. Where do I turn?

I've been studying Ann Spangler's "Praying the Names of God" with Jill of Forever N Ever N Always. It's interesting that our focus for this week is God as El Shadday.

I snapped this photo on one of my long walks in the desert. Since we've had more rain than usual for Phoenix, the desert is beautiful.

When I'm weary and in need of refreshment I need to remember that I can rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

El Shadday is my refuge and my fortress in times of trouble and uncertainty. When I don't know where He will lead me next, I need to ...trust and obey.

I'm thankful for El Shadday on this Word-Filled Wednesday.
