Jesus is My Refuge

Joshua 20:1-3

The Lord said to Joshua, "Now tell the Israelites to designate the cities of refuge, as I instructed Moses. Anyone who kills another person accidentally and unintentionally can run to one of these cities; they will be places of refuge from relatives seeking revenge for the person who was killed."

Lord God, you are my refuge! You are the one I run to when I am afraid. You are the one I run to when I have fallen and sinned. You welcome me with mercy, grace, and forgiveness. You help me to make a fresh start and get up and try again.

Thank you, Jesus, for giving your innocent life so that I can have a refuge to run to! Help me to tell others of this refuge! In Jesus' name, amen. <3

God is: my refuge
I am: safe when I'm in His arms
My purpose is: to tell others that they can have this same refuge to run to

A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Trust him, and he will help you.
