Some no longer listen to or watch the news, saying it is so bad. This world is filled with natural disaster like the Nepal earthquakes, strife in the Middle East. Political unrest and oppression are causing thousands to flee as refugees seeking asylum in safer countries. Many lose their lives in the attempt. The dictionary defines refugee as “one who flees in search of refuge”, denoting people seeking protection and a safe haven. But though, in this life, we suffer tragedies, loneliness and disappointment, how wonderful that there is a Refuge. Millions have who have Christ in their lives draw comfort from the Bible promise, “God is our Refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble. Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.” This is a reality because when we are His, in life or in death, God holds us in His hand and takes care of us.
