So when we're outside, I always know where to find her. She is generally tucked securely behind my chair, resting in the shadow I cast. While there, she is content enough to rest and seems more or less undisturbed by her surroundings.
As I watched her the other day, I was reminded of my need and desire to stay in my Master's shadow. I long to find that peace and contentment that can only be found under the shadow of His wings. I seek to be less disturbed by the world around me, and I know that is only possible if I abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
Sometimes, I feel just like Tippy. "The world! It's all over me. Get it off!!!!" And so, just as she does, I seek shelter in the shadow. I guess my fat, little beagle is smarter than I give her credit for.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.- Psalm 91:1-2
