It’s Monday! Here we go! Here’s your Monday Cup:

Therefore let all who are faithful
offer prayer to you;
at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters
shall not reach them.
You are a hiding place for me;
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with glad cries of deliverance. Selah

Psalm 32:6-7 (NRSV)

Do you feel like me this morning, like if you stop for one second this list of tasks and appointments will rush you away? Let’s take a moment to breathe and remember He Is Our Hiding Place: from the screaming two year old and the colicky baby and the gradeschooler who forgot to inform you about the science project that is due TODAY, from the piles of laundry and bills and worries. He Is Our Hiding Place. And in the midst of the chaos, He preserves us. He surrounds us. He shouts it out to us, over every inch of our distress. He shouts out over the waters that we are His, that We Are Spoken For.

Lord, help us to find You this week. Help us to hide in You. Teach us Your cries of deliverance, Your victory songs. Amen.
