Greetings, friends!

I'm Meg! I am a native Dallasite, a pre-K teacher (I know, I'm crazy), and a lover of all beautiful things. Some favorites include: worship music, Broadway musicals (which I admittedly sing along to), antiques, fall colors, snow, ocean air, and cool weather (so I'm not looking forward to our upcoming heat!).

I serve at the Welcome Center and with the Single Adults ministry.  I also serve as a leader in our new Refuge ministry, a ministry of hope for the chronically ill and caregivers.

Read on and let's seek refuge together through this comforting psalm.

THE BATTLEFIELD IN LIFE: WHERE IS IT COMING FROM TODAY?

Psalm 57

Let Your Glory Be over All the Earth

To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam [1] of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.

57:1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
for in you my soul takes refuge;
in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
till the storms of destruction pass by.
I cry out to God Most High,
to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
He will send from heaven and save me;
he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah
God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!

My soul is in the midst of lions;
I lie down amid fiery beasts—
the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth!

They set a net for my steps;
my soul was bowed down.
They dug a pit in my way,
but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah
My heart is steadfast, O God,
my heart is steadfast!
I will sing and make melody!
Awake, my glory! [2]
Awake, O harp and lyre!
I will awake the dawn!
I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
10 For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.

11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth! (ESV)
