inspired :: Safe House.

Praise the Lord and sing loudly to Him – big songs of praise to Him. It’s only right – it’s so very good. He builds a beautiful house and invites all the discarded to join Him there. He holds those who are broken, He tends to each and every hurt they have. He points up. “See that star? and that one? And the one over there? I have named each and every one of them. Every single star. If I give attention to the stars, how much more will I lavish you with care.” He is amazing and mighty, and what He understands about each of us is impossible to comprehend. The place he lives is a safe place. Those who long for Him are brought inside. And He keeps the bad guys away.

And that’s why we can sing. Big songs with lots of thanks sung into them. We can grab whatever we can find and make happy noise. He cares for the biggest things and the smallest. He reaches over and pulls the clouds down like shades, He speaks rain to wash the earth and make her green. He prepares good food for all that live in His neighborhood. And He smiles when He sees everyone sitting on quilts, enjoying the day warmed by the light of His smile.

Oh thank the Lord for He is good. He builds strong fences to keep out the enemies, and He builds strong playgrounds for children with belly-laughs. His neighborhood is called Peace, and His street is called Blessing. And He sends out the invitation to all to come – it’s written in the sun and it’s written in the snow. It’s written on our hearts. It says, “come.”

Inspired by Psalm 147

About Ronne Rock


We're in this together, and I am for you. I secure road signs with a hammer of hope, and clear the debris so they can be seen. I am your encourager. I walk and keep walking. Cheer and keep cheering. I invest, dive deep, and cherish most the stories being written in the lives of women who believe restoration is a reality on earth as it is in heaven. God holds the pen in those stories, “That one - I hold her. And that one - she is My delight. And that one - never snatched away.”  I am a mouthpiece of celebration for women. Redemption is our song. You can find even more encouragement in  "For You, Love" the prayer journals that invite you to respond, and in Everbloom, a collection of stories from the Redbud Writers Guild. And be sure to pre-order your copy of One Woman Can Change the World: Reclaiming Your God-Designed Influence and Impact Right Where You Are. It publishes June 16, 2020 (Revell Publishing). I'm honored to be represented by Credo Communications.

    p.s. last night, too tired to pray, as i sank into ‘my chair’…i felt God smile at me. i almost shared it on facebook but thought…they’ll think i’m weird. God just reminded me, through you, He does in fact smile at us. xx
