My Castle

Be thou my stronghold, whereunto I may alway resort: thou hast promised to help me, for thou art my house of defence, and my castle.

- Psalm 71:2 (BCP)

God is our castle, our defender, our fortress. Right?

But life can become a tangled mess, obscuring our view of God.

Let us remain secure in knowing that He truly is there, standing firm throughout it all.


O God, my strength and fortitude, of force I must love thee; thou art my castle and defense, in my necessity.[1]


"In all our thoughts and actions we ought to remember the presence of God, and to count as lost any time in which we don't think of Him." // St. Bernard of Clairvaux


Does your view of God seem clear or obscured right now? Ask Him to make His presence known in a strong way.
