New International Version (NIV)
27 The eternal God is your refuge,
and underneath are the everlasting arms.
A loving father taught me that my Heavenly Father is also good and loving, one with strong arms that would hold me fast, a trustworthy God. It takes so little really, dads, to model God for your children. I have a clear memory of my very young self sitting on my Dad's lap in church and being enthralled by a father so talented at twiddling his thumbs. He could do that and so much more. It was a beautiful day today, reminding me of how Dad would say we were living in God's country. I do believe, though, that as long as I was in my father's household, I was in God's country indeed.
