The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in him. -Nahum 1:7
God is good,
a hiding place in tough times.
He recognizes and welcomes
anyone looking for help (Nahum: 1:7 Msg)
The Lord is good,
A strength and stronghold in the day of trouble;
He knows [He recognizes, cares for, and understands fully] those who take refuge and trust in Him.
Putting these versions and a few others together and personalizing Nahum 1:7 a la Paula:
My Lord God is GOOD, totally and completely and absolutely good. When the tough times and the trouble comes, He’s my strength, my refuge to run to right away, my stronghold, my protection, my place of safety and shelter. He is THE #1 place for me to go. He welcomes me, knows me to the core, understands me fully, and cares for me. His Arms are wide open to me and He draws me in close and keeps me snuggled secure in His embrace as I trust Him .
