Joshua Tree

For we are strangers before Thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers:
our days on the earth are as a shadow... 1Chronicles 29:15


For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are as a shadow… Job 8:9


Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Psalm 23:4


How precious is Thy lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Thy wings. Psalm 36:7



He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High shall abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!” Psalm 91:1-2



For Thou hast been a defense for the helpless, a strength to the needy in his distress,
a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
Like heat in a drought, Thou dost subdue the uproar of aliens;
Like heat by the shadow of a cloud, the song of the ruthless is silenced. Isaiah 25:4-5



Let no one act as your judge in regard to food or drink or in respect to a festival or a new moon
or a Sabbath day – things which are a mere shadow of what is to come;
but the substance belongs to Christ… If then you have been raised up with Christ,
keep seeking the things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. Colossians 2:16-17, 3:1-2

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel … because of the tender mercy of our God,
with which the Sunrise from on high shall visit us,
to shine upon them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace. Luke 1:68, 78-79
