Psalm 91 – A Sign Created from Tornado Salvage

You may recall that last November, my cousin (and many others) lost her home to a tornado that hit my childhood hometown (view that post here).  When they sorted through the rubble, they set aside any wood they felt I may be able to use to create something with.

One piece I brought home was a portion of a side rail from her bed.  The wood was battered, but battered wood is lovely to make signs with, so I decided to make a sign to give to my cousin, as a reminder to her that God was surely her refuge and fortress during that terrible day.  The wood was oak, with lovely grain, so it distressed beautifully.

As a side note – just this week, the basement that saved her life was torn out, so the rebuilding of her new home can begin.  It isn’t expected to be finished until early next year, but I know she’ll be so happy to be settled again into a home of her own.

Psalm 91 is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible.  I wish I could make a sign with the entire chapter on it, but I hope the verse I used will bless her.  If you’ve never read the chapter, it truly is worth taking a moment to do so – it is beautiful.

Psalm 91

New King James Version (NKJV)

Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High

Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord“He is my refuge and my fortress;

My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler[a]

And from the perilous pestilence.

He shall cover you with His feathers,

And under His wings you shall take refuge;

His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,

Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,

Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,

And ten thousand at your right hand;

But it shall not come near you.

Only with your eyes shall you look,

And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lordwho is my refuge,

Even the Most High, your dwelling place,


No evil shall befall you,

Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;


For He shall give His angels charge over you,

To keep you in all your ways.


In their hands they shall bear you up,

Lest you dash your foot against a stone.


You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,

The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;

I will set him on high, because he has known My name.


He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;

will be with him in trouble;

I will deliver him and honor him.


With long life I will satisfy him,

And show him My salvation.”
