From its beginning, Psalm 91 advises people to put their trust in God as a “refuge and a fortress.” These are far more than words for Robert and his wife of 24 years, Chalice.
“The psalm speaks to how God puts you in a secret dwelling place and protects you from all hurt, harm and danger,” Robert said. “That’s the gist of the scripture. We live by that foundation.”
In late March, Robert and Chalice found they needed that foundation more than ever, as the novel coronavirus threatened to sweep the ground from under them. With blurring speed, the virus attacked, bringing Robert to the brink of death. That he survived is a tribute to the medical providers who cared for him and to his own determination, the strength of his family and the faith that sustains them.
