Guard me as you would guard your own eyes. Hide me in the shadow of your wings.
~ Psalm 17:8 [NLT]
Here God is described as a “mother hen” in a way to paint a picture of tenderness and love. Helpless baby chicks flock to the wings of their mother when they are in need of safety, love, and warmth. We can run to God when we are in need of a safe and sweet embrace! He will keep you in the shadow of his powerful wings.
