Food for thought…Lead me to the Rock

he is our rock!

“Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer.  From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:1-2

We get overwhelmed, we struggle and we falter but there is One who knows our lives from beginning to end, who knows where we are going, who turns our sorrow into joy because His love for us is never changing.  He is the Rock that I want to build on, rely upon, and trust in.  Notice that David started out this verse in weeping, but he ends in trusting God.  God’s amazing power and promise are higher than we are, and David trusts in that! There is safety in our God, our Rock.

My friend Deb sent this to me, and I loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you….

An overwhelmed heart…..trial, pain, loneliness, anxiety, fear.  Our heart can become overwhelmed in a moment, or there can be a heavy shadow that constantly weighs us down.

God wants us to cry out to Him!! He alone can heal our brokenness and pain! He knows our beginning and end, nothing is a surprise to Him.  He is our Rock! Our firm foundation and hiding place in the midst of every storm.  He can heal our hurt and make us new!

Are you in one of life’s storms today? Then look to the Rock, let Him lead you, restore you, and make you whole.  Trust in His love and grace, trust in His perfect plans even when you can’t see the outcome.  Hold on to His promises even when your heart is overwhelmed.  Abiding in Him is where you’ll find peace and joy just as David did.
