My Rock

My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him, He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken.....Psalm 62:1-2

I find that when I read this verse, this is the picture that comes to my mind; a lighthouse--standing strong across the storms of life. A God that will help me withstand the waves that crash against me, the winds that blow and swirl around me, a steady light in the darkness calling me to His side.

I am praying for direction in my life, and I have been for some time. Last night, I received a phone call from a friend who has had a life altering circumstance occur in her life. So, now we are both praying for direction, praying for God's wisdom, praying for God's will to be known to both of us.

And, we will wait, just as the Psalmist did--wait expectantly upon our Lord to show the way. It is difficult to wait sometimes. But, having faith and trust in God--that He uses all circumstances for His good and His will--increases our steadfastness in Him.

Sometimes waiting is the hardest thing we can do. Take heart, for our Lord is pleased by your faith!
