Lead me to the Rock!

I am emotionally spent.  I have been for a couple days.  I am worn and weary, and have really struggled to put my finger on the exact reasons.  I feel overwhelmed.  I started to put and at the end of that sentence, but I realize that that is the perfect all-encompassing word.  OVERWHELMED.

We have had a rough week or two, but even as I type that phrase, I think that this is just normal for us.  It seems that God allows us to face lots of … well …stuff.

People often say that if something bad is going to happen, it is going to happen to us.  I mean, how many people do you know that have a shot up bus in their driveway.  I think that puts us in our own category. Stuff happens.

However, the one thing I KNOW.  I know deep down in my soul is that His grace is sufficient.  I know that I can rest in the fact that He will carry us.  He hasn’t let us down yet, and I know that He will not.

My favorite Psalm of all was put into a song that I learned while I was a child.

61 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah. 

When my heart is overwhelmed – Just like today -Lead me to the ROCK!

How amazing is it that I have  ROCK to run to?  A solid rock.  A foundation, and I can run to Him and He welcomes me with open arms.

So tonight, I dwell on his amazing grace.  I remember that trials will bring Him glory.  I am to count them JOY!  Well, I am FULL UP of JOY!  I should be seeping out of every pore.

Count it all joy, my brothers,[b] when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
