The Rock

I SAMUEL 2:2

"There is no one holy like the LORD;
       there is no one besides you;
       there is no Rock like our God.

There it was..

Right in front of me...

See my toes to the left? 

I was walking in our backyard, sharing a little of my heartache with a friend on the phone when right there in front of me,

God spoke.

Do you see what I saw?

I saw "love."

I saw God's love in a rock...The Lord of the Universe was reminding me that He truly is the Rock beneath my feet.  My foundation.  On Him I stand.  Even when I stub my toe and am hurt by things around me.  Even when I trip on things that I should have seen coming and stumble to the weaknesses of my fleshly emotions.  Even when I slip and totally fall...showing my absolute ugliness and desperate need for a Savior. july 12 160 HE'S STILL MY ROCK...

july 12 161

and HE'S THERE IN THE MIDST OF ALL OF THE PEBBLES OF THIS WORLD'S TROUBLES AND TRIALS AND STRESSES AND DIFFUCULTIES. 

THIS SIMPLE HEART-SHAPED ROCK BROUGHT ME TO MY KNEES.

Praying that the Rock of our salvation will always bring us to our knees as well,

Hey, Tammy! This post was amazing! I love how God shows His glory in the big things and in the small ones--that rock had better be on you kitchen window sill!

I think we are planning on running/slogging/walking fast!! around 6:30. That way, we'll have time to shower and EAT!!! You do as much or as little as you want to, sweet girl! Yay! We'll have fun. I am so looking forward to meeting you. I read your blog months ago and prayed for your precious Nick. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers :).

I'll holler back at you when I find out for sure!!

Hugs!
Susan
