In the span of 2 hours Saturday night, I spoke with 2 different people walking in valleys so low that you wouldn't believe me if I told you about them. Yet, I've been bummed all day because there is a 60% chance of rain that is keeping me from a day at Disney with Micah. Seriously?!?! Babies are diagnosed with cancer and marriages are torn apart by addiction and babies are living apart from their mommies and I'm focused on a day of rain that ruins my otherwise fairly perfect life.
I've been constantly drawn to the book of Psalms lately. I'm obsessed. I can't read enough. I'm underlining and highlighting like crazy. When asked to speak, I'm pulling things from there. But, when sorrow comes, it is easy to get overwhelmed. When I look at my friends who are struggling, I want to fix it. My mind is fixated all week long on these things. It's hard!
But, He is the Solid Rock on which I stand. He is the Solid Rock on which they stand. He is the Cornerstone. Life changed...He did not. I rest in that.
When all around my soul gives way
He THEN is all my hope and stay
