When life is hard and the world is cold
When the diagnosis comes out of the blue and slaps you square in the face
When you get sucker-punched by the very person you thought would always have your back
When friends/family/employers fail you
Who do you call?
What do you do?
Do you run to the bottle?
Do you make horrible plans to get even?
Do you complain and tear down?
Do you cry out in anger?
Do you dive into the depths of despair?
Do you run to the Rock?
Your High Tower
Your Daddy God
The ONE who loves you most!
He will never leave you
He won’t hurt you
He will walk with you through life’s storms
He will always calm the storm within you
And He might even calm the sea around you
When situations and circumstances seem to overwhelm
We need to keep our eyes on our Father’s face
Nothing else matters!
It seems people all around me are getting hit from every side
Marriages, children, illness, stress, the unknown
But over and over in my spirit I hear this old hymn
My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus’ blood and righteousness!
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name!
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand.
Our Hope; not in mankind, not in our job, not in the medical community and not in our spouse
Our Hope is in Christ!
Nothing else; nothing less
Psalm 144:2 NLT
He is my loving ally and my fortress, my tower of safety, my rescuer.
He is my shield, and I take refuge in Him. He makes the nations submit to me.
