Lead Me to the Rock

“Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for You have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.” Psalm 61:1-3

When your heart is overwhelmed, it’s easy to forget that God is there, waiting for you to turn to Him. Often we worry, stress and struggle with our problems, looking for solutions in our own power, and feeling faint of heart. What can we do? Who do we have to turn to? We feel alone and desperate, afraid to wake up and get out of bed. It would be easy to stay there and avoid our problems, but that doesn’t solve them.

When our heart is overwhelmed, when we feel like the world is against us, when we feel like giving up, we can run to God, who is always there for us. He’s our loving Father, who wraps us in loving arms and comforts us. He protects us from the enemy, and He is our rock when we falter.

Thank You God that He cares for each of us. We can place our trust in Him, knowing that even though the storm rages around us, we are safe in His love.

Pray in Times of Trouble

Jonah 2:7 “When my life was fainting away, I remembered the Lord, and my prayer came to you, into your holy temple.”
“Dear God, I pray that thru my journey in life that I follow Your will and not my own emotions. I want to do what You want me to do for my job, spouse, and lifestyle. Lead me and make me someone after your own heart. Amen.”
