My Rock

Nov 11, 2020 | Writer's Blog | 0 comments

Depths of despair

Try to swallow me whole

Leading me down where I

Don’t want to go

Sickness, pain, death

Hearts filled with anger

Pulling so strong

A very real danger

It seems I’m alone

Darkness closing inside

The very breath I need 

Only He can supply

So lead me to the Rock

See it rise above the tide

He will never leave me

He will always be my guide

Even as waves

Rush over me still

I will stand on the Rock 

My Hope in His will

Powerful and unwavering 

Majestic and strong

My Rock rises above

All that seems wrong

He’s steady, unchanging

Firmly planted and secure

In Him will I stand

And through Him, endure 

“From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” (Psalm 61:2 NIV)

Father, from the depths of our souls, we cry out to You. Thank you that You always hear, and You make a way for us.  Be the solid Rock on which we stake our claims.  Let it be so!
