Clinging to the Rock

September 28, 2015

From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

Psalm 61:2 (NKJV)




Sunshine flashed for a second as the track opened to daylight before being submersed in a tunnel again. My hands had a death grip on the silver bar that was to keep me from flying out of the race car on Disney's Test Track. Why had I agreed to go on this ride with my husband? My knuckles turned white as I continued to cling and pray the ride would soon be over.


This memory flitted through my mind as I drove to a conference upstate this summer. The section of road I traveled had sheer rock walls on either side. As I passed a car, I noticed a tree growing out of a precipice. It stood tall, it's roots clinging to the rock face. The tree had obviously withstood the storms of life and still remained standing.



I couldn't help but think about my need to cling to God, the Rock. In the midst of struggles and trails and unforeseen things in my life, I can go to the one who loves me and knows me intimately. I need to seek my Rock every day, not just in the storms of life. I shouldn't wait until I'm overwhelmed by situations, but instead have a continual relationship with my Heavenly Father. I desire for others to see in me how I fasten myself to the Rock.


When have you been led to God and sought His face? This moment is the perfect time to cling to the Rock.
