Troubled Waters – Beloved Women – June 6, 2023
"My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me." - Psalm 63:8 NIV
I spotted a rock near the edge of the rapids and noticed a small tree clinging to it. Turbulent waters raced past the tree as it held on tightly. The stone and the sapling seemed like the current would engulf it at any moment, washing it away forever. I watched earnestly and felt relieved to be on firm ground instead of clinging to a rock in a raging river.
Just like the river rock I witnessed, Jesus is our rock. We can cling to Him in times of trouble. Unlike the stone I observed, Jesus will never get overtaken by the raging waters. He provides us a firm foundation against any problems life gives us. Sometimes, He may calm the waters, but other times He will soothe our hearts. Either way, the safest place to be during a storm, is with our roots sunk deep into the rock of our salvation. Cling to Jesus.
Dear Heavenly Father, you are my rock and my strength. When troubles arise, help me to cling to you only. Calm my heart and strengthen my faith to trust in you all the days of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
