The Rock

"When my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I am." ~Psalm 61:2

This is one of my favourite verses. I blogged with this verse & photo when I first started blogging. You can re-read that entry here.

My heart is feeling a little overwhelmed & heavy today. All is well in our world but there is so much going on in the world that the sadness feels like it is bogging me down today and so I am pouring through the book of Psalms trying to find my favourite uplifting verses.

I like thinking of God as our Solid Rock & uplifter! It has been a few years since I've been rock climbing or mountain climbing but the analogies are still fresh in my mind when I read these verses just as if I was clinging to the edge of the cliff at that moment!

I know life lately has felt like we were just clinging to the edge, unsure of whether we should go up or down, waiting on God's direction, and really wanting to just let go and praying He'll catch us before we hit 'rock bottom'.

Other times it feels like we really are at the bottom & its a mess down there. Gooey sinful, sorrowful mess and we feel trapped, reaching up, wanting to see the sun again. Luckily we have help from The Son.

"For in the time of trouble... He shall set me high upon a rock, and now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me." ~Psalm 27:5-6

"He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps." ~Psalm 40:2

Despite our small faith, God is faithful!

What's your favourite ROCK verse?


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm glad you found me ♥♥♥

    I have always wanted to try mountain climbing - but Kansas is too flat and the fake walls scare me!

    Your post touched me ~ it is nice to hear others go thru the same things I do to.

  2. Becky,

    Although this isn't a verse, I like it and thought I would share it w/ you.~G

  3. Well it been a while since I had blooged too. I just started back this year after a two year absence. Glad to see you are blogging again. Hope you remember me. Today my rock verse is "Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us." —Psalm 62:8
