Resting on the Rock

Unexpected news rocks the world. Certainty floats in the air, uncertain.

How do you pray for God’s will when you fear you won’t bear it? How do you pray for the person who wounded you, for the loved one that walked away, for the criminal that shattered your world?

How do you pray when the hurt is so deep there are no words? With your tears.

The one who created you hears your heart’s cry. He understands your  fears, your wounds, and your hopes. He doesn’t need your words as much as He desires your trust in Him. Rest in the one God, the one Lord over everything, and the one who holds the future in His hands.

He is good.

He is wise.

He is just.

He is able.

You can rest on the Rock.
