Thankful Tuesday- My Rock

I love you, Lord;
    you are my strength.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;
    my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.
He is my shield, the power that saves me,
    and my place of safety.
I called on the Lord, who is worthy of praise,
    and he saved me from my enemies.
Psalm 18:1-3

Ever been in a place in life where everything feels shaky? I have! I personally hate change. I could do the same thing every day for the rest of my life and be perfectly content! Sometimes when change comes, my mind is thrown into a state of worry or panic. I start questioning everything and everybody. I seem to lose my footing. 

This is not what the Lord wants for me. I don't have to like change, but I can be confident in the fact that God's got it; He knows, and He will always be constant for me. 

I love this passage from Psalm 18. God is:

My Strength- the one who makes me firm, resolute, hardens me to prevail*

My Rock-my security*

My Fortress-a place that has been fortified as to protect from attack*

My Shield- the one who defends me, covers me, and surrounds me*

and because He is and because He does...

He is "Worthy to Be Praised!"

No matter what change I am experiencing, I don't have to panic. I can rely on Him, who is constant, my never changing Rock and for that today, I am thankful!

Love that verse, and it's always a much needed reminder to rely on His strenght instead of our own. Just stumbled on your blog today. Enjoyed visiting!
