This week on Facebook I asked an important question: how has God been your rock? I think it’s important to talk about God as our rock, as well as the people in our lives who have been a rock for us because there comes a time in your life (or several times) when you just can’t handle it all on your own. There’s no shame in admitting you can’t do it all and that you’re not perfect. In fact, doing so can make you a stronger, more confident, more fulfilled person because you’re no longer chasing things that you don’t need in your life.
But even for those of us who aren’t trying to do everything, sometimes life just is too much for us to handle alone. It’s why we have doctors and lawyers and police officers and farmers and home builders, among many others who make our lives work a little easier. It’s these people we turn to when we need some expertise that we don’t have or need some muscle that we don’t have. We put our trust in these men and women believing that they’ll be there to support us when we need them. Yes, they are human so sometimes they mess up just like we do, but overall we are able to rely on them in our times of need.
Unlike humans, God isn’t going to screw up or not be available or not be strong enough. God also goes with us and grows with us, there’s no stage of our lives we can reach that He won’t be able to help us through it because He is God. He’s the most reliable and trustworthy person in the world and beyond. He won’t let you down when you need Him most. Even if you don’t see an act of God (a big answer to your prayer), He may send someone or something your way to reassure you or help you get to the next step of your journey. How will God be your rock this week?
