What would I do without the Lord,
the Rock beneath my feet that is unshakeable, immovable,
in all situations and circumstances?
My emotions soar when times are good
and plummet when tough times come.
That's why I need to sift past my own emotions,
why I must listen to the voice of God's Spirit and the truth of God's Word
no matter what my emotions may be telling me.
The saying, "follow your heart" is quite popular,
How many times has my own heart teamed up with my emotions and told me things like,
"you should just give up"?
In times like that God is my solid rock to stand on,
His Word is a standard by which I can judge what my emotions are telling me against rock solid truth.
How often has He protected me from disaster when I've listened to Him
instead of following my feelings wherever they my lead?
I'm so grateful for my Rock, my Fortress, my Savior and my Protector!
Also happily linking up with the lovely Lisha Epperson.
