I go to the Rock

Where do I go? When there's no one else to turn to?
Who do I talk to? When no one wants to listen?
Who do I lean on? When there's no foundation stable?
I go to the Rock.
I know He's able.
I go to the Rock.

Wow! What more can describe my life right now than the words of this song?

So much has happened since this year began. My sister, Rachel, is still alive but on hospice. I have spent the last month going back and forth between IL and TN. I have been sick twice and more down than I remember ever being before. My son, Nathan, totalled our second vehicle. Of course, this was the vehicle we only had liability insurance on so we are now in desperate need of another car... without the fiances to get one.

But through all of these circumstances, I have not lost sight of the truth that "This too shall pass" I know that because I am unable to do this on my own God will take care of it. He is my heavenly Father and my provider. Even when I was so down I could not look up, I never forgot that He was there and I would come out.

I honestly don't know how people make it without God in their lives.

I am so thankful that He is in control. Nothing I have experienced in these short weeks caught Him by surprise. Praise God for His amazing grace!

You are in my prayers especially concerning your sister! God is our strength and comfort, and I know that He is with you every step. We are blessed beyond measure to have Him with us, in the valleys and mountain tops.

Hugs,
