Psalms 18:2- “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
Psalms 40:2- “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet upon a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”
Matthew 16:18- “And I tell you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.”
Romans 9:33- As it is written, “See, I lay in Zion a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall, and the one who trusts in Him will never be put to shame.”
1 Corinthians 10:3,4- “They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.”

THE ROCK

The Rock sits high upon the hill
We barely notice, it sits so still.
As we scan the horizon with our eyes,
We don’t take notice of where the Rock lies.

But wait, the darkness is all around;
It grows quiet and we don’t hear a sound.
All of a sudden, a great gust of wind,
And large drops of rain to bathe us in.

The storm grows quickly out of control;
Lightning pierces the sky and shakes our soul.
We run for cover, but there is none to fill
Our need, ‘til we come to the Rock on the hill.

As we reach that great rock and duck inside
The cleft, we see it’s a great place to hide.
The storm passes swiftly, fury in its’ path;
But, no greater shelter did we ever hath.

We crawl out now to see the sun beaming through
And go on our way, enjoying the view.
We never said “Thank you” to the Rock on the hill
But, if we find time tomorrow, we will.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Thank you for the nice reminder of the rock -- what a place to hide during the storm.
