Bread for the Journey

On this Rock I Stand..

Psalm 40:2..'He lifted me out of the mud and mire, He set my feet on a rock.'

I was reminded of this verse a few weeks ago when I stood on this rock that you see in this photo. I thought of how large and solid it was..but nothing compared to the solid rock that Christ is.

This chorus from a well known hymn says it all:
'On Christ the solid Rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand; all other ground is sinking sand.'
