The Rock

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Psalm 61:2

 

The recent flooding in Nashville, Tennessee and the surrounding communities has been devastating to many people.  I no longer live in Nashville, but it still feels like home.  My parents, three sisters, and many friends live in the Nashville area, so I have been receiving frequent updates.  The damage for my family was minimal, but “so MANY people have lost everything. Prayers are needed” (Missy Gaw).

As I have seen pictures of the flood destruction, I have thought of these words of Jesus: 

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.  But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash (Matthew 7:24-27).
