Trusting in the Rock

I love that we serve a faithful God. His faithfulness doesn't depend on our faithfulness, it only depends on Him. That is such a comfort, especially in times where we feel like we have little control over what is happening in our lives.

Tomorrow morning our family leaves on the first extended "Just our family" vacation we have have taken since our first daughter was born. We are so excited to have some time together.

A lot has been happening lately in our lives with camps, trips, and many other things. While I won't be able to post quite as much until we get back on June 15th, I hope to post a good long update on what God has been doing in our lives on Monday of next week. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend of worship wherever that might be. I'll leave you with part of a Psalm that has been very encouraging to me lately. This is just a portion, but of course I would recommend the entire thing.

From Psalm 18 (ESV)

I love you, O Lord, my strength. 2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. 3 I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies. 4  The cords of death encompassed me; the torrents of destruction assailed me; 5  the cords of Sheol entangled me; the snares of death confronted me. 6  In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.
46 The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation— 47 the God who gave me vengeance and subdued peoples under me, 48 who delivered me from my enemies; yes, you exalted me above those who rose against me; you rescued me from the man of violence. 49  For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations, and sing to your name. 50 Great salvation he brings to his king, and shows steadfast love to his anointed, to David and his offspring forever.
