During my husband’s first deployment to Iraq, I felt so swamped by grief and fear that I would sometimes have to pull over to pray. I sought help for not making an idol of being terrified- giving it my attention, my energy, my time.
I frequently sang over and over, “On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.”
I didn’t need the rest of the words, but just the reminder that there is a place to stand, a place of support, refuge, and strength. Everything else is sinking sand- a force that opposes God, waiting to draw me under despair.
God- help me to stand in the strongholds and keep my faith in them. Strengthen me in faith and wisdom and courage to resist the pull of sinking sand. Amen.
