~ Being reminded of how important it is to send letters! T-Tot got a sweet one today from a lady who attended our Church for a while. It was very encouraging <3
~ Being reminded of how precious our lives are here on this earth! We should use them for good and to bring God glory!
~ Being reminded of how precious prayer is!

The Rock - A Word of Encouragement

Psalm 18:2 (ESV)
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. 

When life is crazy, busy, swirling, and chaotic, remember this:

When you find yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place, remember God is your rock, and He will get you through the hard place!

Psalm 94:22 (ESV)
But the Lord has become my stronghold,
    and my God the rock of my refuge.
