God is the Rock of My Existence

Today is my birthday so I now must report an increase of one in my age, though really it’s just one more day.  And I must also report I am “getting up there” in years.  I notice that pain in my low back more often than I would like.  I am heavier than I would like to be partly because I am not as active as I could and should be.  I just recently switched my political allegiance.  And the weather is so unpredictable lately.

All these changes are like waves pushing me to go with the current events of my life.

I am surprised and pleased to realize that at the same time my faith in God is getting stronger.  I find my hold on life is weakening.  I have had some strong trusting God experiences which I cherish.   The more the waves are pounding, the more I am holding on to the rock of my faith….God.

Part of my morning devotion for my birthday was this:

1   For God alone my soul waits in silence;
          from him comes my salvation.
2   He alone is my rock and my salvation,
          my fortress; I shall never be shaken.  (Psalm 62:1-2 NRSV)

How perfect.
