“The LORD keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The LORD keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.”
– Psalm 121:7-8
If stones could talk, I bet they’d say
Just sit and listen to our day
The things we’ve seen, the people here
Could make you laugh and cry and cheer
History comes, history goes
But we have stood and never show
The stress, the rain, the wind, the woes
Because we are stones that time froze
We always will support each other
And be here for you to soon discover

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away [never-ending].” – Matthew 24:35
I am thinking of permanence, of unchanging, of persistent, of everlasting love this morning. Long after this earth has passed away, God and God alone will remain. The wonderful, beautiful Jesus Christ will be the shining city on the hill.
Love Him more…..that is the only thing that will bring my heart contentment and rest. Not the vacation, not the new clothes, not the fake “happy” smile. Just Him.
“Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today….The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” – Exodus 14:13-14
When I am afraid…..stand firm.
When I am in trouble, the Lord will rescue.
When I need a defender, I need to be still, and let Him fight for me.
Standing firm like this round tower. A tower of strength, refuge and protection during trouble.
“In You, O Lord, I have taken refuge. For You have been my hope, O Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth.” -Psalm 71:1,5
