Home Construction“They attacked me at a moment when I was in distress, but the LORD supported me” (Psalm 18:18 in the New Living Translation of the Holy Bible).

The strength of a building lies in its framework and foundation. The shell of wood, steel and concrete ensures the integrity and durability of the structure. In the same way, if Jesus Christ is the sure foundation and framework around which we have built our lives, when life’s storms and calamities threaten to overwhelm us, He is our strong support!

Prayer: In my moments of fear; through every pain, every tear; You have been my tower of refuge and strength. I lean on You, Lord!

Haunted eyes, a heavy heart, and feet that dread the next step. Life has a way of dragging us down.

We do not have to live very long before we discover that we do not have all the answers. Life is bigger than we are, and we need help!

“Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the ends of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy” (Psalm 61:1-3).

Prayer: When I talk to You, Lord, You lift my load and chase the storm clouds away. You bring peace to my troubled mind and calm my fears. You lift me above my circumstances so that I can walk in peace and joy again.

“From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I”
(Psalm 61:2 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible). When my world is in chaos and I’m weary with the constant day-to-day grind, I have a place I can hide until my heart is strong enough to continue on.

Prayer: Lord, you are my shelter, the stability that I so desperately need in my life. The strength that You offer me today is rock-solid.
