In the quiet, we see ourselves for who we are despite the public image that we work diligently to craft. We like to appear as though we have it all together, that we are staying close to the shepherd when in fact we are wanderers. Sometimes we will wander only a little way, keeping the Rock that is refuge in sight while playing around the edges of the territory. The road back will be clear and straight.
In you, O Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness.
Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.
Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me. (Psalm 31:1-3)
Can you still see the Rock?
Grace and peace to you.
