A rock amidst sinking sands


rock in sinking sand

A tricky question.

How to find peace

with no certainty.

Or with almost no certainty

in location, occupation, residence.

So much up in the air at once.

Just as I feel I am regaining my footing and peace

another thing falls away into uncertainty.

But I guess

the peace

comes from the only certainty.

His presence is His promise.

The challenge

that digs deep into my bones

is to let that be enough.

Can it really be enough?

Back to the old chalkboard

to learn it deeper this time.



He really has to be my only rock now

as everything else

is truly sinking sands.

A hard and painful lesson to learn.

Gut wrenching.

But maybe this is the very lesson I’ll need

for the adventures ahead.

Attempting to seek his face,

not just his hand.

Gazing at Him

is the safest place to be.


Psalm 62:1-2

My soul finds rest in God ALONE, my salvation comes from him.

He ALONE is my rock and my salvation, he is my fortress, I shall never be shaken.
