The Solid Rock

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths"

You may be feeling low right now due to the stock market or for some other reason, do not be discouraged. Remember "Faithful is He who has called you; who also will do it"

Do not be like those who trust in "Chariots and Horses"(things or people that appear solid and sound) but put your trust in the Lord for He has promised never to leave you nor forsake you.

Keep in mind that "those who put their trust in the Lord shall be like Mount Zion that cannot be moved, but abides forever". Remember that as the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about His people from this time forever more.

Remember this great Hymn:

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.


Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.


When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings. Wealth can never buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.


So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.


God Bless You
