Rocks come in all shapes and sizes. They are found in parking lots, on mountaintops, in streams, in our backyards, you may even find a small one lodged in the bottom of your sneaker. If I were asked to describe a rock, I would say it symbolizes strength, is able to hold up other objects, is tough, and some are absolutely beautiful.
Our lives can be compared to rocks. Some days are smooth sailing while other days produce a rocky mess. We may find more strength in one particular day and maybe not so much the next. But just as rocks take many different forms and shapes, our lives see valleys and streams and obstacles and then our lives see mountaintops where we are able to see freedom and rejoice.
The beauty of life isn't just the "perfect" moments. It is being able to see how you react to difficult situations. God creates rocky messes because God also created rocks that give you the strength to keep on going and press on even in your weakest moments. Don't try to hide under a rock when things get bad, instead sit on top of the rock where you can find the support you need.
Always remember to look for the good in each day and you will find the strength to carry on and get through. ❤️ "The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold."
