Finding Peace Within

This summer has been a lot of relaxing by lakes and the ocean and just enjoying nature.  I realized this summer more than ever that i do enjoy being near water and water really does calm my soul.

My son planted this little branch near the lake the other day and i couldn’t help smiling because of course i think my little man is a genius.  I wanted to be that branch planted near the water.  I want to be that branch that continues to be nourished and nurtured at all times.  Allow the children to show you the way.

There was so much peace that i found in this picture.  The simplicity of it.  The smallest of who we are.  Compared to the greatness of God and what he can do for us.  It also reminded me that our problems are always small compared to the greatness of God.

I want to be planted in the greatness and enormity of God.  I want to be planted in his peace.

There is a lot of stuff going on in the world as of late and i am glad that i have some other place where i can go to find peace.

 

I Go To the Rock, Whitney Houston

Where do I go when there’s nobody else to turn to?
Who do I talk to when nobody wants to listen?
Who do I lean on when there’s no foundation stable?

I go to the rock
I know he’s able
I go to the rock

I go to the rock for my salvation
I go to the stone that the builders rejected
I run to the mountain and the mountain stands by me

When the Earth all around me is sinking sand
On Christ, the solid rock I stand
When I need a shelter, when I need a friend
I go to the rock

Where do I go, where do I go
When the storms of life are threatening?
Who do I turn to when those winds of sorrow blow?
And is there a refuge in the time of tribulation?

I go to the rock
I know He’s able
I go to the rock

I know He’s the rock for my salvation
I know He’s the stone that the builders rejected
I run to the mountain and the mountain stands by me

When the Earth all around me is sinking sand
On Christ, the solid rock I stand
When I need a shelter, when I need a friend
I go to the rock

I know He’s the rock for my salvation
I know He’s the stone that the builders rejected
I run to the mountain and the mountain stands by me

When the Earth all around me is sinking sand
On Christ, the solid rock I stand
When I need a shelter, when I need a friend
I go to the rock

I go to the rock
I go to the rock
I go to the rock
I go to the rock

You can go to the rock
You can go to the rock
You can go to the rock
You can go to the rock

I go to the rock
I go to the rock
I go to the rock
I go to the rock

I go to the rock
I go to the rock
I go to the rock
I go to the rock

When the Earth all around me is sinking sand
On Christ, the solid rock I stand
When I need a shelter, when I need a friend
I go to the rock
