Over the past year, I have been going through different phases of my life and I have been finding them interesting, tiring, adventurous, etc. some of them I understood and some of them I am still trying to get a grasp on. In all sincerity, inasmuch as I would love a large portion of the phases I am going through to go away, I would not trade it for anything… Ironic, I know but I guess that is how life could be.

Recently, I was talking to my friend’s dad whom I consider a great man in his sphere of influence. I was sharing with him what I have been going through and how sometimes I wish it could all go away. He talked to me and encouraged me. He told me how it’s okay to have dreams and sometimes it may seem like they are not coming to fruition but at the same time, I should just hold onto them and walk (work) along the path that is required of me and I will see it come to pass.

He said a lot of things that steadied my heart and He then quoted a Psalm I had heard just once in my life from Psalms 61:1-2.

Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
I had told myself that I was going to look for the passage but then I had forgotten and 3 days later, Dami sent me the passage and God started to talk to me about it. He told me that there is a way I could get so strong in myself that I become my own ‘rock’ and David in this Psalm never wanted to leave the ROCK that was his source…
God told me that my intellect, looks, skills, just about anything I have that makes me can become a rock unknowingly and in the process, I can forget my source.
Ever since then, that prayer has become a major prayer point for me… You should make it yours too… Dear Lord, lead us to the ROCK that is higher than US…
