I’m thinking of a song that goes like this…
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?
Of course, the next line is – I go to the Rock. When Whitney Houston wrote this song she knew where to take every problem and frustration of our lives.
When we are having problems with the whys of life, with the endless irritations and annoyances God says, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest..” (Matthew 11:28) He knows that this life is hard. He knows we don’t have the answers. But, He also knows our hearts. He can and will answer when we go to Him.
I have a comfy chair in my office where I read His Word and contemplate each morning. There is a window from which I can see His beautiful creation. I look out at the beauty of His creation, the blue sky, the trees and fields that are different each season, and I quiet my mind. I let His presence flow over me. Sometimes I read His Word. Sometimes I pray. Sometimes I focus on all He’s given and done for me.
In these times of blessed stillness and knowing the uncertainties, irritations, and annoyances disappear. I am at peace!
Blessings to you and yours!

Love that you point us to the ROCK! In Moses’ song, spoken near the end of the wanderings, near his death, he speaks of God saying, “He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just.” (Deuteronomy 32:4)
Amen! Rocks are solid as is our God! Blessings! Marie
Beautiful reflection, I too love the blessed stillness, and the beauty of God’s creation 😊
The one thing I was most excited about when I retired was having more God-time and more quiet-time. I got both at the same time. What a blessing!
