(It wouldn't have been nearly as pretty as the picture to the right, but I only had my yard to work with.)
Sometimes it can feel like that, though, can't it? Jagged and hard. Unyielding. Even a boulder in our path. Life can be tough.
But then God started speaking His version on rocks...
His cross. His strength. And He continued driving the point home for anything that stood like a rock on my path other than Him.
“Is not my word like fire,” declares the , “and like a hammer that breaks a rock in pieces?" Jeremiah 23:29
See, there's no rock on our paths that God cannot handle. There's no roughness in our lives that God cannot soften. There's nothing He cannot break or bend...if it needs breaking and bending--and yes, that includes in our hearts and wills too.
But here's the other thing about rocks. They can be used as a beautiful picture of remembrance.
In fact, I have a pile of them myself from moments God's done some pretty amazing things in my life. And that's the thing about satan, he always wants to take things of beauty and wrap them in his lies. But God's truth always prevails.
And if you have one, I'd love to hear your favorite verse for going through a time of struggle or even what you may keep as your own personal "stone of remembrance".
