Not Shaken or Moved
My daughter, Briar (two years old), came to see me last night, which is only the second time I’ve seen her since being here. We had such a sweet time! She was here for two hours; I am amazed she lasted that long in this unfamiliar place. We colored, listened to princess music, shared sweet goodies, and talked about our days. It felt like just a normal night in our living room! After she left I fell peacefully asleep reflecting on the sweet time we had.
One particular moment stuck with me and stayed a focus into my morning. We had a special time singing a sweet little Bible song: “The wise man built his house upon the rock . . .” (hand motions and all).
As I reflected on that sweet moment, God gave me His truthful promises. “Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken” (Psalm 62:5–6 NKJV).
It will rain trials and tribulations, and times of uncertainty may begin to flood in, but knowing the Contractor of my foundation and the security I have in Him, I will not be shaken or moved, for in Him I can stand firm. I can thrive, for in my weakness He is made strong.
