"For God alone my soul waits in silence for my hope is from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be shaken."
I can not honestly say that I have reached the point in my faith journey where I can not be shaken. I wish I could, but that would be hiding from reality. Last night and this morning I have to accept the fact that I have been once again shaken to my core. I wait and I place my hope in God, but I do so, I think, not so much that I trust him, but out of the sense there is no where else to go. At the moment nothing makes sense to me. There is too much pain not only in my life but in the lives of so many friends. There is so much uncertainty. There is so much despair that never seems to end. Even when you think it has it simply comes back in another form. Today I will live with this verse. I will try my best to carry it with me through the activities of the day. I will work to make it my own: to get to the place where I can declare with confidence that God alone is my rock and my salvation; I shall not be shaken!
