The tide is high.
Yesterday as I was transporting $750 worth of food to feed a crowd of 400 on Thursday, I backed into a retaining wall at the school.
Never even saw it. But I heard it.
To the tune of $2100.
I have heard so many quotes and scriptures over the last week relating to having faith and overcoming adversity. Even yesterday I was thinking that something big and bad must be coming. And I don't mean a dent in the Cadi-wagon either. It's just a car.
I think it can get worse. Way worse. And I think maybe I just want a break instead.
Helaman said, "And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." (Helaman 5:12)
I think I've seen a few mighty winds in my day and I'm positive I've yet to see more. But I'm promised that I cannot fail if I build myself upon the rock....His rock.
So, I'll keep clinging to the rock. I'm afraid if I let go, the tide will pull me away.
