I love walking. I love walking in Arizona when I’m visiting my mom. Feeling blessed to be able to do that this week.
As we travel closer to Palm Sunday and Easter, I have been thinking a lot about rocks.
There are a lot of rocks in Arizona. I took the picture of the rocks on my walk the other day.
I wonder who put them there. I wonder why.
In the Bible, a pile of stones marked a special moment—a sign to remember. In the old hymn, Come Thou Fount, we sing: “Here I raise my Ebenezer, hither by Thy help I’m come.”
Do you know what that means? We aren’t singing about Scrooge. The verse is a thanks to God for his care in bringing us through or to something.
What has he brought you to…or through lately?
The stack of stones stand as a reminder to you, and a testimony to others that we have a God who goes with us (through whatever we’re facing) and brings us to where he needs and wants us to be.
Prayer: God, some of the things we’re facing seem difficult, confusing…okay—downright impossible. We can only get through with you. Help us. Sustain us. And we will give you thanks…and a testimony.
