I was walking along the lonely forest road – all the trees are now new-growth – the road I once walked looks totally different to where I walked with our dogs in the past. I peered into the distance.
I could see a white object beside the road. I wondered what it was. I longed to walk on and ‘check it out’. I simply did not feel like pushing myself. Once upon a time I would have run the extra meters. Little Char-Lee simply followed my example. She would turn back if I did.
‘Probably it’s just rubbish. Perhaps I should go and pick it up’.
The thoughts propelled me forward.
It turned out to be a rock.. A piece of pure white rock washed by recent rains. My picture above is a close- up.
This image shows it on the ground.
In the Old Testament story of Samuel …..1 Samuel 7:12 we are told he brought a rock to symbolize gratitude to God. The Ebenezer Rock ‘thus far God has been with us’ was his acknowledgment that victories and life were not about him but all about the Almighty One.
Thank You Lord for being ROCK and Saviour in 2021. .
Each afternoon now for me ,,,,, a Goal of rich Blessing as in His Grace and undeserved Enabling., I physically walk to that place and stop. Look upwards to Heaven and give thanks for being able to affirm.
Thus far God has been, and is WITH us.
Thank You Lord for ALL You are
