I posted this blog back on April 8, 2017. A friend liked it today and I reread it remembering that day so well. It seemed the perfect blog to repost with depression swarming around so many right now. I want you to know you are not alone. We may all be practicing social distancing, but Jesus is the Rock that never leaves you. *** Smiles again **** after reading this, I still collect rocks…
The demons of depression have been trying to rear their ugly heads lately so I have been a bit quiet as I fight to keep myself grounded. The last several weeks I have been drawn to the rocks as I take April out. Most would just see a rock, but I can’t help see their unique colors or glistening minerals shining through. I find myself picking them up and studying them (the ones I can pick up, some are much too large), intrigued by each one and the history it may offer. How did it come to be? Cripple Creek was once the site of a volcano, were any if these rocks formed then? Gold is still mined here. What are these glistening minerals I see in some of them? Who knew so many questions could rise from rocks?!
I woke with the song, “My Hope is Built on Nothing Less” on my heart and “On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; All other is sinking sand.” ringing through my spirit. He is our Rock. The winds of depression can whirl around me, the enemy can send demons to try to push me over the edge, but on Christ the solid rock I stand. I am grounded in Him. I may grow silent as I fight through the storm or I may cry out, but through it He sends a reminder that I’m not alone and neither are you. Rocks. smiles It hit me this morning, He’s been speaking to me through rocks! He is my rock, He is your rock. He’s been with me through this whole attack. smiles through the tears
Silly devil, on Christ the solid rock I sand! You and your minions are sinking back into the depths of hell because my God will always prevail. I have received so many messages from my precious sisters who are also under attack in the last couple of weeks. They are fighting battles of depression and sickness, but it’s on a greater level than they realize: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12 I claim victory right now over the those attacks, the enemy isn’t going to win. We stand on the the Rock of Jesus and His promises! We all need to pray in agreement on this and remember who we are in Jesus. Now straighten up your crown precious one and have a blessed day. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal 4/8/17
Ps I took the pics of this pink rock on April 1. I had no idea at the time what God was showing me. 😉
