We’re posting an occasional series that’s rather different to our usual educational posts. It will cover quotes that may help when you’re facing adversity or finding your new normal.
You may have discovered your DVT is linked to a diagnosis of cancer, you may have suffered a life-threatening PE or heart attack. Whatever the reason, many of our readers go through difficult times.
We’re posting on the weekends, so if you’re not interested you can just ignore these posts, but if you find them helpful you’ll have a little more time for reflection.
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Psalm 61 :2b
Even if you’re not part of the Jewish or Christian faith, if you believe in any Higher Power, this could be helpful.
David wrote the words and music of this psalm when he was heart-broken. He probably wrote it while mourning the death of his son Absalom who had rebelled against him. Absalom tried to kill David and take his throne. David was forced into exile and hunted by his own army. The nation was torn apart.
We may not be able to identify with all that David experienced, but can probably identify with the out-pouring of sorrow and need for refuge and trust in a God who understands so much more than us.
