The Rock that is Higher than I

Psalm 61:1-8 (ESV)

Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer;  from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I,  for you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.  Let me dwell in your tent forever! Let me take refuge under the shelter of your wings!  For you, O God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.   Prolong the life of the king; may his years endure to all generations!  May he be enthroned forever before God; appoint steadfast love and faithfulness to watch over him!  So will I ever sing praises to your name, as I perform my vows day after day.

    • Thanks for the encouragement, Matt. Between the daily busyness of life (work, family, etc.) and the new responsibilities I have taken on in my church, I know my posts will be sporadic, but I hope to get something out more often than I have been lately, even if it is something simple.

      Dr. D’s AT thru-hike has certainly been an inspiration! It even has my wife pondering the idea of us doing some section hiking on the AT someday when time will allow.
