A Firm Foundation Instead of a Slippery Slope

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been waking up with a song in my heart – the same song and the exact words, over and over. If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that music is one of the ways that God gives me hope and encouragement as I navigate this road littered with pieces of my broken heart. He’s been giving me songs in the night (Job 35:10) to encourage me.

If you’re in the pit of despair and can’t climb out of that dark hole of grief, I hope you will take a moment to let the words and music wash over you. My sincere hope is that it will bring peace, hope, and encouragement to you, even momentarily. God knows we need a firm foundation as we navigate the slippery slope of grief.

Christ is my firm foundation
The Rock on which I stand
When everything around me is shaken
I’ve never been more glad
That I put my faith in Jesus
‘Cause He’s never let me down

He’s faithful through generations
So why would He fail now?
He won’t

I’ve still got joy in chaos
I’ve got peace that makes no sense
So I won’t be going under
I’m not held by my own strength
‘Cause I’ve built my life on Jesus
He’s never let me down
He’s faithful in every season
So why would He fail now?
He won’t

No matter where you are in your grief journey, whether early days or years, there will always be times when you struggle with your grief.

How many of us have felt unsafe since grief knocked on our door? Who knew that grief felt so much like fear? But we are not alone and don’t have to suffer by ourselves.

Rain came and wind blew
But my house was built on You
I’m safe with You
I’m gonna make it through

Some days are better than others, and I’m ever grateful for those days. As I listened to the words of this song, I realized that even when the winds of life knock us down, if we build our lives on our firm foundation, Jesus, we won’t go under. We can hang on tight and reach out to the one holding us.
