Have you ever tried to run in the sand? For professional runners, sand running is one of the most revered workouts, because it is ridiculously difficult to run a race while sinking into the ground! Sometimes, life can feel that way. Maybe for you it feels like every step leads to more and more discouragement, making it feel painful or impossible to make any progress. That dearly cherished hymn speaks to the heart of this issue: "On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand." Romans 10:10 reminds us our salvation only comes through Christ; any and all other things we might try to lean on eventually end in disappointment. He alone is our Rock in whom we can always trust! Praise God for His steadfast love!
