He set the earth on its foundations;
it can never be moved.
“God laid the foundations of the earth with perfect thoroughness (104, 5). He has made everything firm and permanent and imposed boundaries which limit each things operation.”
― C.S. Lewis, Reflections on the Psalms

What is the base of your foundation, your strength, your bedrock of existence?
Firm and steady. . .
loose and shifting?
To what are you bound, fettered, tethered?
What is it that keeps you grounded, secure, rooted?
Is it something solid and strong
Is it something soft and unreliable?
Earthly kingdoms rise and fall.
Man soars then quickly descends.
Bigger, better, faster, farther in the constant continuum.
Until there is no more. . .
Where will you put your trust?
Where will you look for permanence and continuity?
What shall be your everlasting?
On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
The Solid Rock
