Be my rock of refuge, my stronghold to give me safety; for you are my rock and fortress.
Advent is a great time to refocus in preparation for the joy of Christmas. One area of our lives that we should take a close look at is how much we're placing our trust in the Lord. Sometimes we can be tempted to put the trust we should be giving only to God, to things and other people. Doing so is dangerous to our spiritual life, orienting it away from following the will of our Creator. Misplaced trust can also lead to discouragement as the things and people we put our core trust in can fail us, whereas God cannot. It's a good thing to have confidence in people, but it's important they never take the place of our, "rock of refuge".
