Balancing Rock

Off the New England Highway in New South Wales is a place called Glen Innes. The area was evidently established by English, Welsh and Scots, each seeking a reminder of home. Close by is a remarkable sight. A large granite boulder appears to be precariously balancing on another. Australians are known for their plain-talking, and named it ‘Balancing Rock’. Though weighing many tonnes, this gigantic block of granite rests on a 300-millimetre point of its base. Though it looks liable to wobble and fall, it remains steady, despite centuries of storms and gales. 

Sometimes we Christians face terrifying tempests. Our support is invisible to the eye and it appears we shall be made to wobble and fall. Yet our foundation is strong, though our contact with it seems to be small. Even a little finger holding onto Christ is enough to safely anchor a soul. As Balancing Rock will continue to stand come what may, so even the faintest Christian leaning on Christ will never be shaken:

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms -Deuteronomy 33:27
