Solid-rock faith allows us to believe that despite the chaos of the present moment, God does reign. In spite of how we feel, you truly matter to a God of love. The brightest moment in history was God’s resurrection and triumph over death. “The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer.” (Psa.18:3) Christ, the rock, is our sure hope.
