if you hate cryptic posts....then stop here....this is going to be so cryptic that even I wont understand it!....but it has to be said...or taken out of the internal and put away so WHOEVER needs to can let it go.....wow---who even knows if that sentence makes sense?
rocks.....always used to denote sure foundations ....tough ....solid ....unmoving .....wise man built his house and all that.... (sorry---yes, i know----now you are singing it....and doing the hand gestures)...
but rocks can be chipped away and turn to gravel....which is dangerous....you will wipe out on gravel...and get the little stones imbedded in your knee...and that hurts....and it takes time to pick out each little piece of gravel (wait---that totally just changed my analogy---scrap that part)
so...when your rock foundation turns out to be gravel---or you have turned it into gravel....then you are left with unsure footing and precarious situations....and you feel unsafe.
relationships that appear good and healthy and mutually beneficial turn out to be tenuous....you thought they were rock solid----and maybe YOU were wrong....maybe the rocks were gravel all along! maybe the gravels were huddling together ---APPEARING TO BE A ROCK---but were afraid to tell you the truth---afraid you would LET LOOSE....AND we all know how scary that is!
wow---i feel better---how 'bout you? venting is always so cathartic.....whew.
12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.
