From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
About This Image:
Yellowstone National Park is an interesting place with geysers and hot springs that can make you feel like you are at the ends of the earth; rock pinnacles and amazing waterfalls formed thousands of years ago yet still being sculpted today. From the north rim of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone you look down 1200 feet to this canyon formed by both geothermal activity and the Yellowstone river. There are two things that I tried to capture in this image and you will have to zoom in to see them both. The most obvious are the trees growing on the side of the canyon, strong and tall, but look a little ways above the trees to the top of the rock pinnacle and you will see an osprey nest. The trees grow strong on the canyon walls and are a refuge for the creatures of the canyon. The osprey built her nest in a mostly inaccessible place, a place of strength, a strong tower. Like King David, author of this psalm, we all seek refuge and safety when our hearts grow faint. And like David knew, the only place to find refuge is in the shelter of God's wings. Call to God and he will lead you to the rock that is higher than you.
