Message from Alicia Galindo, Human Resources Manager

Psalm 61:1-2

“Hear my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. 2 From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”

I have cried this prayer many times in my life. This verse has been a favorite of mine for some time now. When I feel alone or overwhelmed this is the verse I turn to. I learned a long time ago that when life hits us with the unexpected or unwelcome, we have only two choices to run from God or to run to God. I admit I have taken some detours in thinking I can handle things on my own and later realize I could have avoided heartache by going to God first.

King David cried out to God when he felt alone and overwhelmed, because he realized only God had the ability to help. When we are in the midst of a flood we surely need to get to higher ground. When our hearts are overwhelmed we need to rest in someone that is stronger than we are. That of course is the ALMIGHTY GOD, our ROCK and our FORTRESS!!


  1. AMEN! I too realize that I often run from God rather than run to Him in times of trouble and temptation. Thanks for the encouragement

  2. Alicia,

    Thanks for the reminder! It definitely is easier to run from God than run to God. Jonah is another example.

  3. Amen, Amen! Thanks for sharing.
