Word Filled Wednesday ~ My Rock

It's Word Filled Wednesday when we share God's Word through a photo combined with a verse from the Bible.

I took this photo of the Lone Cypress along 17 Mile Drive.  Carmel, California is one of my favorite places to visit.  I love to see the  beauty of God's creation.  The ocean waves crash against the rocks.  It's a beautiful sight to see.

This photo brought to mind the 2 Samuel verse.  God is my rock and my fortress.  I'm learning to take refuge in Him ...through the storms of life.

Visit Internet Cafe Devotions for more Word Filled Wednesday.

Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

  19. A great photo with that wonderful verse, my friend. Love you ~

  20. Yes...when we build our lives upon Him, we will stand firm, just like the Cypress Tree at Carmel. "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." (Matthew 7:24-25)

    Thanks for the great word for today!

    Living for Him, Joan

  21. Awesome and encouraging photo and BIble verses! Thank you so much for a sweet smile! :)

  22. More-and-more I travel with a camera at the ready. Not only do I never know when I might want to capture an event or person in photo-form, but I just never know when a life-lesson is going to show up in nature.

    I love the scene you've captured. I love it even more that you connected it to God's word. So precious.


  23. Love the photo!! And yes, God is our rock. He will not be moved!!

    We haven't been to Carmel lately, but I do love to drive down the 17 mile drive. It's so beautiful!!

  24. I love how there is a tree, green and thriving, on top of this solid rock, just as the Lord, our Rock and Fortress, fills us with life. I love how this verse and photo go together, and that it is a favorite place of yours, Debbie.

    In joy,

  25. I just love this verse! It is so encouraging and a comfort to know these words to be true. I love your photo.

  26. The verse went well with this great shot! It reminded me of my family and I's fun time camping at Central Coast, visiting Carmel also and I have the same shot. I found out you could hiked down there to actually see the Lone Cypress tree up close but we didn't have enough time as it was getting late to go back to the campground. We had a blast! God bless.

  27. You KNOW that I love Carmel Debbie... it's my old California roots showing through! There just isn't a prettier place.

    And the verse... knowing that He is there, always! That knowledge provides our peace of mind and heart... that He never changes!

    Hugs sister, love you!

  28. Goregous! Our rock, Our shelter in the storm...

  29. This is one of my favorite scriptures...the picture is perfect!

  30. Amen Debbie ~ HE is the Only place to run, to cling to, to find shelter no matter what the season!

    Love and blessings

  34. Wonderful verse for a great photo. My family traveled through Carmel last summer (but it was too foggy the day we went) but I still fell in love with Carmel. My husband took me back so I could enjoy a few days there with some sunshine and I love it even more!
