When My Heart is Overwhelmed

When my heart is overwhelmed lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 
Psalm 61:2

Today feels so tender. My social media feed is filled with people who are relieved and pleased with the outcome of the election, and also with friends who are feeling broken hearted and afraid. Everyone is looking at a country divided and wondering how exactly we move forward and what the future holds. It's all got me feeling a bit soul bruised.

This verse has been stuck in my head all morning. Though my heart is overwhelmed, I have a rock to run to that is higher than I. God is in control! I pray all our elected officials receive humility and wisdom in the months and years to come.
