This note is for all of you who have hard places in your life. I guess, from time-to-time, that would be all of us. Consider Genesis 28:10-11
10 Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Haran. 11 When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. NIV
Like us, Jacob made a lot of mistakes in his life, but I love his heart. When Jacob came to a place where all he could find was a field and some rocks, he used a rock as a pillow. What a wonderful spirit, to be able to take the hard places and make a pillow out of them. Make that your goal, when you come to a hard day, if all you have is a rock to lay your head on, then use the rock and go on with your life.
