Rock of Ages

"Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I." 
Psalm 61:2

These days in So. Cal., and in my neck of the woods, a "rolling stone" rocks the news--but I don't think it's got the "moves like Jaggar." 

A rock weighing in at 340 tons, by dark of night makes a move through the Southland to its new "digs", the Los Angeles Co. Museum of Art (LACMA). Found in a quarry in Riverside Co., one will be able to view it this summer at the museum; an exhibit called "Levitated Mass", created by artist Michael Heizner 


The media contributes to the "rock and road show." Traveling approximately 8 miles a night, the sideline groupies do not take this for granite (pun intended), following its progress each night on the local news. 

David, our Biblical editorialist also reported on a Rock. Follow his journey as you read the Psalms.

The Rock I call on doesn't move. It is not greatly shaken. My Rock is my strength, my refuge, my fortress (Psalm 18:2, 71:3).

He is my Rock and my salvation.(Psalm 62:6).

I remember, He is my Rock, my Redeemer (Psalm 78:35).

Its amazing to watch a rock of such great mass and the vehicle used to transport it, move a great distance.

Even more amazing; to allow THE ROCK to move in and through you on your own journey through the dark, creating in you, a museum piece worthy of His love. 

Lord, you are the steadfast Rock on whom I cling. Blessed be the Lord, my Rock. Amen

P.S. As I write this, the LACMA rock is less than a mile from my house,  waiting patiently until 11:00 tonight to start the move again. I saw it on my way home from work today.  


  1. Love these scriptures and I'm SO thankful that HE is our rock and fortress! Fantastic post!

  2. Taking the every-day and making the connection with the Almighty, you always make me take time and think about all that is around me!

  3. Hi,
    I saw this leviathan right by your house. It was massive.

    I enjoyed the references… the Lord is my Rock and my Redeemer. Amen!

  4. Good, very good.

    When I saw this on the news last night, I was thinking "...if this rock will levitate over visitors, why don't they just levitate it over to the destination site?" Guess they can't really make it levitate. (haha)
