Standing Still and Strong

” Here on this solid rock I stand all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand.” ( Hymn)

Foundations.…what we are built from, where we came from, HOW we are built, all MATTER, right? Without foundations we would be perilously close to demise, like the little piggies house made of straw, (not a great idea I must add.) Or perhaps building a house on a hillside made of mud, oh my!

Foundations…. are what we TRUST to HOLD US UP, to carry us through, to right the wrong, to be assured and reassured that there is a guiding light, a guiding principle to see our way through the darkness.

Foundations are what is beneath the “seen.” Obscured from vision, most of the time, the depth of the foundation secures us ever more; and, even more importantly, what the foundation is made of, matters all as well.

IN times of uncertainty, or distress, what does your unseen foundation look like, what is it made of? Can it hold you up and encourage you, can you trust it to stay in place during a torrential rainstorm, will it provide the safety you need?

I leave you with this scripture about foundations to ponder throughout the coming week. Secure your foundation today! Trust He will hold you up, come what may, and above all else, show others the foundation you know to be true. When we have the mind like Christ, our hearts will follow, and so will our actions.

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord, your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

  1. This reminds me of the little song our kids used to sing, “The wise man built his house upon the rock”” …. and the rains came tumbling down, the house on the rock stood firm❤️
