Last night’s party was quite good. Chocolate brownies, oh wait, they were for someone’s husband! There was a chocolate (or was it vanilla?) frozen frappe being passed around with multiple straws. There was joy. There was grief. There was a migraine. There was kudos and congrats. There was a new smartphone owner, oh wait, that was me. Yes, I am overwhelmed, but give me some time and a techie granddaughter and I’ll be just fine! Everyone was having such a good time, our host Kate Motaung, had to get up on a chair and yell the word prompt for this week’s Five Minute Friday free write. I love, love, love this word:
We are all builders – every.single.one.of.us.
That’s right. If you breathe, you are building something. Problem is some aren’t building things that will last.
Every good building begins with?
A plan and a good foundation.
If those two things aren’t in place? The structure will eventually crumble.
How many of us sang the Sunday School song, “the wise man builds his house upon the rock.” Remember? When the rains came, and oh they will come, his house stood firm. But the foolish man built his on the sand and when the rains arrived? It went S P L A T and washed away.
Spiritually speaking, and of course…WE HAVE TO GO THERE…
God has a plan for every one of us. A very good plan. A plan to prosper us and give us hope and a future. (here)
And, God has already furnished a foundation. His son, Jesus Christ, THE ROCK OF AGES. (here)
You just cannot beat following HIS PLAN on HIS FOUNDATION.
A life and legacy that will last into eternity.
Last night as I left the FMF party I was confident of what I was going to write but the Lord gave different words this morning – He is never wrong! But I do want to share one of my favorite scriptures, it is especially for women builders!
The wise woman builds her house [on a foundation of godly precepts, and her household thrives],
But the foolish one [who lacks spiritual insight] tears it down with her own hands [by ignoring godly principles]. Proverbs 14.1(AMP)
