“I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it.It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built.” Luke 6:47-48
Over the past couple of days I’ve had a million thoughts run ragged in my mind. Confusion being a big factor. An it just feels “weird or strange” feeling being the only way to describe it. In a way I’ve felt like my voice had grew silent. Maybe not on the outside and verbally as much as the voice in my head. It doesn’t even know what to say. As I read this scripture it sank in. I will stand firm in disaster because I am built by Christ. I’ve felt God promising me many things during this. It’s as if now more than ever that I’ve seen babies everywhere, people getting engaged and married, or even cute elderly women. It’s easy for me now when I see things like this to become sad and depressed. Thinking about things I will have to experience differently than I thought. But yesterday I looked at it all differently. I realized God has been making me promises. He’s been showing me that I still have purpose and a future. That there are still things to look forward to in life. That because I am built firm by Him I can and will make it through this and live out the promises He has made to me. I love that I am seeing what He’s been doing because it has sparked something in me that I needed— hope.
