I remember as a kid learning the song The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rock at Sunday School. I loved the words and the actions that went with it. It only took me 45 years to really GET what it was saying. .
This passage came up today and I realized how important the WORD of God is to building my foundation. Just reading and being open to what he wants me to get out of it for today. We all will most definitely go through floods, storms, tornados, and devastations in our life. With our faith, nothing can truly break our foundation. Plus it makes it kind of nice knowing we are NEVER truly alone.
““These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock.”
