I just received a tragic, heartbreaking, yet hopeful email from a reader.
It was one of those moments that reveals all that is counterfeit.
The music I was listening to became vapid. The blog post I was writing… lame. The Twitter and Facebook conversations… empty.
I was at Starbucks and it just made me want to go home and be with my family.
After the truth in the email blew away the fluff in my life, it left me thinking this…
Every Building Needs A Foundation
It is our job as believers to lay a foundation in our lives on which God can build a place of hope for others. We are the church. He wants to love through us; live through us.Â
The first level of that foundation is simply His presence.
We NEED Him to love like Him.
In light of all the New Year’s resolutions we’ve set, I posted this question on Twitter and Facebook earlier:
If we haven’t developed the habit of spending time with God daily, what’s the point of all our other resolutions?
A little too blunt? Maybe. But I’m feeling blunt this morning. Because sometimes life (or death) demands it.
So, whatever plans you have this week, add 5 minutes with God. Say thanks to Him, read a Psalm, pray for your kids, listen to what He has to say.
Because He loves you. Because you need Him. Because they need Him.
Build a foundation, my friends. All else is sinking sand.
An email reminded me of that today…Leave a Comment
