Our hearts beat for those we love and care about. Our hearts beat for us to live in freedom of past mistakes and know that new beginnings happen. God speaks of building our house upon him. Our hearts guard by his love and knowledge of his word.
Psalm 127 New International Version (NIV)
A song of ascents. Of Solomon.
1 Unless the Lord builds the house,
the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the guards stand watch in vain.
2 In vain you rise early
and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat--
for he grants sleep to those he loves.
3 Children are a heritage from the Lord,
offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their opponents in court.
Unless the Lord builds the house
In my life, I have been angry at God. I didn't understand why somethings happen in my life. As I got older, I understood things better. I know that God has a plan, a promise and a future according to Jeremiah 29:11. Life begins to unfold in so many different ways. We must purpose time to pray and connect with God. God knows our hearts and the desires each of us have in life. Don't give up because your answer you are looking for, can be today.
Peace, love, joy, blessings and struggles. Someone asked me yesterday how did I make marriage work for 40 years. I simply told her that it's a lot of ups and downs. Don't focus on the little things of life. We change over time, but let us remember what connected us in the first place. She said she hope she finds a Mr. Right and stays married forever. This was a young girl I met in Disneyland. People watch our examples.
As we drive away from this hotel today, I find ministry happened over the last 14 days. I connected with stranger and prayed for them. I shared hope and blessings of a God who loves not only me but others. A new day is a chance to give out kindness at no cost. It's all about the freedom and I love that. Remember how your example can shine much further than you know. As we head home, pray safety for my family and myself. Thank you for taking time to read my blog and stay connected to me.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
