It's hard to post about things right now because how do you explain "there is a lot of stuff going on right now but it's really too personal to share with the entire world wide web and I don't even know how to start and everything is up in the air"?
I guess that's how.
Today we read Matthew 7:24-27. Here is the text so you don't have to look it up:
24"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
We were talking about how our foundation is Christ and what it's like when storms come. It reminded me of 1998-1999. In about 3 months' time, S changed jobs, I got pregnant, my mother-in-law passed away, and we moved. We literally were receiving flowers from the funeral home while our home was being shown by realtors. It was a crazy, horrible period of time filled with highs and lows. Those are the storms this passage is talking about. Our house was shaken. Hard. But nothing...NOTHING happened to our foundation. Christ stood as firm as ever and we were thankful we had chose Him to build our lives on.
We are getting shaken right now. It doesn't feel good. BUT we know, as in times past, that Christ stands firm. Unmovable.
He is our solid rock.
