The Solid Rock

As I shared my anxious thoughts with my mother, she responded, "Your family will be fine. You've built your home on a rock...not on the sand."

The truth in her words touched my heart with immediate comfort.

How could I have forgotten...

My husband and I have built our home on Jesus Christ. We stand on Him.

..."And the 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." (Jesus) Matthew 7:25

I thought about these things in church this morning as we sang...

On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand
All other ground is sinking sand..
.

Take courage, dear friends, our homes do not sit on the sand. They are built on a rock. And we will come through all of life's storms intact. We will overcome...because we have built our lives on Jesus Christ..the solid rock!

Beautiful reminder!

Recently God reminded me of the same thing. We've been going through a rough time with our youngest son, (he's smart but has a language disorder and has trouble interacting and gets very frustrated, acting out).

I remember thinking, "I feel like I'm grasping at the wind with what to do."

But then God reminded me of the same thing. "Susan, you're standing on the solid rock of Jesus. You're on firm ground."

It's so good to trust in Jesus, isn't it my friend? No sinking with him! And what a wonderful Mom (and friend) you have to encourage you.

Its nice to be reminded of the truths we've always known. Even on rock we can still get a 'sinking feeling' so God speaks His wisdom & reminders to us from those around us!

Amen and Amen! The wisdom of mothers is a wonderful thing, isn't it? And the rock solid foundation of our faith!

Thanks for visiting my neighborhood today!
