Unless the LORD Builds the House…and If He didn’t?

Fredericksburg black and white w porch light (002)

Psalm 127: 1-2

Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.

It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for He gives to His beloved sleep.

Did you put the cart before the horse? Since you did, do you fret because you didn’t seek God fully while raising your little ones? Now it is late and they don’t listen or…maybe they are on their own and you have little (if any) influence.

Do you find yourself anxious over it all? That normally means guilt and regret about what you did or didn’t do…plus worry about how they are, or might be, living their lives. Anxious while raising them…anxious after they are raised. It can be all-consuming.

Are you young and starting a family…or will soon? Do you fret about that? Do you fear the mistakes you will make? Fear and anxiousness can keep you from seeking God as to the timing of starting your family.  Conversely, if a baby is on the way and that was not in your plan…it can rob you of the joy you should have in the journey.

Regrets and fears are common no matter what stage of life you are in! Chances are, you have some!

Read the verses  above…ask God to open your heart and mind to the truths.

Prayer is God’s way of allowing us to leave the porch light on and giving our  kids hope that it is on!

Prayer enables us to forgive and to anticipate rather than dread. It gives us hope for our loved-one’s future and for ours.

Prayer is God’s way of bringing heaven’s provision to our lives here on earth.

Pray…PRAY! Never give up…NEVER GIVE UP!!

! Thessalonians 5:16-18

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
