In the sweetness of our backyard, I was reminded of our firm foundation.
My favorite moments are when God shows me a simple spiritual truth through the precious innocence and play of my girls.
The other afternoon, I was watching my girls swing in the backyard. They love to play “Surfing” where they swing from side to side, nearly crashing into the tree. They get excited about doing flips on the rings and playing “Lava” where they can’t touch the ground with their feet.
A nervous Mommy watches while they fearlessly enjoy their backyard.
Life is always turning and flipping and swinging back and forth.
Sometimes, it feels like we are barely hanging on.
Our grip seems to slip and our feet tend to drag as life flips us around one more time… no firm foundation to be found.
When our feet are firmly grounded in the Word of God and we remain steadfast on His path for our lives, we can KNOW that we are being held safely in His care. We know we are on HIS firm foundation.
We can trust His ever present help in times of trouble.
We can stand strong in His strength knowing that NOTHING happens that He isn’t aware of or prepared for.
He has a plan.
He has a purpose.
He is our firm foundation.
Our strong place in the midst of an ever shifting world.
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand.
“How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!
What more can He say than to you He hath said,
To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?”
