WFW: Solid Rock or Shifting Sand


"The foolish man built his house upon the sand
And the rain came tumbling down
The wise man built his house upon the rock
And the rain came tumbling down
The rain came down
And the floods came up
And the wise man's house stood firm."
I realize that this is an abridged version, but do you remember this song from Sunday School? I used to sing this song all the time growing up. When I saw this pic of my sweet guy building a sandcastle it made me think of that Sunday School song, but it also made me think of that Scripture too.
When you get married, you become a family. A lot of people seem to think you don't become a family until you have children, but I don't believe that. As a Christian, the circle of three that is created on your wedding day definitely creates a family.
As a married couple, rains are definitely going to come, floods are definitely going to come up. The difference is where your house is built. Is your house built on the Solid Rock or on the shifting sand?
Do you remember the end of that song?
The house on the sand went SPLAT!
The house on the ROCK stood FIRM!
That is where I want to keep building our house.
(P.S. For those of you who were praying yesterday.... Thank you so much. God is good. All the time!)

I loved that song. It's amazing the things that children's songs can actual teach us adults! Hope all is well!

I must have missed that song growing up. I do however know the scriptures it is based on. Our spiritual home is built on the rock. It has seen some wind and recieved some damages at times, but we got down on our knees with that spiritual tool belt(prayer, bible, and worship)and we made it all new again with our Lord. Great picture. I am going to look into that digital scrapbooking. Thanks for taking the time to share what God has laid on your heart today.

SO many don't realize the benefit of placing God at the center of the home and in relationships. I look forward (hopefully) to someday having the opportunity to honor God in that manner. :)
