Building Your House on a Rock – I wonder, how do people get past their pain when they don’t have the hope of salvation? How do they face hardship, when they can’t see there’s more to this life than this world? Where is their strength in the storm?
The beautiful thing about faith is having Someone to lean on. Knowing that God is our strength when we’re weak. Knowing that He provides. Knowing we’re safe in His arms through each storm.
And there will be storms. The rain will fall, the floods will rise, and the wind will blow, as trials threaten to tear down our hope. When those days come, will you be standing, or will you fall down? Will you lose hope when you need it the most, or are you building wisely today?
The ones building wisely are those who are both hearing God’s Word and obeying His Word. They’re the ones building their house on a rock. They’re the ones we see standing firm in a storm.

Tilling the Soil
Read Matthew 7:16-27.
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
(Matthew 7:24-27, KJV)

Darlene Schacht and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada where the summers are beautiful and the winters are cold. Together they’ve come to learn that relationships aren’t always easy, but that marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a treasure worth fighting for.
She began her publishing journey about twelve years ago when she pioneered one of the first online magazines for Christian women, known at the time as “Christian Women Online Magazine.” After three years, Darlene left CWO to blog as a solo author at Time-Warp Wife Ministries.
It was also during this transition that she worked alongside actress Candace Cameron Bure to write the NYT Best-Selling book, Reshaping it All: Motivation for Spiritual and Physical Fitness. Reshaping it All was the winner of both the 2011 USA Best Book Awards and the 2012 Christian Reading Retailers Choice Awards.
Author of more than 15 books, Darlene continues to write and to minister to her readers through her blog at TimeWarpWife.com.
