except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
~ Psalm 127:1
Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. ~ Psalm 127:1
The Lord knows those times that I pace or call a friend with my problems before getting down on my knees. Those many times when I’m failing to rest–when I’m failing to lean. Those times when I take my eyes off the Savior to look down at the water beneath me while that sinking feeling sets in. His grace carries me through as I learn to lean a little more every day. And while I do, I’m learning the importance of building that place where I can run to for shelter.
We have stop and ask ourselves why sometime:
Why are we raising these children? So they’ll grow up to be good citizens, or faithful warriors in the kingdom of God?
Why do we enter into marriage? So that we have life-long companion or so that we might reflect the covenant of our Lord Jesus Christ and His faithful Bride?
Why do we keep a good house? So that our family will be proud of us, or so that we may serve others as unto the Lord?
And so you might ask, can’t we have both? The answer is absolutely, and I pray that you will!
