Unless the Lord builds the house . . .
Such trouble I’m having this week, finding a subject to write about.
A little stressed because of a very busy last week and the time crunch, but trusting, praying, asking for something to write.
I reach for the Bible to search for what God might show me.
“Is not the LORD your God with you?
And has He not given you rest on every side?
Now set your heart and soul to seek the Lord your God.
Therefore arise and build the sanctuary of the Lord God . . .”
So what are we building, Lord?
A sanctuary, a sacred or holy place. A place of refuge.
We’re building a small sacred place, a place of refuge. A place to spend a few moments together in wonder over the Lord and His universe, His creation, His people, and much more. Setting the scenes every week through photos and word-stories to share God’s love with you. And hope you feel free to share your heart too.
I think of those who have generously written articles for me to post here on the blog.
Thoughts of the artisan/craftsman, Bezalel, light up my mind, and some of his story in Scripture.
“Then Moses called Bezalel and Aholiab, and every gifted artisan in whose heart the Lord had put wisdom, everyone whose heart was stirred, to come and do the work.” Exodus 36:2
And my mindset changes with a grin of realization that the Lord has just provided all I needed to share with you—
Whether you are a writer, a mom, a business owner, a caretaker, no matter what God has called you to do, if He has stirred your heart to do that work, He has put wisdom into you to accomplish it.
As Philippians 4:13 says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Through Him, just as when Moses called Bezalel to make the tabernacle beautiful, we can do what we were called to do.
We’ve climbed a little mountain and looked up and found a crevice of sanctuary. “Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way.” Dr. Suess
So if you find yourself stuck for a solution, consult the Master problem-solver and his Manual! ☺
The Lord has joy and laughter—and mountain climbing—ready for you!
