Build- My Five Minute Friday

Building blocks, building towers

I watch children build

It takes them tinkering and experimenting

again and again to realize what does

and does not work

Bigger blocks need to be

 on the bottom

Smaller on top

If the foundation is weak or destroyed

forget it

Bridges and towers come tumbling down

Jesus prepared a foundation for us

May we build upon His name, His truth

And with His wisdom and strength

And let all other pieces fall where they will

The solid rock, all else shifting sand

Stand! Stand on the solid rock and

watch where He will take you

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13:13 NIV

  2. Beautiful words! If the foundation isn't sturdy it won't stand. Behind you in the #40 spot at FMF

  3. Love knowing it doesn't matter where the other blocks fall as long as He is our foundation. Visiting from FMF. Thanks for sharing & thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy Friday!

  4. Amen and Amen This brings a huge smile to me as I remember you growing up with your faith struggles as we all do. As long as He is our foundation and we are open to His plan He will lead us in the right way. Love you much!
