This is my first time doing Lisa Jo’s writing prompt, and it was hard. Five minutes just flew by and I barely wrote a thing! Plus, I have to confess, I used a bit more time. But I loved it. Great exercise to write and dig deep inside. Todays word: Glue.
Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain… I love this scripture. It always bring me back to the basics of life. What am I toiling for? And why?
As life begins to change again, as life tends to do when you think you’ve figure it out, I need to ask myself who is building all of this. God in his wisdom and grace, or me in my pride?
His word to hold this family together, or my word to get through the days?
His word to encourage us and build us up, or my word to get the kids to obey?
His word to love and forgive, or my word to make sure my point of view is understood?
While I get pulled in a million directions, His glue keeps me together. Glue.
