Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!

God has put this word foundation in front of me over the last several months through sermons, several verses and devotionals. And then one day as if putting a puzzle together, the picture was clear. I had moved away from building a solid foundation. With all the trials my family had been going through I had started to try and reason through them myself. Of course when we do this, we make a bigger mess. He made it very clear that I need to check my foundation. I was not pleased with what I found. With my husband in construction and I a former Realtor working with the banks and giving them evaluations on repos that were not in good shape and had not been loved, I know now what I have to do.

First, I must work on my mind. This is always where the battle starts. So, I pictured one of the worst homes I have ever given an evaluation on. This home was so ran down and mold infested that I could only give it land value. Now what this tells the bank is that it needs to be torn down and a new one built in its place. This is what I must do with my thoughts and all of Satan's lies, that like the mold, had infested my mind. Then I pictured a big dumpster and started the tearing down process. I took all of my problems, the lies I was believing (mainly I was not good enough to serve God or I had to clean everything up before I could), all of my guilt from past failures, all of my hurts and any unforgiveness I had and throw them in this dumpster. When the dumpster was full and this house with no love was gone. I then would need to take my dumpster to the foot of the Cross, walk away and not look back.

Now I have a beautiful empty lot that I can build my new home on. This will start with the Solid Foundation (God's Word) and a Solid Cornerstone (Jesus). It will be full of love, grace, mercy and compassion. Brick by brick or thought by thought it will be built. It's door will be open to anyone who needs help. Prayer and praise will fill the rooms.

Beth Moore said it best in Believing God. We may believe in Him, but do we believe Him. I think this is hard sometimes when it comes to believing we are who He says we are. His child, a priest, an heir to the thrown, a member of a kingdom and the apple of His eye. If we start with believing this, then our hearts and our minds will truly be changed. We will start acting as humble nobles of a kingdom.

This is something I am still working on myself. Be careful when building your new home, because the thief will try and still your bricks.

Remember:

Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but
fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household,
built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ
Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.
-- Ephesians 2:19-20

Have a very blessed day,

Dora

Thank you so much for your wonderful words. You are such an encouragement. Yes, lets grow a garden this year and as we do we will pray for more workers.
