all the pretty things 

Have you ever considered the structural details that hold up the floor you walk on or the roof over your head? If you’re like me, you probably skip right to all the pretty things and pay little to no attention to the very foundation that will support them.

Whether it interests me or not to know the structural engineering of a house, the fact still remains that it does matter. Wisdom and experience have proven how valuable details such as flooring and ceiling joists are in the overall stability.

When installed correctly, joists provide three valuable benefits:

  1. Safety
  2. Stability
  3. Strength

I don’t know about you, but those are benefits that I’d like to know exist in the makeup of my house!

Often in my journey as a Christian I pay more attention to all the pretty things that can distract, waylay and confuse me. All the while the very foundation that serves as the core stability of my faith is really what is holding me up day in and day out.

When I seek God with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding or the understanding of those around me, I reap three valuable benefits:

  1. Safety because of Him
  2. Stability in Him
  3. Strength thru Him

Those are benefits I know I need in order to successfully build my home in Him!
