Making Psalm 127 Personal

Monday, August 16, 2010  ::  

If I am trying to take over for God, everything I do is in vain. He has to have control of the pen.* He has to be the builder of my family. He has to be the builder of Second Mile, Moxie, Cord of Hope. He has to be the builder of my relationships.

I need to take care of myself, take time off, get enough sleep. God loves me and wants to take care of me.

My children are a reward, a rich inheritance to me. But, God also gives me so many other people in my life that are mothers, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons. Jesus, please help me love, nurture, and depend on them.

My kids will defend me. My Second Mile family will protect us. We will all stand strong together as a the enemy seeks to defeat us.

So beautiful and true, Angel. I'm still finishing the last week of the Beth Moore study, and yesterday was the beginning of Psalm 133, when she talked again about how you can't choose your family, how they are there to rub off your rough edges. My brother and I sure fought a lot, but I was always amazed at how he would defend me in public.
