Grounded In Love

Matthew 7:24-25
“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.”

What is the foundation on which you build your life? If it is material possessions, prestige, position, reputation or anything else human-made…there will come a time when it will all crumble and come tumbling down. Troubles, struggles and difficulties are part of life. But when Christ is your foundation…your life is built on an Eternal Love. Such a foundation cannot be achieved by going to church once a week, performing rituals and following rules. It happens not by achieving…but by allowing or surrendering to a Love that is unconditional. When you listen to the words of Jesus…ponder them…allow them to speak to your heart and then act on them…you will experience transformation. Then you will have an everlasting inner strength and peace amidst all of life’s storms.
