"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." Matthew 5:14-15

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46

Construction - Word Nerd Blog Hop


I did a quick search of the word 'build' on Biblegateway.com and came up with 226 references. Here are two that are the most significant to me.

Unless the Lord builds a house,
its builders labor over it in vain;
unless the Lord watches over a city,
the watchman stays alert in vain.
In vain you get up early and stay up late,
working hard to have enough food—
yes, He gives sleep to the one He loves.

Psalm 127:1-2

How are you doing with allowing the Lord to build your house?

Every wise woman builds her house,
but a foolish one tears it down with her own hands.

Proverbs 14:1

Are you a wise woman or a foolish one?

How goes the construction of your house? Are you trying to be in charge or are you allowing God to have the reins?

I'm more of the 'tear down my own house' type. I need to work on more positive 'thinking' about what blessings I have instead of negative.
blessings,
