I believe in building everything on solid ground with a strong foundation that won't sink or crumble in a storm. This concept is essential for raising your children, making your home, and growing your faith. What does that exactly mean, and why is it important?
I refer to a scripture in the bible that talks about this very thing.
Matthew 7:24-27 says, ”Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall because it had been built on rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like the foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, the floods came, the winds blew and beat against his house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.
My parents taught me some important basic things that stayed with me throughout my life. Things like having faith, praying, being kind, being wise, and trusting your heart. Some of these simple lessons kept me landing on my feet no matter how far I veered off the path or how many mistakes I made. That solid ground created for me as a child is why I continue to inspire others to reach for their best and most beautifulife.
As a parent, I now find it necessary to lead my children by example more than ever. I want my kids to have a firm foundation so that I am confident that they will land on their feet no matter what direction they take in life or what choices they make. Regardless of what chapter of life we live, we need to continue creating a solid ground for our families, friendships, businesses, and beliefs. Always remember that when the foundation is firm, the storms don't matter.
Root your family in firm faith and understanding of the power of prayer. Create friendships with like-minded individuals who will stand with you and inspire you to be better. Make your business bulletproof by creating a need individuals will continue to support. And finally, keep your beliefs at the heart of everything you do to learn and grow in your spirituality.
My affirmation for you this week is:
"I will continue to keep the ground solid under all the important aspects of my life."
