Thanks to a sudden winter storm, my children’s prayers were answered and we found ourselves snowed in this morning! That’s right – no class, no work…and two very restless kids. It turned out to be a fun family day, however, as we broke out the K’Nex and had a family-wide building tournament…
One flying helicopter-car, monster truck, and lopsided house later, we realized the entire morning had flown right by. I hadn’t played with building toys like this since I was a kid, and as I put the finishing touches on my flying car I couldn’t help but reflect on the many things we attempt to build in life: relationships, careers, resumes… Sometimes things go according to plan, and most of the time they don’t. The real secret, of course, is enlisting the help of the Master Builder:
“Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.” – Psalm 127:1
“For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.” – Hebrews 3:4
Whatever life projects you’re working on building right now, don’t forget to ask the First Architect for help and guidance. There’s no other way to find success!
