I don’t know who I am
But I know who I should be
All my life I have tried… I’ve really tried
Thought I could do this on my own
I didn’t know that my Identity is in Jesus
And He alone can Tell me who I am
If only I had listened to the still strong voice
I would have had everything and more…
So many times in life we due to our foolhardiness, we stumble and fall. Like a little child whose mother told not to go near the fire but went due to its attractive glare…and got burnt.
So many times in my life I have relied on my wisdom, thus building my house on a foundation of sand like the foolish builder in Jesus’s Parable.
26And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
I built my house on the sand, I knew the right things but twisted them to fit my selfish wishes. The strong winds of life came, time came and washed the sand from under my feet. I like the great man was washed out into the cold.
I should have built my house on the rock, that rock of ages, that rock that would never fall. If time and the strong winds of life came, because I built my house of a rock I wouldn’t have been washed out.
They often say, “Only a fool says, had I known ” and Definitely I was a fool. However grace came like the light, and cut through my situation, extended a hand out to pull me out. I was given a chance.
If you are reading this and you are about to build, I wish you would learn from me and build on a solid foundation. Sure it might seem hard and stressful having to lay foundation on the rock, in the long run however you would be glad you did. This Rock I am talking about is Jesus, Build on Jesus, and when the storms come, they would be unable to wash you away.
