November 16–Unless the LORD…

Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain.

Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stand guard in vain.

Psalm 127:1

Unless the LORD…

Quite a phrase to make me stop and think. Unless the LORD is the builder and protector, anything—everything I do really is in vain. It’s temporal and eventually completely unimportant.

Unless the LORD is the builder and protector of my life, I live my life in vain. This goes for everything I do and every relationship I have. This goes for any place and any person I put my heart, mind, energy, gifts, time, talents and finances into without the LORD being the builder and protector.

Unless the LORD is the builder and protector of all that I do and every relationship that I have, they are lacking in the eternal love, grace, truth and value that only the LORD can give.

Yet! When the LORD is the builder and protector of what I do and the relationships I have—Oh! The joy, the peace, the purpose, the hope, the strength they hold because of the love, grace, truth and value that our LORD has given to them.

Is the LORD the builder and protector of your life? Of ALL of your life? May we each invite the LORD to be so in every area and in every realationship of our lives!

Because in the LORD alone is eternity, eternal value and our eternal life!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
