Build My Life

November 4, 2016

Do you ever wonder how we’re supposed to do this thing called life? When we can’t seem to catch a break or don’t have a single clue what to do with our lives? 

Our culture is built upon success, fame, and working our lives away. We grow up thinking what do we want to do with our lives. As children we have endless possibilities wrapped up in our minds of what we could possibly be. For me I wanted to be a professional horseback rider, a writer, a veterinarian, an actress; the ideas were endless. Then we hit high school, or sometimes even junior high, and suddenly our dreams seem less possible. How terrifying is it that at thirteen our culture says we have to get a job as soon as possible just so we can make money and maybe be successful some day. 

That’s no way to build a life and God has a different idea for us anyway. 

What if we built our lives on the love of God? That’s it. Wholly devoting our entire lives to love and serve God. I think our lives would be really different. Even if we were going to a day job 40 hours a week, our lives would look a lot different than those striving to be rich and famous or even those trying to make ends meet. 

One of my favorite songs is called, "Build My Life" and it explains everything I’m basically trying to say.

“I will build my life upon your love, 
it is a firm foundation. 
I will put my trust in you alone"

You see if we build our lives upon the love of God then we have all of our hopes, dreams, and confidence inside of Him. It requires a lot of trust but God is constant where nothing in this world is constant. Culture, society and trends are constantly on the move but luckily our God “ the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)”. You see, we need stability in our lives. How many people build their lives upon their career, their marriage or even their “success” once they get it? Then if or when it is taken from them his or her world is completely shaken. 

I dont know about you but I cant afford to build my life upon anything but the love of God. He is a firm foundation and I will not be shaken. 

What will you build your life upon?
