When I was pregnant with John Henry, I remember feeling homeless. I wasn’t out on the street. My parents let me live with them and consume all of their popsicles. When John Henry’s dad walked out, I felt I had lost my protection, my security, my shelter, and my provision.
I called my dad, who was out of the country, and shared my thoughts with him. And, I’ll never forget his response.
“Darlin’, when I get home, I’m going to build you a house.”
And, so he did.
He called our very good friend and builder, Doug Wesley. Three months later, a house was built.
I spent my first night in that house built with love the day I brought John Henry home from the hospital. What I saw the moment I walked in is another blog. But, what I felt was protection, security, shelter, and provision.
Just like my earthly father provided these things for me, our Heavenly Father will do so much more. He will build you a house of safety, provision, security, forgiveness, hope, love, refuge….
Find your rest in Him. Trust in Him. He will build you a house.
Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust him. Psalm 91:1-2
