He Will Build You A House.

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
