A stable foundation

By human nature, we forget. 

Sometimes what we fail to remember can lead us into difficult situations, leaving us feeling panic-stricken and vulnerable. Sometimes everything reaches such a devastation that it appears to be crumbling to the ground in a huge pile of rubble at our very feet, and we watch the walls and solid foundations we so firmly built over our lifetime disintegrate. Fragments of careers, opportunities, relationships, routines, all scattered across the ground; what are you to do now? 

That is a very good question.

There are two clear options; either fall with them, or build them back up, starting from scratch. And by human nature, we have a beautifully strong determination to not give in and to fight for our survival, which is an intentional quality that our creator gave to us, knowing that sometimes, everything changes and you have to start all over again. Loss of identity becomes apparent after a while, and inside of yourself it can feel almost homeless. Now where can a vulnerable and pained soul seek refuge? 

All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings. You feed them from the abundance of your own house, letting them drink from your river of delights. For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see. – psalm 36:7-9

For new foundations to be built, the old must be completely removed for an even surface; but this time around, you have the creator of heaven and earth to guide you. Now this’ll be interesting. You may wonder, how do you successfully build your wall back up again without it coming crashing down? The strongest element I believe in is SCRIPTURE. The whole How-to guide for life is literally contained within one book. It can fit inside the palm of your hand. It can go with you everywhere: on the train, beside your bed, at work, on a beach in Hawaii. What is even better is when the truth is engraved into your mind and you can really start living and breathing what God has written. Because through people like us, He wrote it, and it’s right there in black and white. Hallelujah! Through God we can find our true selves, and build the strongest of foundations to live upon, to reach the end goal; Heaven. 

By human nature, we forget.

But don’t forget to read scripture. Without it our foundations will become unstable and we will lose sight of God, Our Father, who wrote it all down for us. Just to make life a little easier.
