Building Our Foundation on the Mountain

Photobucket

So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, "On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided." ~ Genesis 22:14

When I read this verse I immediately thought of that song I sang as a child, "The Wise Man Built His House Upon the Rock."

Where is our foundation being built? Are we building up a strong foundation on Jesus Christ? Or, are we putting our hopes, dreams, goals, and desires on something less sturdy?

I struggle a lot with keeping my faith grounded on Jesus Christ.  But, it has been something I have been working very hard at strengthening! I want my children to see through me that if they "build" their faith and trust on "the mountain" that is Jesus Christ, they will never be without anything they need or desire.  God has taken care of it all!  All He asks is for a little faith, a little of our time, and a lot of our
 Love! (that last part should come easy, since our Heavenly Father is so easy to love!)

For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. ~ 1 Corinthians 3:11
