Cornerstone

Our family recently bought a new home. I use the term “new” loosely because this house is definitely a fixer-upper. It is old plaster and lath in many of the rooms, and was in terrible need of updating. However, it has remarkable charm and suits are family very well.  The new purchase hasn’t been without its difficulties while we have (and by “we” I mean my husband, John) replaced ceilings, painted, tore out old flooring, bathroom fixtures, and so on. Structurally, our new house is sound. It has a reasonably strong foundation.

I see myself in the house: lots of potential, but not without flaws. Struggles. History. But I have a strong foundation!

Hillsong Live has a powerful song:

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly trust in Jesus name
Christ alone; cornerstone
Weak made strong; in the Saviour’s love
Through the storm, He is Lord
Lord of all

Just as my new house has a stable foundation, my soul does as well.

I cannot put hope in anything else than Christ. It is His name that gives me stability, security, strength, and peace. When the storms arise in my life, in my heart, and I find myself anxious, it is then that I need to be reminded that He is my cornerstone; my firm foundation.

Psalms 46:10 reminds us to “Be Still, and know that I am God.” When life becomes difficult, tumultuous, and I’m feeling anxious, He makes me strong.
