“Nothing stands without a good foundation.” We could relate that to something we build; a house, bookshelves, or a doll house for a little girl; but aren’t we building our lives too? If the foundation we start with is weak, then it will eventually start to wear down and fall apart. Do you see crumbling stucco, brick, or mortar in your path or around you? Are you tripping on the larger pieces that just keep getting bigger and bigger?
As we mature and grow older, as our paths get more diverse, we make mistakes. Our foundation begins to weaken and for some of us, it will fall. Making mistakes or bad choices are part of growing and maturing. But if we do not take the time to learn from those situations our foundation cannot rebuild and become stronger again. If we continue to walk around the storm we are not adding anything to stable the ground that we stand on, live on, and rely on.
Taking the time to heal from a broken relationship, a death, or just a loss, can strengthen the path that your journey is traveling on. We cannot begin to love someone else until we have dealt with what has happened to us. We have to walk through the storm. For some, it may be a hurricane, a tornado, something that seems impossible to get through, but one step at a time, one day at a time, you will get through.
Are you someone who walks around the issues, the problems, and the mistakes you have made in your life? Did you attach yourself to the next thing that paid attention to you? If so, how many pieces are you stumbling on? Stop being in denial and justifying your thoughts and actions. Take yourself out of the construction zone and start rebuilding who you are. It takes courage, faith, and a lot of trust. But God will never leave your side. You will learn so much about who you are and where you can go. Your journey will be solid and you can say, “I WALKED THROUGH IT!”
It is never too late to start rebuilding your foundation!
Keep moving forward,
