Snippets of Truth: Who is Building Your House?

“Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”

Psalm 127:1, KJV

When I started the TCK email ministry, I had a huge problem: I didn’t give it to God to build it. Instead, I was trying to grow and control its direction myself. I soon heeded His warnings and surrendered it to Him.

Since then, He has been blessing it and gradually building it. Even when I took a break from writing due to a challenge in life, He had placed other writers to help at perfect times.

Thus, it’s not my ministry. It’s His ministry. If He wants it to continue, it will continue. If He wants it to stop, it will be stopped.

Looking back, I praise and give thanks to Him for using this ministry to reach both TCKs and non-TCKs alike.

A question for you: Have you stepped back for Him to build every area of your life?
