One Thing: Building

Unless the LORD builds the house,
   those who build it labor in vain.
Unless the LORD watches over the city,
   the watchman stays awake in vain.

Psalm 127:1

Our efforts -- our best laid plans and hard work -- are worthless if we try to do anything without the Lord's blessing.  Our best will never be enough. I must let the Lord "build" every part of my life from the ground up.

Elizabeth, you have a great way of distilling truth into encouraging and challenging vignettes. Have you thought about going to work on writing a devotional? ...Perhaps a book of thoughts from Scripture targeted toward young ladies walking through their courtship days?

You're doing great! Love... Dad
