A City Being Built

You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.

Matthew 5:14

As I was driving in my car today, I was over whelmed with the most joy when I heard my two little girls singing worship songs form the back seat. I would be lying if I told you it didn’t bring tears to my eyes. I heard these two little voices that sounded like angels rocking out to music that sang “for greater things are yet to come, for greater things are still to be done in this city.” It was over whelming and enlightening to hear these words flow from two little girls who had no idea the impact of the words they sang, however my heart could feel the impact.

God, what a blessing you gave me with these two little girls. These same girls that fight from the back seat over a toy, these same girls that put finger prints on my walls, these same little girls that sometimes call my name 1 million times in a day, are the girls you intrusted me with. What a conviction of my heart today, to know that God placed these two beauties in my life for a purpose. These two little girls did not choose me, but God choose these two little girls for me. Wow!! Can you say pressure!

Our kids are gifts and their little personalities can be compared to a “city under construction.” The heart and mind of a child is constantly being built. As God placed me as the contractor in my girls lives, I sometimes forget that these girls look to me as a blue print of how to be built. Wow, forget pressure, I think I feel failure.

My feeling of failure is just that, failure when I think I can do it alone. It was confirmed to me through these two beauties and their song that we as adults are also cities being built, the bible is God’s blue prints for us, and our quite time and obedience is our refinement. I mess up quite often by losing my way and getting caught up in things that have no value, but thank you God for your grace and mercy!

What God showed me this morning was with Him and through Him I am not a failure. When I draw close to God my girls watch that and they to draw close to God. And today just the affirmation of them singing songs of praise, was like a sweet reward from the Heavenly Father.

Sometimes as adults, as parents, as friends, or spouses we feel like we are failing or have failed. Just remember there is a God that loves you and with him and through him all things are possible. Meditate on Philippians 4:13 (My favorite verse) today “For you can do all things through Christ, who gives you the strength.”

Have a Blessed Week
