What is "Building A House"?

"Building A House" is a blog about my journey back to God. The name comes from Proverbs 24:3-4 (The Message), "It takes wisdom to build a house, and understanding to set it on a firm foundation; it takes knowledge to furnish its rooms with fine furniture and beautiful draperies."

No, this isn't going to be a blog about making my house look pretty - at least not pretty on the OUTSIDE. But, I'm going to be working on getting my house
"pretty" on the SPIRITUAL side. I'm coming back from a pretty dark place in my life after losing 8 babies to miscarriage. This blog is about my journey back
to the Lord.

Psalm 37:5, 7-8

"Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you...
Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act.
Don't worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their
wicked schemes. Stop being angry! Turn from your rage!
Don't lose your temper - it only leads to harm."
Psalm 37:5, 7-8 (NLT)
This. This is what I'm trying to do with some situations in our lives. I'm trying to commit the things that are making me so angry towards some people in our lives to the Lord. I'm trying to trust in his holy plan for our lives - for my husband's life - and I'm trying not to be angry. I know this situation doesn't please the Lord, but I also know my husband has done what he can do. It is now in God's hands. And God WILL act. Maybe not in the way we'd like, but he WILL act. And when he does, I know that everything will be ok, because I trust in Him.
