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 62:5, 8

"Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in him...
O my people, trust in him at all times.
Pour out your heart to him,
for God is our refuge."
Psalm 62:5, 8 (NLT)

Things in my family are pretty upside-down right now. I have so much I want to say - lectures that are bursting to come forth from my lips, but the Lord has clamped my mouth shut. I am learning to "wait quietly before God". I trust him - even with things that I think I could do such a good job with. ;-) 

Sunday afternoon I went on a hike to a waterfall with my boys. The waterfall was so peaceful and beautiful. While the boys went off in search of Bigfoot, I poured out my heart to God. That day, sitting on a rock in the middle of the creek, with the waterfall right next to me, God was my refuge. I was leaning my back upon the rock and it felt just as if I was sitting with God's arms wrapped around me. He heard my prayer and I trust him to work in the hearts of my family, including my own heart. We need restoration and God is the God of restoration, so I will wait quietly for his work to be complete.
