” It is not the beauty of a building you should look at; It is the construction of the foundation that will hold the test of time” – David Allen Coe
Now that my husband and I can start laying the foundation for our lives, we have become so overwhelmed we end up slowly but surely making little to no progress. However the Holy Spirit touched my heart and I realized “If I can adjust to being sick then I can go back to my life slowly but surely. I have faith that God will guide me there”. As if a light bulb went off instantly.
But how does one just get up and go after being down for so long. The first step is always asking for help. So I prayed “God please guide me through the readjustment process”.
I knew that my first step would be to reestablish God as my foundation for my life.
1 Corinthians 19-20.
19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself,
20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.
When we become Christians we are to allow Christ into all aspects of our lives. Now when you get a Chronic Illness this task becomes more and more difficult to over come.
How does God want me to build this foundation?
1 Corinthians 3:11
11 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ.
FANTASTIC!!! I don’t have to build the foundation at all! God has already done it for me. I just now have to find the strength to stand on the foundation and trust it to hold me up. This is easier said than done.
However God has given me instructions on what it means for me as a woman to stand on this very trusting and solid foundation. All I have to do is follow the instructions in Proverbs 31. Join me over the next few weeks or however long this takes me. As I rediscover what it means to be a Proverbs 31 woman with a chronic illness.
