“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.” – Psalm 31:24

It's fun to visit the beach and listen to the sound of the waves. Rushing water draws us closer to the warm sand. It's easy to become aware of God‘s awesome power, and witness the flowing strength of His mighty creation.

Many love to build sand castles. They work hard to construct a foundation which holds the labors of their love. But, sometimes structures are built where the tide arrives and are quickly carried out to the sea. 

Waves are a powerful force. They capture our undisturbed thoughts and carry us to places unknown. We cannot predict how hard they will crash and impact us. In one swift moment, life can forever change where we stand. 

God reminds us to consider how we will choose to build our lives. He supplies what we need to create towers of strength to sustain the tides of time. But, we must be willing to allow Him to help us form a foundation we can build on. 

God will guide us. He will show us how to build our lives on solid ground. He will carry us to the safety of His shore and help us handle the mighty waves of worry, which will try to knock us down. He will help us rebuild the sandcastles of strength in our lives, if we will trust in Him and allow Him to show us how. 

Dear God, Thank you for your everlasting love which arms us with everything we need. Guide us by the power of Your will and help us remember who’s in charge of our days. We will put our hope in You, and find strength to build a faithful foundation of trust. Amen
