The BEST Way to Rise to the Top is to Bring Others with YOU!

Hold my hand

show me the way

I am buried

in this clay

The land was hard

at one time

but foolish me

didn’t give a dime.

 

Just built my life

it looked nice

water warm

foolish choice.

It washed away

all my plans

now I’m buried

empty hands.

 

Please show me

how to live my life

I’m burdened here

full of strife.

 

I need a map

I need His love

I need a Savior

from up Above.

 

Yet, I don’t know

I need your story

I need your hope

that comes from Glory

You have a rock?

show me the way

I’ll build there

save me today.


I think the very best way to build anything is with a solid foundation.  If you have fantastic support, failure is rarely an option.  Just like the story of the man who built his house on sand.  We can’t expect success if we have nothing to fall back on.  It’s futile.

Matthew 7:24-27

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

 

There are 2 types of people in this world, leaders and supporters.  The powerful are designed to direct and guide and their support comes from those that require their direction.  The very best leaders are able to rise due to the love and support of the people they guide.

As great leaders go through life they bring people with them.  People desire their guidance and because of that they rise with a foundation that cannot be moved.  Do you live a life that has a firm foundation?  Do you rely on a rock or sand?

As Christians, we are commanded to share the love and guidance of God.  Who wouldn’t want to?  This relationship I have with my God and Savior is the best thing I have in life.  I want to scream it from the highest point so that everyone on Earth can hear:

THIS IS WAY BETTER!  I have been where you are, and this is the only option.  GOD IS GOOD.  His mercy is eternal.  This life is better.

Dear Lord, as we all go through our day to day routines, please remind us that we need to have a firm foundation.  Trivial life, failure and sin are all around us.  If we lose focus on You, please remind us that we have a firm foundation – YOU.  Nothing is stronger than you, God, You are our ROCK.  Please help us all bring others with us on our journey to eternity with You.  Help us be great leaders and be brave and loving enough to share the Love and Safety only YOU can provide.  Thank you for our blessings and our powerful reminders to constantly lean on you and love you.  Thank you for Salvation and for forgiveness.  In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
