In Christ Alone My Hope Is Found

In Christ Alone My Hope Is Found

So, then, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. In him, the whole building, being put together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. In him, you are also being built together for God’s dwelling in the Spirit. Ephesians 2:19-22 CSB

What is a cornerstone? A cornerstone is a rock that a structure is built on. When you build a home you build it on a concrete foundation, it won’t crumble or fall apart but it holds your house firm and keeps the home intact. Jesus is that cornerstone, He is our firm foundation that our faith is built upon. He is where our hope and our strength comes from every day of our lives if we let him take control of our lives. This is a choice, do we trust Jesus or do we trust ourselves with our lives?

This can be tough to do for many of us, especially type A’s like myself. We love to solve our problems, we don’t like to wait for God to work in His timing, we want to make them work out the way we think they should be. But doing this isn’t allowing God to work and move in us.  What we want for ourselves may not be what God has planned for us. And what God has for us is SO much more than we can imagine.

God has big plans for us, plans that He will use to further His kingdom when we follow Him and His and HIs leading. Being patient and trusting in certain seasons can be tough, I have been through many of them, but when you are still, stay in His word, trust Him for everything you will find hope, hope in Jesus our solid ground!

Let’s be friends!
