"No man is an island, entire of itself."
I've heard God whisper this to me over and over this past week.
Can you hear the sound of my ego puffing?
God took this week to show me what was up. I knew something was coming. I've been bombarded over the past week with messages of letting Christ be your foundation and your Rock. The house built on sand will not withstand the storms. Lord, is that true. This week seemed like one thing after the other, and I hit a wall. Or maybe got smacked with a humble pie? This week, it turns out, was a big blessing. I was reminded that no man is an island unto himself. There really is no "self made man."
There are people who helped that man get to where he is.
I was so humbled this week by the amount of people, from family, to people who barely know me, to friends, who dropped what they were doing to move heaven and earth to help me. What a SWEET BLESSING to have a net of people who can catch you, especially when you didn't know they were there to begin with.
Thank the Lord for the people he places in our lives who show us His love, usually without even knowing it, and for the blessings we receive when our faith is firmly planted.
Praise to Him!
