Filling In the Cracks

Published on

They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. Luke 6:48

We have a crack in the foundation of our home. So, I’ve been doing some research about it. I’ve learned the common mistake people make when repairing it is to use the wrong product. Doing so causes more problems than it solves.

If caulking is used, it erodes or falls away over time, opening the crack back up again. If hydraulic cement is used, it doesn’t divert the water. It actually damns it instead, causing more pressure on the crack.

I can’t help but think of our country.

  1. Powerful analogy here, Claire … the cracked foundation!! You can be certain of my prayers daily for this blessed country that only God can heal, mend, protect, and preserve, all that has been created on sound spiritual principles, while we, at the same time recognize and acknowledge our flaws and make ongoing, sincere efforts to correct them. Only by earnest, faithful prayer, asking daily to know the truth and God’s will for this country, with an honest recognition of what we need to eradicate will our country be saved from the total downfall experienced by other once great, powerful nations such as Rome and Greece … both destroyed from enemies within!!!
    I will share your prayer request for sure. And let’s trust together that God will mend
    our country’s cracks!!!


    • Funny you should mention Rome and Greece because that has been my thought recently. They were once great, and are no longer. We cannot go that route and God is the only solution. Thank you for praying for our nation on a daily basis. We need more prayer warriors like you, Jackie!!!


    • From your lips to God’s ears, Elaine! Is seems our country is so fractured, God is our only hope. Thank you so much for sharing this on your Facebook page. That means a lot!!!
