Someone once said there are two kinds of people in the world; those whose lives have fallen apart and those whose lives will fall apart. I am not sure the language is 100% accurate but I think we can all attest to some level of brokenness in our lives. It has been rewarding to think Biblically about this subject over the past few months and to focus our thoughts going forward on how we cooperate with God in the rebuilding process.
Moving forward in faith is the best thing any of us can do. We do that best when we do it together. There will surely be push back as we will address this morning, but there are also tremendous promises of God for those who continue on the journey. Our Lord will give us the insight we need to see life through His eternal lens if we quiet ourselves before Him.
It is my prayer that each of us learn to weave the lessons from Nehemiah into our lives and find hope in the process.
