I was reading in Matthew 7 this morning and came to the well-known verses about building your house on the rock. The children’s song “The Wise Man Built His House upon the Rock” came to mind. The thing that struck me again this morning is that the storm hit the wise man’s house as well as the foolish man’s house.

Storms are going to come, no matter who you are. Your particular storm may not look like mine. However, as long as we build a strong foundation on the Rock (Jesus), we can withstand anything. Life can throw stuff, sometimes awful stuff, our way, but when we keep our eyes on Jesus (and not on the waves, like Peter) we can stay afloat.
