Shattered but not broken. Relationships gone south
Walking along the roads of life can sometimes get lonely. We can find ourselves looking for ways to fit in and not standout. Fitting where we can, allowing us to use just enough power to slide or glide by where we fit comfortable. Sometime the comfortable fitting may allow for more room and yet we find ourselves squeezing into tight places. We fit. We accept. We begin not to want more room only desiring to fill the room we are in. Living in a house of glass allows you to see through to the outer. If you squeeze into this glass house, over time the glass will began to crack in dry places where there’s no moisture, or constantly trying to hold on to the little moisture provided. As the moisture slowly dissipates you find yourself stuck on the inside of the glass house which eventually shatters.
As we continue on the road of life, at some point we’ll have experienced a failed relationship. Just because the glass shatters; it doesn’t have to be broken. If you’ve experienced a failed relationship, use the clear view you were given by looking inward, and fix what’s broken and not shattered.
This is the time to pick up the pieces, mend and begin to build a new house upon the foundation that has already been laid. While living in a glass house, take the opportunity to see the light shining through. Use it as a guide to living a more rewarding life; continuing to build your house on the foundation already laid and that’s Jesus Christ!
Thank God you didn’t live in a house of brick which can block your view. At least living in a glass house can allow more light to shine through, allowing you to see your way out.
Acts 4:11 (NIV)
He is the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone.

Keep Your Feet on Solid Ground
Do you know the footprints you’ve left behind?
Are you wearing the right size shoe?
- To step and stride comfortably is to wear the right size shoe. When we wear a shoe size to large, they move around a lot as we walk or sometimes we can walk right out of them as we step.
- Wearing a shoe size to small; we stand in pain and agony pretending our feet don’t hurt until we can’t stand the pain any longer.
The right shoe size must fit the right size foot. If you start out with the right tools and foundation, you can eliminate a lot of pain and agony by keeping your feet on solid ground. The size of your feet doesn’t matter; it still will take one step at a time.
To stand on the right foundation is a must, to eliminate pain and agony; we must know where we’re going based on our foundation we’ve built. When you know the Truth, you don’t have to stand in pain of not knowing, nor do you have to force something that doesn’t fit. You can’t build a foundation on a foundation that has already been laid. You can however, keep your feet on solid ground so the ground that you stand will grow deep roots as you grow a more rewarding life.
If the shoe doesn’t fit, don’t wear it. No different than if it’s not in alignment with what you want in life…Don’t try it! Stand your ground!
1 Corinthians 3:11 (NIV)
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
2 Timothy 2:19
Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”
