We hate to admit it, but it's something we all desire and cannot function efficiently without it- structure.
This week, the crew was laying down the first structures of our new building. These pipes are parts of the initial framework for our foundation. They resemble progress and one more step on the journey forward.
While we may fight and struggle with structure in our own lives, it's a necessity. Without it, families would fall apart, children would suffer, and we'd find ourselves in complete chaos.
As you go into the coming week, be encouraged by the words of the writer of hebrews:
"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it."
A good, firm structure will keep you standing no matter the storm.
