Perseverance. Endurance. Staying power. All things that require us to keep moving. Keep doing….But our bodies and complete, needing nothing.” (James 1:3-4)

The concrete buckets were heavy as we would hoist them up above our heads to another worker who was stand our backs were tired. But somehow, our hearts were full.

The Christian life and gave himself for me.”

But we are called to join not only in Christ’s suffering, but also in His resurrection. I realized on this trip that no matter how caked on the concrete was at the end of each day, even the trickle of cold shower water would easily remove it. In the same way, the Living Water of Christ cleanses us of the dirt and grime of this world. Each day, His mercies come fresh each morning so that we are able to prepare again to build the Kingdom. One block, one bucket, one family, one child at a time.

Just like we worked as a team to raise up the walls of the four homes, so we must walk the Christian life, hand burdens are heavy like concrete buckets on our shoulders. We must keep building.

Building these homes was a heavenly picture of the building of our eternal home, the Kingdom of God. The realization that there were four families waiting to move into the homes made me push that much harder to complete them. It gave me a sense of urgency. Much more than that, there are millions of lost souls around the world who are just waiting to hear the Good News of the Gospel and of an eternal home where “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4

So today, I will keep on lifting, keep on pushing andon. All in anticipation of joining all of those whom I love in an eternal home called Heaven. Where we will be able to eternally rest our once weary hearts in the love of the Savior of the world. The master builder.
