Spiritual blueprints to build with
I was recently reminded of the healing lessons our family learned while we were building a home in a rural area.
My husband decided he wanted the experience of building a house. So we purchased blueprints from a magazine, bought property in the country, and he took a course on building codes at the local junior college. There seemed to be three main challenges. First, people kept alerting us that we needed to plan to stay on the site every night because, in the area we had chosen, building materials would be stolen. Second, we were told that we needed to avoid the building inspector in that county as he was very difficult. Third, we realized that we had lost the only sketch we had of the finished house; all we had were the blueprints.
We tried sleeping at the homesite, but we both had full-time jobs and a small child, so we quickly recognized the practical need to stay at our current home at night. It was clear this whole project, and the challenges that came with it, needed to be addressed through prayer.
