Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:
        I wrote this song at the altar, alone with God, after a final cleaning out of the HS/College classroom where I'd taught with joy for 9-1/2 years.  A voluntary leaving, resulting from prayers for guidance and reaching a conclusion that I should, at least for awhile, allow others to learn the joy of teaching youth.

    But I was brokenly thinking of other losses over the past two years.  This song from God -- again written within minutes (total of one hour, lyrics and music -- it took longer to type!) seems to be His answer FOR  US  ALL:

    Sometimes God needs to knock down our wooden house ministry  so that we'll depend on Him to rebuild us up as cathedrals.... to show everyone that it us NOT us but our Wise, Loving, Great Architect God Who is building us up.  And our God comforts us while we weep in the heap of our old blocks.

Dedicated to our BUILDING UP God, 18 June 2010

The child's building blocks were all used up - a nice little house of wood.  The
child studied hard, then caught me off guard as he
smacked down blocks hard as he could.
“Why did you do THAT?”  I brokenly asked. 
“This was such a nice little house.”
    “I needed those blocks,” the child simply said, “to
    build a great house you will see ... with my plan.”

My life seemed O.K. as day after day I 

gladly worked hard to serve God.     I
was caught off-guard ---    I felt smacked down hard 

           when this
                            ministry seemed taken away.
“Why did you do THAT, God?”  I brokenly asked. 
“This work for You seemed to do much.”
    “I'm taking these blocks,” God seemed to reply, “to
    build your great life ministry.... with My Plan.”

How silly we'd be to doubt architects
renowned for cathedral designs.

How silly we ARE to doubt God's great Plan for our
Life:  God's buildings never fall!  

                               -- Jeremiah 29, start at 11(through 14).

“Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."
Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." 
  -- Revelation 21: 2b-5 NKJV
