Nothing we are doing is possible without God’s help.
When Noëlle and I were shopping for wedding bands we hadn’t given much thought to what we wanted inscribed on the interior of the rings. The question became prominent when my ring was going in to be stretched a little. We discussed a number of options and opted for a favorite verse of mine, Psalm 127, verse 1:
“Unless the Lord builds the house, in vain do the builders labor.”
Hers says “Unless the Lord builds the house,” and mine says “in vain do the builders labor.”
It’s true of a marriage, and of any other endeavor: human success may be possible to some degree without seeking out and cooperating with the will of God, but heavenly success, success on what is ultimately important, is not.
The Hilltop Children’s House is a fruit of our marriage. It would not be happening if we had not gotten married. It is borne of a desire to do something good for our home town and especially our home neighborhood.
And so it is impossible if we are not reliant upon God’s providence.
We ask you to pray with us for the success of this endeavor, and to consider supporting the Hilltop Children’s House in any way you are able.
