As many of you know, I used to build Concrete Foundations and other sorts of Concrete work.  "Concrete work,thats hard work" Is what you will hear almost all the time.

Why does Concrete work have that affect on people ?

There are many little steps that it takes into building a foundation. First you start with a plan, or Blue Print then you build your Footings, which is usually a concrete path that you will build your wall on.. All of which is strenghtened by Rebar and tie wire which holds it together.

Worker bending to tie rebar by handWhen i first started Concrete construction work i thought it was back breaking and monotonous. Alot of little things to do to build a Foundation. As i became more experienced in the field of work, i started to understand why every little step mattered in Building a strong foundation. In order for the Foundation to stand strong and withhold years of "wear and tear" it needs to be done with exactness. You have to have everything square and Precise.

All of us have a Foundation, whether we think it or not. It is built on our personal life, Some maybe stronger than others. Some may be built upon the Principle of good work Ethic and some maybe built upon our Families. God gave all of his children the materials to build our own Foundations. He sent his Son, to be our example and he gives us the Opportunity to build our Foundation upon him.

10And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the afoundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine bhands.

We can build our Foundation upon the Rock of our Redeemer, I think that is so amazing because before you can build your Foundation you have to have something solid to build it on!

12And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the arock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your bfoundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty cstorm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.

Christ is our Rock, he is more Solid than anything in this world, we can build our Foundation upon him through Faith in Jesus Christ, Repenting, Baptism by Immersion ,by the Proper Authority of God and having a willingness and a Desire to serve God. 

I know by doing so, you will have a solid Foundation. That when Trials, Temptations and Afflictions come to you in many diverse ways, they will have no power over you because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall. I leave you my Witness that Jesus Christ lives and Loves everyone of us and God has provided us with the materials to have a solid foundation. The Gospel is True, we will be so much happier when we follow it! In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen
