Building On The Rock
by Deborah Ann Belka  
12/03/2011 / Poetry

I'm building my house on the Rock,
it's going up brick by brick
I'm using the Word as the mortar
so my faith in God will stick.

The Rock will be my anchor,
for every tempest that comes my way
and I'll hold onto its awesome power
until the tempter goes away.

As the howling winds attack me,
my house will not tip or fall
for the Rock is the eternal strength
that dwells in each and every wall.

Though the floodwaters will rise,
my house will not go under
for its foundation is set in God's grace
and is a testament to His wonder.

I'm building my house on the Rock,
not on a pile of sand . . .
I'm trusting God to keep it strong
so before Him - I can stand!


Matthew 7: 23-27

"Therefore whoever hears these sayings of
Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a
wise man who built his house on the rock:
and the rain descended, the floods came,
and the winds blew and beat on that house;
and it did not fall, for it was founded on the

"But everyone who hears these sayings of
Mine, and does not do them, will be like a
foolish man who built his house on the sand:
and the rain descended, the floods came,
and the winds blew and beat on that house;
and it fell. And great was its fall."
