On Our Hearts: A Godly Home

Are you taking care of your home? I'm not talking about the dusting, cleaning, and the endless pile of laundry. Or the weeding, mowing, or trimming that gives our home curb appeal. Is your home walking in the will of God? You may have your child's extra-cirricular activities all planned out, or even your summer vacation plans booked but have you thought about what's truly important? Just as God has a plan for each of our lives, He has a plan for your family. He desires an obedient household that shows mercy and love not only to each other but to all on the outside looking in. Your home may need a fresh coat of paint on the exterior, but a covering of God's grace on the interior will ultimately increase your home's value.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We are so thankful that You are a loving and forgiving God. Lord we submit every area of our family to You. We ask that You be the head of our household. May we look to you for guidance and leadership. Show us how to be obedient to Your Word and fulfill the purpose that you have set aside for us. We also ask that there be peace in our home. May our words be filled with love and mercy. Let us be slow to anger, and quick to hear. Lord, let us rejoice and laugh with each other. May we freely forgive those in our home, just as you have forgiven us Lord. Thank you for the family that you have blessed us with. While our home may not be perfect, we can rest in knowing that You are, Lord. Let our front door be an entrance to solace and delight to You, God.


"He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built." Luke 6:48
