Before the drywall was installed in our new home, I decided to mark several of the studs throughout the house with certain Bible verses. Some of these verses have to do with the room and the purpose it will serve and some are more personal. I thought I’d share which verses I used in case anyone else out there is looking for ideas like I was…and also for my own reference since these are all sealed up beneath insulation and drywall now.
You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
Heart of the Home:
… But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
Remove falsehood and lies far from me; Give me neither poverty nor riches— Feed me with the food allotted to me; Lest I be full and deny You, And say, “Who is the LORD?” Or lest I be poor and steal, And profane the name of my God.
As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.
A song of ascents. Of David. How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
(I forgot to take a picture of the living room wall.)
1 Timothy 4:12
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
(I forgot to take a picture of the master bedroom wall.)
But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”
Playroom (Den, Spare Bedroom):
See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn— shout for joy before the LORD, the King.
