When we built our last home in 2012, I wrote Bible verses on the studs throughout the house that were specific to each room and how we expected to use the room. I continue to be amazed at how many people were touched by the post I wrote about it and the verses I shared. Approximately 2/3 of our current home has exposed subfloors. I decided it was time to cover our home in the Word of God (and a few song lyrics, too) before the new floors go in later this month. I wanted to share my list of verses again with any of you who might be inspired to do the same at your house.
Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.
How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!
The sun comes up
It’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass
And whatever lies before me
Let me be singing
When the evening comes
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
In the morning when I rise give me Jesus
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
Heart of the home
…But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
