We hope all are well during this pandemic time. During this craziness, we are in the process of building our first home. We have spent a lot of time on Pinterest and other websites getting ideas about design, furniture, paint colors, and more. Tyler and I have really enjoyed the process and are excited about our future in this home.
As in our daily lives, we want to include God in each step. Spending time praying over the success and safety of those putting our house together, I came across a childhood friend of mine’s Facebook post about them building their home. They were in the framing stage of the process and had written bible verses in the doorway or wall of each room. After completing the rooms in the house, they wrote a verse by the front door and prayed over the house and those that will spend their lives in it. Tyler and I decided that we would also like to do that in our home.
We spent many evenings finding various verses and with the help of Pastor Danielle, we found the perfect ones. Later that evening, we went out to the house and began writing the verses on the framing. After the first few rooms, we felt a sense of joy and comfort that God was with us and would be in the bones of our home forever. After completing each area of the house, we walked to the front of the house and wrote the final verse next to the front door. We prayed that God would show his presence to all that walked through that door and be filled with His love.
With all of the uncertainty that is in our world today, we continue to turn to Him for guidance. He is and will forever be our home.
