Does your home feel chaotic and stressful? Are you looking for a way to make your home a peaceful haven for your entire family? I’ve written an ebook/workbook that will walk you step-by-step through the process of bring peace and beauty to your home. LEARN MORE HERE!
Let’s start with the heart of your home…your heart.
Yes mama, it is true. You ARE the heart of your home. Your spirit, your countenance, your heart sets the tone because you are the keeper of the home. Your home is YOUR domain, no matter how many dead animals line your walls or how many school papers hang on the refrigerator. You make the house a home because that is what you were designed to do.
But, that home can either be a place of calm and beauty or a place of strife and dreariness, for the overflow of your heart will spill over into every corner of your home no matter how hard you try to pretend you are someone else.
I once visited a home where Bible verses and Christian art hung beautifully in the living room and other “public” areas of the home, but as you made your way back to the bedrooms, the tone became darker and darker. You saw the true heart of the home and not just what the occupants WANTED you to see.
Your home needs to be a consistent place. There needs to be consistency between your heart and the heart of your home. But, what if you feel broken and bitter and worn down? What if you want to change the heart of your home, but changing your own heart feels impossible. You have spent many years creating a home that is anything but peaceful.
My dear friend, there is HOPE. You CAN take a hurting turbulent heart and make it sing…or rather, GOD can take your heart and fill it with a new song!
So, ASK! Ask Him to fill your days with peace. Ask Him to calm your spirit, quiet your tongue, and focus your heart on your family.
Fill your home with peaceful Scripture. Immerse yourself in God’s Word and let Him set your heart back on track.
Breathe deeper. Speak slower. Listen better. React less. Hug longer. Be purposeful.
I’ve found that when our home begins to groan under the weight of strife, all it takes is a moment of stepping back from it all and refocusing hearts. Sometimes that means going outside to seek the beauty of God’s creation, sometimes that means putting away school work and ignoring messes, sometimes that means cleaning up messes that are creating distractions.
Whatever it takes to calm you heart, so the overflow is beautiful, radiant peace!
