Scripture adorns the walls of several rooms in our home. The idea isn’t new or unique, but it is a beautiful reminder of where our hearts and minds should be all day long.
However, I wanted something more personal and unique to our family. So, here are the Scriptures we currently have placed about our home and the area in which they are hung.
Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindness;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.
Bathroom (next to tub):
If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another€™s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.
The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
Next to my daughter’s bed (used to be next to mine, but she needed it more):
When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.
Do not be afraid of sudden terror,
Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes;
For the LORD will be your confidence,
And will keep your foot from being caught.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy€”meditate on these things
Eventually, I want to add more and have them framed in diploma frames. They have been such a comfort and reminder and they are so very easy to make for yourself! All you need to do is:
1. Open up a Word Processor document.
2. Type or copy and paste from a site like Bible Gateway the verses you want to use in your home (set the orientation to Landscape if you like how ours are done).
3. Pick a font and color you like and any other extras you want on the page (we kept ours simple, but you could add ivy leaves, flowers, or any number of things).
4. Print and add a frame or just stick it on the wall the way we did.
