Wish you had peace in your home? It’s not as impossible as you may imagine.
Do you ever wish you had peace in your home?
I can only think of one solution: the Lord.
Similarly, if you’re looking for peace in your life, the only way you’ll find it is through Jesus.
By taking the time to invite God into your home, you’ll be able to experience that He alone can give.
What does this look like?
I remember moving into my third apartment as a single woman – a Victorian century home. I loved the home’s character, but the ceilings were so high and the house was so old, that I was a little scared to be alone inside once it was dark out.
My first night there, I sat on my living room floor, surrounded by boxes that needed unpacked – and I prayed for the Lord to protect me in that home. I also prayed that He would use that space to welcome and serve others, and that He might be glorified in that one-bedroom apartment.
You know what happened to my fear?
And the Lord answered my prayers during my two years there.
Ever since then, my family prays a similar prayer of protection, blessing and peace when we move into a new home.
Whenever we’re hosting a gathering, I pray for the Lord to use us – and our home – to bless others.
By praying as we enter and continue to use our home, we recognize that God is God. We invite Him to be a part of our daily lives. We can give thanks for the many ways He has blessed us. And we acknowledge that the only way we can possibly bless others is through His power – not our own.
Pray for peace
When your family’s facing a tumultuous time or your home just doesn’t feel like a place of rest, pray. Invite the Lord to take over. Plead for Him to intervene in relationships. Pray for His healing.
Then keep praying. You can do something homey to remind you – simply light a candle and remember to pray. (Whenever I light a candle in my home, I pray for everyone living there to be at peace with each other.)
It’s never too late to start praying. If you pray for peace and keep asking God to be a part of what’s happening in your home, something amazing will eventually happen. You’ll find peace.
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.” – Isaiah 26:3
