Quiet Resting Places

Thursday, July 25, 2013

We are in the final stages of finishing our basement!  This space will be used as the new playroom, a family area to watch movies and sporting events, and my husband will finally get his very own office. 

We feel so grateful for this house.  It's way more than we need.  So I thought it would be fitting to write one of God's promises on the floor before the carpet goes in.  If I had a can of spray paint I would have used it!  I just love knowing such a powerful verse will be permanently written on the actual basement foundation of my home.

"My people will abide in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places."-Isaiah 32:18

This is what I want for my family .... peace, security, rest.  And yes I do mean physically, but I also mean internally.  I want peace in all circumstances.  I'm so thankful that I serve a God who cares and knows how desperately we need a secure resting place.

I want to be a person who claims His promises. 
I want to write them on my floors, and on my walls, and I want to speak them in every room.

  1. AMEN. I love that you will always have that reminder "permanently" on the foundation of your house, so to speak :)

    1. Sarah - YES! I love the idea of claiming this home for Him, in written word and in spirit.
