We Will Serve The Lord

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. • Psalms 127:1

This time last year, we were a few months into building our home. Our contractor told us that the drywall would be going up soon, so we hurried to the homesite with permanent markers and covered the wooden framing with God's Word. We wrote scriptures all over the house and we prayed. 

We prayed for protection in our home; for health and happiness inside it. We prayed for Godly provision and contentment in our hearts. We prayed for restful sleep, traveling mercies, and so much more.
I remember everything we wrote and where we put it. Sometimes I walk by and run my hands along the walls and smile, thinking of the beautiful, life giving words that sit just under the messy drywall and paint.

We love that we were able to take advantage of this opportunity in our new build. But the truth is, you don't need to cover the frame of your home with Bible verses to bless it and ask for God's hand in your life. He's already in your home and He's listening every time you pray. 

Seek the Lord. Pray for His guidance in all you do. Double check with Him about all the things. He is listening. He wants to grant you the desires of your heart, according to His divine and perfect will. It can sometimes be difficult for us to trust God, especially when things aren't going well. But He wants the best for us and will provide our every need if we just give Him control.

"Pray often, for prayer is a shield to the soul, a sacrifice to God, and a scourge for Satan." • John Bunyan
