Anytime you are present at home is time you can love your family and care for your dwelling place. Here are a few practices that will help you stay focused on your house:
- Your prayers—Coming before God in prayer lifts the work of homemaking out of the physical realm and transports it into the spiritual realm. Prayer helps you line up your desires with God’s plan for you.
- Your purpose—Resolve to be a home builder. Purpose in your heart and in your prayers to live out this role and assignment from God. Then put items on your to-do list that will start and improve the process.
- Your presence—Your presence at home is how a home is built, maintained, and enjoyed. You may have a job or responsibilities that take a chunk of your time each day, but when you are home, determine to be all there. Give it your all. Delight in loving your home—the place where those you love reside or visit.
Don’t guess about the next step and hope for the best. Get a clear view of the right path as you follow God’s wisdom. Elizabeth George takes you on a journey through the 31 chapters of Proverbs, which cover the matters closest to your heart, in Proverbs for a Woman’s Day.
