Walking Within Your House

I was sitting in the home of one of my Titus older women several months ago, and commented on how beautiful she kept everything. There were no piles on the floor (as there were at my house at the time), the knick-knacks were neatly displayed in a glass case (as mine were not), and there were pictures of family and friends arranged everywhere (that I did not have).

She is well up in age and while she handles it gracefully, I just had to know how she kept her house so lovely all the time.

Her answer astounded me - "Because I tidy up every morning before I do anything else."

This beautiful Christian woman will clean her home first thing every day, freshen up each room and make it presentable for those who may drop in. She makes her house a peaceful refuge for anyone who walks through her door. Her love for the Lord tugs on her heart to work as unto Him, and that includes the simple household chores of the day.

I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. Psalm 101:2

I know a lovely lady who is doing just that - she is wise in the ways of keeping a home and because of the work she does there, she can keep a perfect heart. Her relationship with the Lord is strong because everything she does serves Him.

This one statement from a woman I deeply love and respect changed how I look at my home's upkeep and how I can use my hard daily work to serve God. I want everything I do to be pleasing unto Him, and I want my home to reflect that to everyone who enters.

Thank you, my dear sister in Christ, for showing me how to use my home to create something for God's glory.
