I took a few minutes this morning to read a couple of blogs. I was reading Darby's blog, and she referred to a family in Alabama. Read her words and see what jumps out at you.
"The house is unbelievable and as wonderful as the images are, the house is even more beautiful in real life, I wish you could see the bedrooms, bathrooms and Mitch’s office! Mitch & Gaye have been incredible mentors to Justin & I for many years. They absolutely love the Lord and have used their fabulous house for His glory and I’m so happy for them!" ( This home is going to be featured in the Feb. issue of Southern Living.)
So, what struck your eye? Yes, I love beautiful houses and would love for someone to turn mine into one! But look at the sentence Darby used to describe the owners of the house. They have been mentors to Darby and her hubby. They love the Lord and have used their house for His glory. Stop...think...pray.
"Father, have I used my home for your glory? Or, am I waiting for it to all come together decorated and fluffed up so that it looks great? Sometimes I'll put off having others over if I don't have time to clean and dust. God, change my heart! I truly want my home--that you have provided for us---to be for your glory. Show me how! I love you, Lord. Amen."
This really has hit my heart today as I look around at the piles of laundry waiting to be put away. At the kitchen island covered in memorial thank you notes. At the hardwoods now showing doggy prints from the rain. Hmm....what should I do? Change my heart, Father God. Make me more like you.
