“Your house is so _____”

A very stylish neighbor of mine stopped in unexpectedly the other day.

As soon as she walked in and looked around she said, “Your house is so…”

Cute? Nope.

Beautiful? Nope.

“…peaceful.”

That was one of the nicest compliments about our home I’ve ever received.

You see, that’s what I what our house to be. Warm. Comfortable. And yes, peaceful.

We don’t have to have the newest and best things, nor the most expensive things, to have a lovely home. In fact, I happen to prefer the stuff that has a history – things that beg to be rescued, made over and loved once more.

Perhaps one reason why is because that’s what God did for me.

He rescued a little girl, abandoned by her birth parents, and is slowly making her into something special in His eyes – a woman of the Word, of prayer and of character.

Though I fall so short every day, He is there to encourage me, guide me and give me His peace. His mercies truly are new every morning.

And He longs to do the same for you, if you will let Him.

Matthew 11:28-29 says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
