We spent a few hours coming up with scriptures that we felt fit with the purpose of the room & gave tidbits of wisdom or blessing. Then, we took a sharpie & graffitied the boards that held our walls together with God's words.
Here's what we came up with:
Entryway (written above the front door)
And these words which I command you this day shall be upon your heart and you shall teach them...to your children & shall talk of them when you sit in your house & when you walk by the way, & when you lie down & when you rise...& you shall write them on the doorposts of your house & on your gates.
How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to Your word.
Behold I stand at the door & knock. If anyone hears my voice & opens the door I will come into him & eat with him & he with me.
Do not neglect to show hospitality to angels for thereby some have entertained angels unaware.
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go for to you I lift up my soul.
Find rest, oh my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him.
How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults.
But if we are living in the light of God's presence, just as Christ is, then we have fellowship with each other, & the blood of Jesus, his son, cleanses us from every sin.
1 John 1:7
Laundry Room (has door to outside)
For this world is not our home, we are looking forward to our city in Heaven, which is yet to come.
The Lord will watch over your coming & your going both now & forevermore.
By wisdom a house is built & through understanding it is established. By knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious & pleasant riches.
Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Go near to listen...
Surely goodness & love will follow me all the days of my life & I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
He who dwells in the shelter of the most high, who abides in the shadow of the Almighty will say to the Lord, "My refuge & my fortress; My God in whom I trust."
Better is one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil & chasing after the wind.
It is my hope that all who enter this home will be surrounded by God's eternal love & wisdom.
Have you ever done this during construction or remodeling? If so, I'd love to hear what scriptures you chose!
