it is the Lord's

Last night we dedicated our house to God. John's brother and his sweet wife were here to help us get our house in order. Before we started we spent the evening writing verses, prayers and praises to God on the our bare concrete subfloor. We each silently asked God to fulfill His word in specific ways in this home. And then we shared some of what we wrote and why. Finally, we prayed together to give the house back to the Lord, for His purposes and glory. It was pretty emotional for all of us as we imagined what God might do the years we occupy the home, the lives changed in our living room, the meals shared, the protection needed from the enemy, and the worship of God.
May this be the foundation of our home.
