Without a plan, chaos reigns... I have had lots of weeks in which I felt like chaos was reigning in my home. This isn't what I wanted, though. My heart is to create a haven for my family. A place they desire to spend time in. A place where peace and calm would reign. I have been far from where I wanted to be. So, how do I get where I want to be? Let's look at how to create a home filled with peace.
First, we must spend time with the Lord. Read His word, soak in His presence, be filled with the joy of His love. This reorients you to the focus of your life. Our purpose is to glorify Him. Our lives, our time, our homes are meant to be spent in ways that glorify Him. Memorizing scripture so that we can recall His words in times of stress, meditating on His words all during the day - these activities will keep our focus on Him. The goal isn't the activity - but spending time with Him, thinking about Him, and loving Him with all our heart, mind, and soul.
