One of my college roommates, Laura, had the beautiful habit of placing scripture all around our apartment. Sometimes written on a notepad, a dry-erase board on the refrigerator, a sticky note left for me by the front door, all meant to uplift and turn our hearts toward the truth.
I spent a very important year or two staring at these verses–
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…” Isaiah 43:1-3a
This time it was copy paper, printed from the computer and placed in dollar store frames, Simple, sure– but the memory of looking at it more than daily has stayed with me for years. In times of both sheer joy and difficulty, there it was– just above the black and white stove which was crazy uncalibrated and had the habit of burning cookies.
I love how God uses people in our lives and specific scriptures to lift us, challenge us and turn our eyes to Him. I believe it is really important to surround ourselves with words of truth; they preach to our soul when we need it most. Now, clearly any form of writing these words “on the doorposts of our homes” will do– but when it can be done with beautiful pieces of art, even better! I love filling the rooms of our house with beauty and truth!
