Where Weary Hearts Find Rest



While I know we find our ultimate rest and peace in Jesus Christ alone,  I really enjoyed this illustration of what a Christian home could and should be like:



“I believe that a godly home is a foretaste of heaven. 

Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. 

They should be a reflection of our eternal home,

where troubled souls find peace, 

weary hearts find rest,

hungry bodies find refreshment, 

lonely pilgrims find communion, 

and wounded spirits find compassion.”

  3. Great quote. While Jesus should be our first priority (and not our last resort!) in times of trouble and He is a constant friend and guide...we should also build homes where the word of God is taught and applied and where our place of residence is a place we can find comfort in, safety, and accountability and friendship as much as possible. Not to mention guidance, grace, and order.
