Jesus as the Home of my Soul

Photo Credit

What a beautiful thing it is that Jesus cares about us and every little thing we do. Whether it is making our beds, doing the dishes, teaching a math lesson, or folding clothes - He is interested in all of these things and watches over us as we perform our daily labors. Likewise, we can and should meditate on Him while engaged in any task, no matter how menial.

I ran across the following on an index card that my Mom had placed in her scriptures. This little illustration might be good to put above your sink as a reminder that the Lord is in and through all things:

Picture Jesus as the Home of my Soul

Ceiling- He protects me and is above me
Floor - Supports and is below me
Walls- His arms are wrapped around me

Meditate on Him through Household Activities:

Getting dressed in the morning - Wear the "garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness" (this is a wonderful way to remind me throughout the day to praise Him and not fear the circumstances).
Doing Dishes, cleaning, etc.- Ask that God would cleanse me of sin and worry
Fine Arts (Crocheting, Sewing)-Realizing God is concerned about ALL the details of our lives
Our beds-Resting in His arms!

If we all could remember to start each day with this attitude and these thoughts... what a beautiful day each and every day would be!

This was beautiful, and very comforting. I often find myself imaging Jesus sitting at my kitchen table, the chair backwards, just shooting the breeze. It's nice to know he hangs around all the time, not just during dire emergencies.

What a wondeful analogy - Jesus as the home of our soul! Thank you for this encouraging thought today!
