Morning Motivation. “God Holds Our Heart” Ephesians 3:11

This verse from Ephesians reminds me of the saying, 

“Home is where the heart is”

Here is what on online dictionary says about this,

your home will always be the place for which you feel the deepest affection, 
no matter where you are.”

“Home” is not always our physical house.  Our physical home may not be a place where we feel safe, loved, and at peace.  I am sure there are homes where people find unconditional love and acceptance, but this is not always the case.

I love where I am living now.  I have a lovely townhouse.  My home is comfortable and has everything I need to feel safe and secure.   I have AC, heat, running water and all those things we tend to take for granted. Does my place of residence hold my heart?  No, I could move out tomorrow.   Although I love my house, it does not hold my heart.

For me “Home” is anywhere I can spend time with my kids and grandkids.  “Home” is taking my dog on long walks.  “Home” is being in God’s presence and knowing he is beside me always. “Home” is the joy of knowing that God holds my heart.

Praying the scriptures for all who are enduring the pain of separation and divorce.

Dear God,

Please make your home in our hearts Lord.  Help our trust in you to increase as we walk with you.  Thank you for loving us and helping our strength to grow as we rely on you.

I love you.

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
