Positivity Notecards

As I said in a previous post of mine, I will be using Mondays as the day that I write about my faith or something inspirational. Today, I want to write about how we, as a family, try to keep a positive and God centered home. A few years ago, a friend told me to write Bible verses on notecards and put them in every room in our home.
The Bible I got for Christmas.
When we moved out of that house I took the verses down. In our past two homes I didn't put verses up on the wall. I so wish I had because in the first home that I did this with, we all felt peaceful and calm. At the beginning of this year I made a family goal for the New Year to keep the energy positive and peaceful. With a family of 7, things can get chaotic. We are not a perfect family by any means. We make mistakes. We also love each other no matter what. It is because we have God at the center of our chaotic moments and He is the center of our home. We are raising our kids to know that God comes first, above all else. I also made a personal commitment to study God's word more than ever before. I want to be the wife and mother that God created me to be. I know I have been slacking and it shows through our attitudes (especially mine). I think these notecards will help keep our family accountable to staying true to our goals and commitments.
Simple Dollar Tree index cards.
The Bible verses I have started to put up around our home remind us where we need to keep our focus as a family. If God is not first, everything crumbles around us. The verses also remind me to keep studying God's word and be a light, not just for my family, but for my community and those that read my blog. I pray that we can shift our energy in our home back to being peaceful and positive, and most of all loving. I know a peaceful and calm home brings out the best in all of us. As for my personal commitment to study God's word more, I want my kids to see that I turn to God for everything. I want them to see the passion I have for God's word and see that I believe it can change people. Most of all I want them to see my faith in God no matter what our circumstances are.
For those that don't believe the way I do, you can find positive quotes and write those down. There are many positive quotes out there. You can even write affirming words on notecards and put those around your home. Having positive quotes and affirming words around your house can change the mood and atmosphere in your home. Please understand that I am in no way pushing my beliefs on you. I am simply hoping to inspire you to keep the positivty in  your environment. In our world, we need more positivity and less negativity. We need more love from everyone.

If I want a better atmosphere in my home, it starts with my husband and I digging deep into God's word and being an example to our kids. I hope this post inspired and encouraged someone in the fact that you can make a difference in your home and community. You can start today. You don't have to invite negativty into your life. You can invite positivity and peacefulness. You can be a radiant light so others can see that negativity doesn't stand a chance in the world. There will be days that are hard, but the positive words from God's word will carry you through. God's love will carry you through.

  1. This was so on time!!! I'm a believer of Christ. I love getting to know Christ deeper everyday concerning every area of my life. I always want to know what His plans are for my life. I recently just graduated from college where I was involved in a on campus college ministry. So after graduation I moved back to my hometown where I stared a new job in my filed, but recently I find myself missing being involved in ministry life with my peers. I love my new job and I love being back in the city, but I really miss ministry life and my brothers and sisters in Christ. I haven't found a new church here back at home yet, but I still help out the college ministry in was that I can long distance. I thank you for sharing that God is head of EVERYTHING, even our own feeling must bow to the name of Jesus! and we must choose His rightly thinking according to His living word.

  2. Sometimes a right sentence full of hope and faith is all that one needs to believe in oneself.

  3. 100% agree on positive quotes. So often overlooked or thought as unnecessary. I believe the power of positive thinking is so important and having a quote to guide/push you along the way defo helps

  5. I like the idea of having quotes of your favorite book around the house that remind you of what is important. Sometimes life gets busy and we are so stressed out that we forget what is important.

  15. A few years ago when I was going through a rough time I started printing out inspiring quotes and putting them up on my wall. By looking at them every morning and night, I felt so comforted and driven to get out of the darkness and back into the lighter side of life.

  16. This is such as good idea. I truly need to begin to do this in my life as I need to really begin to draw closer to God and little daily reminders would help.
