A Heart For My Home

Where is your heart? 

Where is your treasure?

Matthew 6:21 says For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Before I go further in the is post - let me say that my Number 1 Treasure is found in God and The relationship (not religion) that I have with him. 

This blog is titled A Heart For My Home because truly that is where my heart is.  My Heart is at Home and my Treasure also is at home. 

No, My treasure isn't found in the stick built house we call home.  My treasure is not the little trinkets or decorations that adorn the tables and walls inside my house and it's not in the food that is prepared here on a daily basis. 

My Treasure at Home is My Family. The Family that God has so richly Blessed Me With.  My Husband - a godly man, the Leader of our Home,  my best friend.   My Sons - that I am a steward over for the Lord - the ones I am working on building and shaping into Mighty Men of God that are Gonna Shake Future Generations for Jesus.  

In today's world so many people treasure the wrong things.  The big house they live in, the newest car to drive, name brand clothes, flat screen tv's in every room and all the cool gadgets of the day.  Don't get me wrong here - there is nothing wrong with having all of these things, God wants us blessed so we can be a blessing to others but what God doesn't want is for our treasure to be in earthly good's. 

3 John 1:2  Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers.

Matthew 6:19-21  19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

I encourage you to examine your heart today and really think about what you treasure.  Do you enjoy taking care of your family?  Do you love the mundane tasks of cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, running errands, etc... 

In Titus 2, Woman are called to love their husbands and children and be keepers at home among other things.

My job is at home.  My heart is at home.  My treasure is at home.

Titus 2:4-5 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

Where is your Heart? 


  1. Beautiful post! We certainly can't be successful wives and mothers when our hearts aren't at home but elsewhere. We can't be a "successful" Christian when our hearts are on our possessions.

    You're right, what do we treasure? Our house or the family that makes it a home?

    Thanks so much for linking up to the "Making Your Home Sing Monday" linky party today! :)

  2. Yes, my heart is at home! And, that's where it should be! Thanks for the reminder!

  3. Hello there! YES, my heart is at home too! I keep everything in running order. I am a daughter to the King of Kings, a homeschooling mom and a wife to my best friend. I take pride in everything I do in my home and I am truly blessed to be able to be A Keeper of My Home.
    Thank you for such a great reminder of that!!!
    Blessings to you,

  4. This is excellent. Many times I find myself forgetting that even though my children are grown, I still need to make sure my heart is at home. With the immediate need for focusing on the home dissolves, we still need to remember as a wife it's our first responsibility.

  5. I'm visiting from Graced Simplicity.
    My heart has always been at home. I've been married 37 years and I feel very blessed to have stayed at home for all of those years.

    I love your blog. I will definitely be back!

  6. I like your possible name change for the blog!
