I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way.
O when wilt thou come unto me?
I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.
The ISV says:
I will pay attention to living a life of integrity
when will I attain it?
I will live with integrity of heart in my house
Which, if we are being honest here, seems a little more likely for me.
Behaving myself wisely in a perfect way is formidable
but paying attention to living a life of integrity gives me some room to correct myself
when I mess up....and I do mess up.
I do believe that peace begins at home so walking within my house with a perfect heart
and living with integrity of heart in my home...
this is certainly what to strive for.
I have put electric candles in our windows and I light seasonally scented candles so
that when Joe comes home from work or if we have friends or family over
it looks welcoming and inviting in our home.
The most important thing though, is that we live and walk with integrity here.
There is nothing that holds a candle to perfect heart.
I am thankful for those who have fought for our country
I also believe that peace begins at home :)ReplyDelete
As God's children we MUST live and walk with integrity, though it can be a struggle sometimes! Thank you for the reminder.
Beautiful thoughts here, Kara. Thank you!ReplyDelete
I just wrote 31 days in Proverbs - INTEGRITY! We can hide stuff from our families and friends but we cannot hide a thing from Father - He sees and knows our hearts. O! that I serve Him with clean hands and a pure heart. #57 at Holley's today.ReplyDelete

I like the image of light--the integrity of heart--shining from the windows of your house. ♥ReplyDelete
I too am charmed coming home to lit windows as dusk falls and strive to offer that to my family at days end. Beautiful message today.ReplyDelete
