Who is Setting Your Home’s Atmosphere?

This is a short post. On purpose.

Someone will be setting the atmosphere for your home. Is it you, parent?

Or have you allowed someone—or something—else to set the atmosphere for you?

It is your home. Setting the atmosphere is like setting a thermostat.

You and the Holy Spirit have the leadership reins....if you choose.

You can intentionally set atmospheres. I know. I've done it and so have you!

Stress.
Anger.
Disinterest.
Fear.
Strife.
Battle.
Fatigue.
Disorder.

Or…

Joy.
Love.
Peace.
Conflict resolution.
Energy.
Creativity.
Order.
Courage.
Honesty.
Transparency.
Passion.

If the atmosphere in your home is not what you want......what will you do???

This is the first day to sow seeds toward your new atmosphere!!!

    Wonderful! I can definitely be guilty of setting a BAD and SELFISH atmosphere in my home. It's a decision to set a positive and loving atmosphere in our homes. Thank you for this great reminder and call to action!

    Blessings,
    Nicole @ WKH

      Nicole,
      Thanks for stopping by. Yes, it is a decision that we make.

    Yes. I get this. You know that old saying, "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy?" I always used to think of that as sort of a threat, as in, "You really should do your best to keep me happy so I don't make your lives miserable."

    However. I've also realized the power I have to sow either joy or unhappiness within my household. I can set the tone. And I'm not always happy--which means I've got to spend some time at the feet of my Father and dwell in the depth of his love for me.

    Stopping over from Jen's. Nice to meet you.
