Strong foundations: bible verses for a new house

Bible Verses for a New Home

Several weeks ago, we decided to have a little family house dedication on our new home under construction by writing verses that held meaning and hope for our family. A new home blessing, if you will.

I love the idea that as we walk through the finished rooms of our home in just a few months, we’ll remember the verses written on the foundation of each room we enter. And, maybe someday many, many years from now, a different family might have occasion to see the blessings written by us under the carpet or on the wall studs.

Today I’m sharing inspirational bible verses for a new home blessing.Bible Verses for a New Home Dedication | Five Marigolds

Here are some of the verses we chose:

Entrances: You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out. Deuteronomy 28:6

Kitchen:  Taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalm 34:8Bible Verses for a new home. Dedicate your home with scripture.

Dining room: Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Psalm 90:14

Office: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as if working for the Lord, not for human masters. Colossians 3:23

Stairs: In his heart a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Proverbs 16:9

Basement: Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on a rock. Matthew 7:24

Master Bedroom: And over all these virtues, put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:14

Master closet: Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12

Kid’s rooms:

My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you. Bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Proverbs 3:14Bible Verses for a new home. Dedicate your home with scripture.

Strength and dignity are her clothing and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. Proverbs 21:25-26Bible Verses for a new home. Dedicate your home with scripture.

The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-25Bible Verses for a new home. Dedicate your home with scripture.

Kid’s bathroom: It is not fancy hair, gold jewelry or fine clothes that should make you beautiful. No, your beauty should come from within you – the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit. This beauty will never disappear and is worth much more to God. 1 Peter 3:3-4

Decorating Your Home with Truth

You don’t have to be building a new house to apply this concept to your home. You can write verses during a renovation, or on the walls before you re-paint, or on the floors when you replace carpet or flooring.  Or, of course, add scripture out where everyone can see it in your home.  Here is some inspiration:

I also really like the idea of hanging a chalkboard where you can update your verses weekly so they don’t start to fade into the scenery, like decor that hangs year-round (see my DIY upcycled chalkboard here).DIY Chalkboard Art using Rust-Oleum Chalkboard Paint | Five Marigolds

    Oh my goodness, this is such a beautiful idea! We are finishing our basement right now and I’d love to do this before we put drywall up. I already scribbled little love notes and thank yous all over the place for my dad (who’s doing the majority of the work), but this would be sweet on a larger area where someone might see it someday!

    As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.

    Buy frames or make them…then either print verses or handwrite or paint them and embellish with florishes, leaves, flowers,….. Wonderful wedding or housewarming gift!
