Struggling to feel the love of the Lord when you leave your church? These tips help you bring spirituality into your home so you can feel closer to God all week long. Keeping religion going outside of church takes a lifelong dedication that many people don’t have. If you are a Christian, then you know the difficulties of keeping your family under the watchful eye of the Almighty. It is far too easy to stray from the path, particularly as a teenager.
These top tips can help you bring the church into your home, reminding everyone gently of their moral obligations and responsibilities to one another. Using Christianity and these tips, you can fill your house with love.
How to Bring Spirituality into Your Everyday Life?
Bringing your spirituality into your everyday life means bringing it with you to the places you spend time. It means bringing a cross on long journeys or hanging one from the rear-view mirror in your vehicle. It means bringing the cross to work or decorating your desk and office booth with pictures which reflect the light and life you feel on the inside. A picture of the Lord above your bed or in your living room serves as a gentle reminder that he sees all.
Tips to Bring Spirituality into your Home Life
Try these tips to make your home life more spiritual.
1. Add the Virgin Mary
No matter how big the room is, bringing in Virgin Mary statues will add to the spiritual atmosphere of the space. Place a single large statue in your living area, or position smaller statues throughout the home. Our Lord’s mother is a holy symbol of nurturing love. There is no more perfect religious symbol to keep in your home, where nurturing and love are the key elements of a happy house.
2. The Holy Trinity
God has three parts. The Holy Trinity has many visual representations, but the best is the holy cross itself. When we cross ourselves, we honor those three parts of God: the father, the son, and the holy ghost. Placing crosses throughout your home, vehicle, office, or clubhouse reminds you of that action. It reminds us of how Jesus died for our sins and of how we can make up for it in this life and the next.
3. Add a Prayer Nook
You can set aside a space in your house that is specifically for praying. Fill it with the incense associated with the church (Frankincense, for example) and with bibles and other works. Create it in as silent a place as you can, so you can use it for periods of meditative reflection over the word of God.
4. Create an Altar
You can use the Virgin Mary statues or crosses to build your own altar, within the home. This is a spiritual practice in use since Ancient Roman and Greek times. Home altars, although no longer in fashion, are the perfect way to worship from home.
A Spiritual Life starts at Home
If you can accommodate Christianity in the home, you will never forget that Jesus watches over you.
