The phrase started rolling around in my mind a few months ago. Hero of my home. Hero of my home. What if women felt like they were the hero of their home?
Can I be honest – I don’t feel like the hero of my home all that often. When it comes to adding value to a family, sometimes I’m tempted to feel like I don’t offer much. I don’t make the best meals, I’m not crafty or spontaneous. I’m not the one you want to help with your homework and in general – my disposition isn’t just naturally light or cheery.
And I’ve got a choice to bemoan the fact that I’m not Mary Poppins or Cinderella OR I can start to agree with what God has said about me and what He’s written over me life. See, REALLY – I don’t want to be the hero of my home. In my whole life, not just in my home life, I want to leave people more in awe of GOD than I found them. I want Jesus to be the HERO of my home and when it’s all said and done – I want my people to be more impressed and enamored with Him than they are with me.
But I also want to acknowledge that He has put me in this place, with these people, on purpose. He’s called me to this family and these friends so that I can be an ambassador of His life, light, peace, grace, hope, and healing. And so in that respect, I’ve decided to trash the idea that I can never be the hero because I can’t make a pinterest-worthy roast chicken or because I’m not amazing at
folding fitted sheets. Instead, I’ve decided to take Him at His Word that He’ll equip me for the task at hand, and I’ve vowed to take my place as chief life-speaker, truth-believer, and hope-slinger within my community.
This summer, each week we’re going to bring you one new print that you can place somewhere in your home to remind you that while God is the ultimate hero – He’s made you His ambassador. We hope each new piece of art arms you with a weapon of spiritual warfare, to take your place as you battle defeat, discouragement, and any darkness that comes your way.
Are you ready? Are you ready for some weekly BEAUTIFUL reminders that you are the hero of your home? Are you ready to take your place? We think this might just start a revolution and we want you on the front lines with us.
Say it with me: I am the hero of my home.
I am here to set the temperature of worship and refreshment.
I have everything I need in Christ alone.
