The Writing on The Stairs

Through the several moves our family has had we have put scripture through the house in one way or another. In one house we had to put new floors in so we wrote scripture in sharpie before we laid the floor, in another house we wrote on the walls before we painted them. Sometimes it wasn't even scripture it would just be a prayer over the home and the family in it. So we got to do it in this house as well. We have some stair that needed the finishing touched but before we finished them mom had the kids write about something they learned. This time it was very neat, and different from anything we've done before.
They had learned about things that the enemy could slip into our lives...mostly things that start with the letter "S" and how we need to "Stomp" on Satan to keep those things out of our daily lives.The verse they based the words off of was Romans 16:20 which says "And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you Amen." They took sharpie and wrote all these words on the stairs to help them remember to stomp them out of our lives: Slowness, Sneakiness, Selfishness, Sadness, Sassiness, Sloppiness, Stubbornness, Stingyness, Sleepiness, and Slothfulness.
Daily we are remembering to stomp Satan under our feet by the power that the Lord gives us, to keep out those things that are written there. It's a great thing that our family loves to do, keep God in the foundation of the house in these little ways.

  1. When we built our house we put a few strips of paper with scripture on it up in various parts of the house, but by the time we finished, most of them had fallen of. The sharpie marker idea is good!
