Moving or buying a new home can be fun, but it can also be stressful. Don’t let the stresses of the moving process steal your joy. God wants us to have safe, comfortable places to live. So whether you’re moving your family across the country for a job change, buying a vacation home, or going to college and getting your first apartment, get God involved! Read and pray about these Bible verses, no matter what stage you’re at in the moving process.
