Even though I am no longer on the DT for Stampin' Sisters in Christ, I am very excited about it making it a year. I love the site and what it stands for. And have you been to the site lately...it is looking so cute! :) So, since SSIC is turning 1, they are having a blog hop which includes all of the current and past DT. I thought that was very neat to include us as well. :)
So if you came from Randi's blog, then you are in the right place. If not, why not start the hop at the beginning right here. (There are prizes to be won!)
Each of us was asked to create a project based on your favorite Bible verse(s). Here are the verses I choose:
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:28-31 (NIV)
And here is the project that I made:
Those verses have been my favorite for as long as I can remember. I know I am not alone when I say that there are times when I just feel weary. I'm kinda there right now in fact. Tired. Busy. Just plain weary. But God has told us that HE will give us strength. I believe we need only ask and change our focus to Him! He can handle our lives and our problems better then we can. Come...all who are weary. But you know what is involved with coming to God...with placing our hope in Him. It's the T word...you know the one....time. When we change our focus from earthly things...from our own lives and just spend time with Him....things seem to fall into perspective...and we do feel renewed. Did you hear what He says...He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak! Wow! Why wouldn't you want some of that! :) I need Him right now. And I am so glad that I will have this reminder on my wall.
