Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!


I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

  10. Kathy, first of all, thank you for the scripture verse! I recently lost my father and 4 days later my 4 y/o grandson was rushed to children's hosp. very sick and remained there for 8 days! (Thankfully, he is better and at home now but my mind and heart has been through a lot lately!)
    I enjoy cardmaking and this hop just "happened" to find its way to me today so I thought I would take advantage of the distraction. So glad I saw your scripture verse!
    Secondly, your card is truly amazing, the sentiment is wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
