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!

Lords Unfailing Love

Happy Wednesday!

Today I have a card using a set that came out on Black Friday this past year called Courage and Strength.  I love this beautifully scripted image of encouragement.

I stamped the image in black ink and colored a little with pencils.

The "frame" was created using the Blushing Rose Paper Collection and an oval die. I love this designer paper with the pretty little roses.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations' Blog to see all the beautiful creations by this designers this week! We also have new designers on the team so be sure to check out them out too!

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
