Hi and welcome back to my blog; this week featuring Mustard Seed Faith Challenges and the book of Psalms! The Psalms contain prayers, petitions, thanksgivings, supplications, appeals for deliverance and help and many other poetic writings. The words were written with the purpose of being set to music with stringed instruments such as the harp, lyre, and lute.
Our challenge at Mustard Seed Faith is to make a baby card as the Psalms are like God's soothing lullaby to us.
We are also asked to choose one of our favorites to focus on and share with our cards. One of my favorite Psalms is Psalm 91...also featured on my last card entry on the front.
Another, Psalm 139, speaks to me especially when it comes to anxiety and soothing and these are just some of the excerpts. I would encourage you to read the entire Psalm.
"O Lord...Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence?...If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast..."
This Psalm would make a wonderful bedtime prayer and praise, wouldn't it?
I have my verse written out in chalk on a chalkboard to see when I awake at night with any anxious thoughts...it is always good to read God's word aloud and pray over it!
So for my card...my niece just had her first baby ...a boy...so I made this card to celebrate the new life with my niece and her husband.
I have had this stamp image from Lili of the Valley for quite some time...it is so adorable when colored in! I had a lot of fun with this card...adding the yellow gingham, buttons, and scalloped notecard die! It makes me wish I had more babies to fashion cards for!
Thanks so much for your visit today! I invite you to join in the challenge and visit our blog for a short devotional and to see all the fabulous Mustard Seed Faith Design Team creations!
