Divine Faithfulness BVC# 3

I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples. For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Psalm 57:9-10

Sorry, I'm a little late in posting this morning. You don't want to hear all the details, but lets just say, life is full of challenges! Hey, it's March 8th...Divine Design day = ) !! I love these projects! This is my card and scripture for the month. God is faithful and loving. Sometimes that's hard to wrap our minds around when life brings uncertainly and challenge. I've been reading in Psalms this month for my devotions and I've been reminded of God's unfailing love & faithfulness! To see more about the Divine Design Monthly Challenge & how it all got HERE to see the January posting! Here are the links to the other Scripture Chicks and their awesome March projects~

My daughter, Megan, chose a wonderful scripture from Romans. She's selecting a scripture each month & I'm making a bookmark for her. I can't seem to get a decent photo of this one. I've tried on a variety of days in various lighting...but this is the best I can get (sorry!). It really is pretty irl, but you'll have to take my word for it = ) ~

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials. For we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation, and this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with His love. Romans 5:3-5

Megan know about problems and trials, as well as endurance. She's a distance runner, at college on scholarship to run...but since arriving at college 18 months ago, she's been faced with a variety of personal & athletic challenges, including one illness and injury after another that has prevented her from competing or training to her full potential. All of this has been entirely beyond her control, so as you can imagine, it's been pretty frustrating for her. As you can see by the scripture she chose, her heart is steadfast for the Lord. Even amidst the disappointments, she still loves God with all her heart and chooses to trust Him, one day at a time.

I wanted to thank you so much for this posting today. It couldn't have come at a better time. I am going through the most challenging period of my life right now and have been struggling to understand why God would send this my way. The passage your daughter used reminds me that there is a reason behind it all, and I just need to be strong and let God see me through. Thank you!!

Angel W said...

Nancy - both projects are really wonderful! The verse in Psalms is such a beautiful reminder and it's very refreshing also to see scripture through a college student's eyes.

I'm praying that the Devine Design Challenge will continue as a regular monthly design from here on....
I am making them for myself and for my prayer partner, and as you know "Prayer Never Ceases" so please continue this challenge. The beauty of the design and the Power of the Words....are a feast to the eye and a wonderful help to memorizing. THANK YOU

I love Casting Crows and thank you for sharing the video!

It's taken me three months of oohing and ahhing at the wonderful projects before I felt ready to take the plunge! Thank you and the other scripture chicks for providing such a wonderful inspiring monthly challenge! I'm determined to do one this month!

Megan's scripture choice is a great reminder for me this week for sure!
