I am so sorry...I had this post scheduled to publish this morning at 8am Pacific time...just got back from Megan's doctor appointment and saw it didn't publish for some reason. I'll have to check and see why not. In anycase, a great big Texas howdy to ya' all....from Houston! It's May 8th and that means it's time to post our Divine Design Projects! I chose Proverbs 3:5-6 this month. After praying about which scripture to focus on this month, I kept coming back to this one. It's one I know well and love. It's taken on new meaning for me in light of my daughter's health issues. I know many of you also experience uncertain and challenging circumstances in your lives. Let's face it, sometimes life just doesn't make sense. For those times (and all the time), we're reminded to trust God with ALL our heart and not to rely on OUR understanding. God has promised to make the path straight. He hasn't promised to share all the details with us on how that will take place. He simply directs us to trust Him. He is worthy of that trust and that's where I'm placing my confidence.Alrighty then...the other Scripture Chick's are also posting their projects this morning...be sure to mosey on over to their awesome blogs & check it out ~
- Lori Craig ~ Make A Difference
- Angel Wilde ~ Angelosity
- Jami Sibley ~ More isMore
- Taylor Van Bruggen ~ Taylored Expressions
I also make a bookmark for my daughter, Megan, each month. She normally selects her own scripture, but this month, she asked me to chose one for her. Here it is ~Psalm 56:3, "When I am afraid, I will trust in you". It's short, but powerful. The anecdote to fear....is trust in God : ) !!!
I hope you'll consider playing along with the Divine Design challenge... Click HERE to see all the details for the challenge. You can jump in anytime...and start making a project each month. I print most of my scrptures on the computer, so don't worry if you don't have scripture stamps. I do have some awesome scripture stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs, but sometimes, like this month, I wanted to use a scripture that I don't have a stamp for (yet)...so I just print it. You can upload your project to SCS using the keywords BVC08. There is a HUGE gallery of beee-a-utiful Divine Design projects over at SCS and you can see 'em all right HERE!
