Category: encouraging verses
|ok. so, as mentioned before in a couple different posts,this year, i am “refocusing and renewing” my relationship with Christ this year.
to encourage this process,
i am participating in a few different scripture challenges.
(of course, it also qualifies for my sunday scrappin)
the above layout is my first for the Scripture Challenge at faithsisters.com
the words for this week were “faith & kindness”.
the verses that i chose: Psalm 145:17 & James 2:26
i did some cloud layering with the owls. love the owls!!
pleated some ribbon at the bottom.
|i am also participating in the His Holy Name Challenge at faithsisters.com this week’s name was “holy”.
i chose: Revelation 4:8b & Isaiah 6:3b
loved using the thicker stickers for holy. loooove those.
|another challenge, over at LPMblog for scripture memorization. the verse i chose to memorize was: Psalm 51:10.
i kept this memory verse layout, small, like baseball card size.
easy to attach to a ring and keep with me, to refresh my memory when learning each verse.
|i didn’t want to use too many embellishments. wanted to keep it more flat, so that it could easily be portable. plus, i want the scripture to be the key point, without embellishments distracting from it.
well, that is how i spent my sunday afternoon.
of course now, i am watching Big Ben with my hubby….go Steelers!!!
|i’ve been thinking a lot about something that ali edwards mentioned in her blog.
choosing a word for 2009.
a word that sums up what you want for yourself this coming year.
i thought this would be easy. i thought a word would just jump out at me.
but it didn’t. i’ve been thinking about it…looking up words…scriptures etc….
i finally narrowed it down to two.
refocus & renew.
2008 was a year that i really focused on getting healthy. losing weight. exercising. making healthy eating choices.
but one thing that always got pushed to the bottom of my to-do list, was my quiet time wtih God.
in 2009, i would like to refocus my energy and renewing my relationship with Christ.
daily making the choice to create time to spend alone with him.
of course these words can also be applied to other areas of my life also, but i really want my main focus to be on Him. knowing that, when we put our eyes on Christ, everything else should fall into place.
in order to encourage this change, i have found a few challenges that i am going to do.
think about it.
it’s more than just a resolution.
what will be your focul point this year??
