Hello, Friends! I’m back again today with another challenge from the Stampin’ Sisters in Christ challenge blog! The title of this challenge is “Follow This Plan”. What plan? Well, I will explain that below. First, here is my card…the one I made for our DT to (hopefully!) provide a little inspiration for others to join in this week’s challenge.
Okay, here are all the specifics for this challenge (#147):
Hostess: the many-talented MariLynn!
Bible Verse she chose: Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” NIV
Theme: “Follow This Plan”
Requirements: Here is the PLAN! You must use (at least) ONE circle or oval + (at least) TWO DP’s (design papers) + (at least) ONE embellishment. That’s not too hard to do! You have until 11:59 PM Saturday, July 14 to enter! One random winner will receive a prize from our…
I have used one of their pre-colored digital images from the set called “Bunny Friends” and the sentiment is also from the same set. I love the ease of using their images because 1) I was very short on time and didn’t have to color this one, and 2) the images and sentiments can be resized to fit any layout!
Jeremiah 29:11 is one of my favorite verses, an excellent one to remember when facing an unknown future…which is what we all do every day(!)… but especially when we go through trials and perhaps feel that God has forgotten us or no longer cares about us. I like to print this verse on graduation cards to remind the graduate that God DOES have a plan for them and goes with them into a sometimes scary or demanding future. For many different situations this is a wonderful verse to encourage and give hope…after an accident, a job lay-off, a sudden illness, a chronic illness, or even a promotion or graduation. The implication in the first part of the verse is that we must TRUST God…HE knows the plan and the future…WE don’t really need to know it…we just need to trust HIM…and His all-sufficient love and grace. Now that’s a GOOD PLAN!
Please join us this week and enter a card or project in our challenge! You can also visit the other DT “sisters” for more inspiration/ideas by clicking on their names in my sidebar. And MariLynn has a few devotional thoughts to read on her site, as well as the main blog: Stampin’ Sisters in Christ.
