Psalm 31:24 WORDart

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love this verse! It speaks so much encouragement to me. When I am studying my Bible, I like to have my dictionary right beside me so I can look up words. I find that even when I think I know what a word means, reading the definition in the dictionary can make me look at it in a whole new way. I want to share with you the definitions of the following words:

courage - the strength of mind that makes one able to meet danger and difficulties with firmness

strengthen - to make, grow, or become stronger

hope - to desire especially with expectation that the wish will be granted

Wow! That tells me that I can face life’s difficulties head on and He will make me to become stronger, but I need to have a desire for Him and an expectation that He will see me through whatever the situation is that I am facing. He promised us He would never leave us or forsake us. I need to trust in that promise and know that He knows what is best for me and what will make me stronger.

You can find this WORDart file HERE or HERE.

The file is in black and white in both png and jpg. There are instructions on how to change the color in my right sidebar under the logo. If you chose to use this file, please link back to this post so others know it is available to them also. I would love to see what you create with it if you would like to leave a link to your creation in my comments, I would love that.
