So many times we find ourselves in situations where we feel very overwhelmed. We wonder, “Why, Lord?!?!?” We know God can change our situation, that He has the power to heal, deliver and save us, but why doesn’t He? We may even have a testimony of God’s deliverance in a similar situation, but this time is different. The Bible tells us that His grace is sufficient for us. Let me read this verse for you in the Amplified Version.
“But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for MY strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!”
Wow! Is that not powerful? Do you realize that no matter what situation we find ourselves in that God has already gone before us? That His grace is enough to keep us? That when we are at our weakest, He is working through us and strengthening us? That is when we are complete! To think that Christ, the Messiah, loves us enough to “pitch His tent over us and dwell over us”! That is so awesome! You can make it!!!
For the card, I started with a base of kraft cardstock and used paper from the granola Basic Grey paper pad. I printed the WORDart onto Bazzill cardstock and die cut it with a curved rectangle die. I added a strip of burlap fabric and tied some charcoal twine around it and then added one of my hoarded kraft buttons tied with twine. You can catch a peek of the inside of the card in the picture where I added a strip of the patterned paper.
Have a blessed day!
