Hello September… We made it through the Summer! We are thankful to be able to do lots of outdoor activities in the Summer until the school started 2 weeks ago. I hope your Summer been great, too!
New month, it means new challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles blog. Every month, they have 3 challenges:
- Scripture Inspiration Challenge
- Scrapbook Sketch Challenge
- Card Sketch Challenge
This month, I play along with their Scripture Inspiration Challenge – Psalm 103:1-2.
When I read this passage, I felt in my heart to journal the Psalm 103:1-5
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
God has blessed me more that I ever imagine. In the last several days, I felt so overwhelmed and felt dried inside. I got distracted by lots of things that I did not realize they replaced my God. My To-Do list became the first thing I wanted to check every morning I woke up. They drained me.
I cried out to my GOD, “O LORD, I need You, now”
When I read this passage, the Holy Spirit touched my heart and opened my eyes to see how all the busyness replaced my time with my God and His Word. I repented. I asked for His forgiveness and asked Him to renew me.
Only God can satisfy me. On by His power I can rise up to bless his name. Only Him that I need.
I love how God works and speaks to us. We only need to ready to listen. I am so THANKFUL!
On my journaling page I used Metallic Gelatos and blended them with baby wipe. And then I used Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens to write the journal and hand-lettering. The stickers and washi are from Documented Faith by Stephanie Ackerman.
And… I also play along with their Card Sketch Challenge. Here’s my take on this sketch:
I used the new Hero Arts Color Layering – Grateful Leaves stamp set and die and digital sentiment from Autumn Sentiment Card Frame and Printable Sentiment by The Cutting Cafe. And the patterned papers I used are from ekSuccess brand Fall theme paper pad from Walmart.
