What I’ve Learned From 40 Years of HIS Mercy and Loving Kindness ENDURING

What I’ve Learned From 40 Years of HIS Mercy and Loving Kindness ENDURING
This might offend some, but I cannot complete my husband and he cannot complete me. Unlike many popular songs, we are not equipped to complete each other… Only Christ can do that! We can complement each other. We can even balance out each other’s weaknesses and when we are allowing the Spirit of God to flow through us to each other and the others around us, HIS Mercy and Loving kindness are the spotlight! We make a powerful team when we function like that.

He Will Perfect That Which Concerns Me

He Will Perfect That Which Concerns Me

David had repeated encounters of having his enemies on all sides. He had been surrounded by danger. He knew tragedy. And David knew the depths of great sorrow over his own sin and the grief over the weight of the consequences birthed from those sins. And yet, he could write this psalm with great confidence!  

“The Lord will perfect that which concerns me.
Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, endure forever -
forsake not the works of Your own hands”  Psalm 138:8

How 1 Peter 5:7 Helped One of Our Friends Through a Difficult Time

One of my favorite things about this ministry (that I also get to call my job!) is hearing customer testimonials, and testimonials in general about the products I make.

One of our long-time customers, Monica, shared part of her testimony with us. Since we knew our focus this week would be on 1 Peter 5:7, we asked if we could feature it in our blog.

Proverbs 3:5 & 6 - Having a Healthy Distrust of Self

Proverbs 3:5 & 6 - Having a Healthy Distrust of Self

Proverbs 3:5 & 6 gives us these reminders that almost seem like steps in a recipe. Reminding us:

  1. WHO to put our trust in 
  2. The need for a FULL commitment of spirit, soul and body
  3. To Trust God not only in salvation, but ALL areas of life
  4. A healthy distrust of self is acknowledging that we don’t know what’s best
  5. Turning over every area of our life to His control… laying down our Self-will to embrace His will

What IS Peace Anyway? 

I think this is a really important question to be able to answer. Read this week's blog as I share a few thoughts that I have, as well as a few verses that I hope encourage you. And you will even find some helpful tips for next time you are lacking peace.

I was reading the Tony Evans Bible Commentary to see what Dr. Evans had to say about these verses.  He describes it this way: “Peace is harmony on the inside always in every way–that is, regardless of your circumstances.”

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." James 4:8

The beach is often the birthing place of many of my designs, especially when I need to create a big batch of artwork. The ocean helps me tune out the everyday responsibilities of my crazy life to refocus on my calling. I’ve noticed that when my mind gets calm, my “eyesight” is crisper and my hearing is clearer. Which is basically what the verses on these designs are about!

4 Things about Sheep and Shepherds That Can Bring You Comfort Today

4 Things about Sheep and Shepherds That Can Bring You Comfort Today

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." | John 10:11

In verse 11, Jesus describes Himself as the “Good Shepherd who laid down His life for His sheep”. I imagine the Shepherd laying His body over His precious sheep taking the deathly blows with His own body. The Good Shepherd by exchanging places with His precious sheep, accepted death to preserve His sheep’s life.
