Hiding Scripture in Your Heart with a Tool, Prayer Reminder Cards

Hiding Scripture in Your Heart with a Tool, Prayer Reminder Cards

As child, I used flash cards to learn the letters of the alphabet and math facts. I studied the cards, drilled with cards, and repeated the process again & again until I was able to recite the alphabet or my math facts... And to this day, I can still recite the alphabet and MOST of my math facts from all those years ago! We are NEVER too old to learn! 

In Lemonade Creative Hearts we have just started a new series learning The Names of The Holy Spirit. We wanted to share a sneak peek inside one of our lessons. AND! Give you access to one of this month's traceables!

Praying for God's Will While Living In a Selfish World

Praying for God's Will While Living In a Selfish World
I came into this world wanting my way. I wanted it when I wanted it and how I wanted it. [ I realized I needed to start ] making it part of my daily prayers that God will direct my "want to" to line up with what He wants for my life.

Lord, TRAIN my heart to WANT the things you want for me.
Lord, TRAIN my heart to have a distaste for anything that doesn’t line up with YOUR will.
Lord, TRAIN my heart to TRUST YOUR Gracious Spirit wherever You lead me.

Why Scripture Journaling Is Important To Me

Why Scripture Journaling Is Important To Me

Teaching women how they really do have creativity inside of them... planted by the Creator Himself! By teaching you how to work with your own handwriting with very simple steps to enhance it... Teaching you that the discipline of practice applied to lettering and journaling Bible Verses can actually help you memorize the verses. 

The scripture lettering that I do in my journals helps me ZERO in on the verse, helping me write it on my heart. But many times it doesn’t end with the finished lettering, it goes a step further and becomes a prayer.  

Jehovah Jireh - The Lord Will Provide

Jehovah Jireh - The Lord Will Provide

Learning the names of God leads us to understanding Gods character and His ways. Understanding God's character and His ways helps our overall well being. Renewing our mind with the Truths in God's Word about who He is will make it easier to line our decisions up with Truth. And when our decisions line up with the Truth of who God is, every area of our life is affected!

Sweet Friend, Jehovah Jireh sees you. He cares about you. He will provide for you!

Boasting In the Name of the Lord - God our Father

Boasting In the Name of the Lord - God our Father

Did you know that in the Hebrew language boast means to “have confidence in” or “trust in” something or someone?

With this in mind, when I re-read Psalm 20:7 and replaced the word boast with trust, it is so much easier to understand and apply it to my own circumstances. I can ask myself who or what am I “trusting”? Who or what am I typically using as “a means of escape”? Yes, asking yourself these things can be convicting… But that is a GOOD thing! With conviction, comes the opportunity to repent/turn away and receive forgiveness and freedom! And that is a wonderful BLESSING!

Top 3 Things I Learned About Women at my First Retail Show of 2022
What I learned this weekend was really a reminder of what I already knew! I received a fresh refill of faces to add to my memories. So that when I write the next blog, or social media post it’s her face I write for…  When I paint the next picture, I now have a beautiful face that I’m thinking of… When I choose the verses, it’s her circumstances I’m remembering…

A Sneak Peek at this Month's Box: June - Praying to the God of Hope

A Sneak Peek at this Month's Box: June - Praying to the God of Hope

"May the God of Hope so fill you with Joy & Peace in believing that by the Power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be bubbling over with Hope." Romans 15:13

Freedom is not free, it comes with a price! Just as each of us was bought at a price: the price of Our Savior laying down His life so that we may be FREE! Free from sin, Free from death, Free from the weight of our own destructive nature.

"So if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed." John 8:36

Verses To Help Guide You When Praying For Direction

Verses To Help Guide You When Praying For Direction

Psalm 139: 23 & 24 can be used as a prayer as well, asking the Holy Spirit to sort through our motives and intentions. We aren’t always the best judge of our own heart, but He is! “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my concerns. See if there is any offensive way in me; lead me in the everlasting way.”

All of these verses bring reassurance to my heart and mind, especially when I am praying for direction. I’ve often asked Him to make my heart, my mind and my desires line up with His. Basically, to make me want what He wants for me! And to give me a distaste for anything that is not of Him.

How to Use Discomfort for GOOD!

So, friend, receive the comfort from these powerful verses [of Psalm 139], BUT I also want to encourage you that even the discomfort can be useful! Welcome the blessing of the vehicle that leads you to the foot of the Cross!  

“Search me (thoroughly), O God, and know my heart!  Try me and know my thoughts!  And see if there is any wicked or hurtful way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23 & 24 Amplified

5 Tips for Praying Psalm 139 Over Your Life

5 Tips for Praying Psalm 139 Over Your Life
Each month here at From the Heart Art we have a monthly focus; Psalm 139 is our focus for the Month of May. It's been so exciting to plan out our month and look for every opportunity possible to utilize the powerful verses from this Psalm. We have used it in our Lemonade Reminder Encouragement Kit, we will use it in our weekly focal verses sent to our newsletter subscribers and all of May’s Creative Hearts lessons are centered around the verses in Psalm 139. Even with all that, it still feels like there is so much left that we didn’t get to cover! It’s definitely a chapter to settle down in and park there for a while. Just let your heart soak in the rich words!

Sharing Christ - Keeping Scripture on Hand

Sharing Christ - Keeping Scripture on Hand

"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others." Philippians 2:3-4

For most Christians, I believe it's natural for us to want to share; share love, share kindness, share time and especially share what God has done for us. We naturally feel the calling on our hearts to share, which is what God wants us to do! He wants us to share His Word, His Truth, and His Love. You never know what opportunities He will have for us, so we encourage you to take every opportunity you can!
