Bible Verse Thursday "REJOICE!"


This week's Bible Verse Thursday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts is to choose any verse with the word "Rejoice". I also ask that you search your heart and share reasons why you "Rejoice" in your own life. The verse I chose, Philippians 4:4, from ODBD's "Christmas Verses", along with that ENTIRE CHAPTER, reminds us that no matter what we have, we should be content because we have Him. Verse 13 reminds us that we can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us and verse 19 assures us that God supplies ALL of our needs. There are so many things in my own life for which I am grateful; many things which cause me to "Rejoice", but the number one reason to rejoice is the hope that we have through Jesus Christ!!

This card was such a joy to make....starting with a verse like this, how could it NOT be a joy?! The layout comes from the Sweet Stop Sketch this week, plus the Stamping Sisters In Christ challenge is to make an encouraging card with a reminder that God is always there for you....I thought this verse was perfect for a reminder of just that!
