Everybody needs love and acceptance, right? Everyone needs reassurance and affirmation throughout their life, right? As a child, we need to hear from our parents that we are loved and that we are doing a good job at...whatever it may be. As a parent, or teacher, employee, etc....most of us have a desire to feel like we are doing something good. Praise from others is very important to our self-worth. I will get to the point now......if we were made in God's image, don't you think that He would enjoy the same type of praise that we feel is so important to us? After all, He created ALL THINGS and has provided ALL that we will ever need. He provided His son to save us. Not only should we be filled with gratitude, but we should tell Him how great He is....how powerful He is......there is none like Him......He is the great I AM!!!!!!
So.....this leads me to the subject of this week's Bible Verse Thursday Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts....use any verse to PRAISE HIM!!!! I have used Psalm 47:2 from Our Daily Bread designs' Scripture Collection 3 along with Vine Borders, Basic Grey "Green at Heart" designer paper, pearls by Zva Creative, gingham ribbon tied with a Bow Easy, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Martha Stewart Flower Bed Border Punch, and MANY layers of my addiction, Pearl Glimmer Mist!!!
Also, from Christian Paper Crafts this week, I have used Gloria's Sketch Tuesday Challenge and Jen's Color Monday Challenge to use orange plus any other colors in honor of her 40th birthday. Tomorrow, Cindy will have something fun for everyone to try for her Fun on Friday Challenge. Mary will be featuring another stamper's gallery on Case Artist Saturday, plus she hosts the Scripture Saturday Scrapbook challenge.....you'll have to check them out!! Lots of fun and lots of worship going on at the same time!! And don't forget Natalie's Book of John bible study and Marcelle's Daily Bread devotionals several times a week, plus Lynn's Journaling Questions and Cassandra's Altered for Him tag giveaways each Wednesday. Most importantly, Christian Paper Crafts is a wonderful place to "hang out" with other Christian ladies....I am inspired and encouraged daily by all of my wonderful friends there.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Stay tuned Saturday for Our Daily Bread designs Blog Hop and New Releases....yay!!!
