Our heavenly Father waits with strong and open arms to receive us whenever we need Him. He will never turn us away. Sometimes we are at a distance, communicating with Him, believing Him. Then there are those times when we need to run to Him with complete abandon, call out His name and jump into those arms to be near His heart and feel His protective embrace around us. He delights our in our need of Him.
God is always ready to accept our need of Him and work on our behalf. He is always accessible and always moving in our lives for our good. He watches over us, stands at our right hand, intimately knows us and our need. He will neither slumber nor turn from us. He will always have eyes to see us and arms to hold us.
Since Jesus instructed His disciples, believers have experienced trouble here on this earth. In fact, He said the world would hate us. Christian brothers and sisters are being tortured and killed in some parts of the world just because they are believers. Even here in our country, we see contempt and intolerance for Christians growing. We need not fear. God is for us, He moves toward us to keep us in His arms, and we can trust that God is more than enough for anything we face. He may not remove trouble from us, but we can rest assured He will hold us through it all.
For these pages I used chalks to color the background, SU inks for stamping and Copics for coloring. I set my work with hairspray so the chalks wouldn't dust off. I combined the following Sweet 'n Sassy stamps. More will be released this month and you will absolutely love them for Bible journaling.
