Say It With Scripture Challenge #6 - Hebrews 4:16

This card is for the Say It With Scripture Challenge #6 at the Sweet 'n Sassy Connection.

So many times in life we act boldly when we should be meek and quiet and we ruin things.  There are definitely times that it is appropriate to be bold. This verse tells us about one of those times.  We are to approach the Throne of Grace with boldness.  Is this a demanding type of boldness that says, "You WILL give me my way!"?  No, it's a boldness that shows our right to approach God the Father to ask for His help and mercy.  Just as  children have a right to go to their earthly Father for help and protection, so too we have the right to go to our Heavenly Father for His help.  Instructing us to approach the Throne of Grace boldly, means that we're not "bothering" Him.  Just like loving earthly fathers, He loves to help us.  That is a thought that just boggles my mind. As the song says, "Why should He love me so?"

 You can't really tell but I used a Sakura glitter pen on the floral design in the background paper.  It gives a nice, subtle shimmer to the paper.  I used MOJO200 for the sketch.  The butterflies are paper pieced and only attached in the center so that the wings can be lifted for some dimension.
