Hello! It's time for a new Word Art Wednesday challenge. This week our focus verse is Psalm 92:13, "Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God." Christian maturity and flourishing is directly related to the amount of time spent in worship of the Lord. This worship takes place in your local church as well as in your personal quiet time with the Lord. You will never truly gain the maximum spiritual maturity without spending time alone with the Lord. This is where we receive the strength to meet the challenges we all face in our daily lives. It is sort of like a lamp does not work the way it was intended when it is not plugged into the power source. The Lord is our source of strength and we need that time with Him to truly flourish and grow. While there are many good devotional books available to help encourage us, the Bible must be the centerpiece in our personal devotions. When we remember that the Bible is God's love letter to us, it should make us want to open and read it with great anticipation.
For my card this week, I chose to make a top-folding mini slimline card. My folded card measures 3" x 5.5". Our sponsor this week is DRS Designs and the generously provided me with this Open Bible stamp. I stamped the Bible in brown in on kraft cardstock and then paper pieced the pages. A scrap of dark brown cardstock gives some definition to the center of the Bible. While you can't see it, there is also a Bible stamped on the inside for a little interior decorating.
