As promised, here is another tool that I'm using to encourage myself. It is a theme based Scripture writing plan by Shannon over at Sweet Blessings. April's theme was "But God" I first heard about "But God" verses in a sermon by Pastor Dale. He said to pay attention when we read/hear "But God". Then, last week, I found Shannon's amazing Scripture writing plan. Talk about a God wink!
Saturday's Song Does it feel like your're facing another heartbreak day?
Here's the lyrics if you'd like to reflect more on them. Keep moving on my Dear Reader. Let me be honest. This. Quaratnine. Is. Tough. I'm struggling just like you are. I have days that I all I can do is sleep. I bet you have, too. I have days that I cry. I bet you have, too. I have lonely days. I bet you have, too. I have days that I am close to losing hope. I bet you have, too. My family has experienced great loss alone during this time. I bet some of you have as well. But God is faithful. He is here. He is trying to grow a new thing, a new me, a new you, a new world. The LORD is working through my church's sermons to keep me moving. Today's sermon made a few good points. Here is one of my takeaways. Whose voice will I listen to? Will I be like the person Pastor talked about who read the newspaper with the Bible next to them? They didn't let the newspaper tell them what was going to happen, instead they read what God had to say about the future. But God says.... Will I view circumstances through the lens of hope/hoplessness?
His sermon as well as his sermon notes are a huge part of my victorious journey via these times. Let's reach out and share what is getting us through this journey. Let's move toward victory and growth together. Let's move toward our LORD Jesus Christ. This week I will be sharing how God gave me one amazing tool that led to another amazing tool. Let's listen to Him and move with Him! Amen? Slow Stitching This week's slow stitching has been a mix of crochet and embroidery. The yarn is Mini Moochi by Crystal Palace Yarns and is color 105. I don't know the name, but I'll call it beautiful! It also has a special memory - my husband and I went on a special "buy what you want" visit to a yarn boutique. And, boy, did I ever indulge!
