Our Help, Psalm 124:8


Psalm 124:8 is one of the Bible verses I turn to when I face trials or discouragements. It reminds me that God is the Creator and He is always available to help me.  Since God created the heavens and the earth, my problems are very small tasks for Him.  I was reminded of this in my weekly Waterlilyz table recently as we read Genesis 1.  The verse that spoke to me most and a few other ladies was Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."  I'm so amazed that God, the Creator of heaven and earth, loves us so much that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross and be resurrected to redeem us from sin and death.  Because of God's great love, He wants to be invited into every aspect of our lives and wants us to know that we are never alone as He is always with us!

This card was made using the sketch from ODBDSLC83 Sketch Challenge and the colors are from Color Throwdown 166.  I don't have Baja Breeze ink or paper at the moment so I substituted with my stash of Soft Sky.   I distressed the edges of the DP and sponged it with Crumb Cake ink.  The flower is made using SU's Triple Treat Flower, Vanilla Hodge Podge Hardware, and punches.  The bow came out quite puffy so when it comes time to mail this card off to someone I'm going to have to use a larger padded envelope and extra postage.
