The Challenge Word for Patter Cross's Weekly Scripture Challenge last week was "Power". If you've never heard of the Scripture Challenge before and would like to visit Patter's Blog 'Triple The Scraps' to see what its all about, just click on her blog title in my blog list on the right hand side of this page.
I'm always a week behind Patter's challenges, and rarely finish the first challenge before she posts another one! LOL! But anyway, LAST week Patter asked us to make a card that showed how His power is revealed in our own lives or in the Bible. The scriptures Patter chose were Nahum 1:3a "The Lord is slow to anger and great in power..." and Romans 1:16 "I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for salvation of everyone who believes'. The verse I chose for my card is from Phillipians 4:13 "I can do all things through HIM who strengthens me." For me, this verse shows the power of God in my life. I can't do anything on my own, (especially behave myself! LOL!) without the power of God in my life. I also used the mountain scene on my card because I believe the power of God is also shown in nature: the brillant sun and how powerful its rays are, the majesty of the mountains, the strength of tall trees, and the powerful bodies of water that can produce energy for good, or destroy anything in its path when nature unleashes her fury. Nature, to me, is a very visual example of God's power.
The stamp sets are both retired Stampin Up!. The sentiment is from 'Elegant Inspirations' and the nature images are from 'Wide Open Spaces.' As I write this and am looking at my card, I realized I should have shown the mountains reflecting in the water. Oh well, my mistake. I colored the images with Stampin Up! markers and used chalk for the water, sky, and sun. I tied a piece of hemp on the bottom for a rustic accent.
Next week's scripture challenge word is "LIGHT". I'm gonna love making that card! Imagine the possiblities! Hope to see you playing along. If you make a card, email a picture of it to me or let me know where its posted. I'd love to see it.
Till tomorrow, Amy
