CPC Blog Hop - Give Thanks to the Lord

Well good morning ladies!  It is already time for the blog hop at Christian Paper Crafts and the theme of this hop is Give Thanks to the Lord! 
And, I want to thank my Lord for what He has done for me!  So I decided to make a card using the verse God gave me when I use to worry about everything.  When I read this verse, I realized that God wanted me to give all my worry and anxiety to Him.  So every time I felt the anxiety or worry consuming me, I would quote this verse and then say, "Lord you are the only one who can take care of this and the only one that can take this anxiety away, so here it is Lord back in your hands."  I eventually learned that I could not handle the problems, but God could and could give me peace at the same time.  I also learned that when I tried to do things on my own, wow, what a mess I would make, but when I allowed God to be in control and lead me things sure turned out a lot better and I could lay my head down at night in peace.  So now "with thanksgiving", I can present my request to the one God that can take care of it all!  So here is my card:


Isn't this a great verse!  I also am using this card for two other challenges.  The challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs Blog is all about cards with TAG! T= Thankful, A= Appreciation, G= Grateful. You can use an actual tag, create a card that is thankful, shows appreciation, or conveys gratefulness, or you can combine a tag with the themes.  Hopefully my card show all three as I am Thankful, I do Appreciate what God has and is doing for me and I am so very Grateful!  Also the Bible Verse Thursday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts is to make a project using this verse or another verse which follows the theme of receiving God's peace through prayer.

Here is a close up of the verse!


And, here is a side view of the card!
