I am so excited to be doing the Glory Art Rewind 2018 Challenge this year with Patter at Triple the Scraps. This is my first time in about 2 years and I just wanted to start using my new journaling Bible and I thought what better time to start than with this Challenge. To learn more about this challenge you can check it out here. Glory Art Rewind 2018 Links here. And this is her link for her Study for Example here. You will not want to miss this study, so please check it out.
This is my first time ever journaling in a Bible, so I am not quite as creative as I hope to be as I learn more. But today this verse stood out to me for this first challenge using the word Example! 1 Timothy 3:14b but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Wow, that is a big job for the believer or maybe just for me, because I find myself quite often saying things I wish I could take back, not showing people love, but judging - Yikes. I am having to pray all the time for God to let me be the example that He has called me to be. And this verse says it all.
My prayer is for God to give me the strength and the power to show His love, His conduct, His speech, His purity in everything I do each and every day. I always think of Paul here when he said, "Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ." 1 Corinthians 11:1. You see that is what I want; for people to see Christ in me and to want what I have. Lord help me.
Here is my creation for "Example." Hope it speaks to you as it spoke to me.
I hope in the future I can get more creative, but for now I will just let God speak through His Word.
Have a great weekend my friends.
