Trust in the Lord

This week at Word Art Wednesday the free scripture/word art is Psalm 62:8 which speaks of TRUST.  God's Word has much to say about trust.  As humans, we tend to want to take comfort in the things we know; such as people, place or memories that make us comfortable.  But God's Word tells us that we need to trust in Him.  God can give us strength when we are weak, a place to hide when we are scared, peace when we are worried, and it pleases Him when we place our trust in Him.  I hope that you will stop by Word Art Wednesday and play along in this week's challenge.
The Sister Site to Word Art Wednesday is Stampin' Sisters in Christ and their challenge this week is being sponsored by Tami Mayberry Stamps. I couldn't resist in playing along. Tami's stamps are absolutely darling. Here is the link to their challenge:

http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/make-it-monday-67-participants.html - Papertrey Ink - Make it Monday #67 - Mixing Patterned Papers.  I used my wonderful PTI heart border on this card and used three different patterned papers.

Never fail to trust in Him.  It's the only thing that I can count on 100% of the time.  People with disappoint you, memories will fade, places and situations change, but the love of the Lord is forever. Trust in Him.

Bessings,
Karen

  12. I love the props you used in combination with your card. It really brought it to life. Sometimes I get in too much of a hurry to post and don't stylize my photographs properly.
