ABC Scripture Challenge - Useful

Happy Friday! You would not believe the week I've had, my friends! I could tell you story after crazy story of what has gone on in my life this week, but I won't! lol You know how I can ramble, and you wouldn't even believe half of it! I'll just say that I'm incredibly happy to have this page completed for posting! :o)
Most of you have probably caught on my now that I really love my Bible! When Patter posted "useful" as the Challenge Word I knew right away that I would use this verse in 2 Timothy 3:16: "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."  Isn't that a great verse? The Bible is so full of instruction and training that can guide us in making right and good choices in our life. Did you know that the Bible is FULL of much more than just instructions for teaching us?  The Scriptures are also USEFUL if you are: worried, sad, have lost someone, are feeling discouraged, in pain, scared, in doubt, lonely, tempted, lost, sick, hurting, or searching. At the other end of the spectrum, the Scriptures are also USEFUL if you are: happy, joyful, thankful, at peace, full of praise and gratitude, or in love. The Bible is full of history, poetry, wisdom, songs, and life lessons; and I encourage you to see how USEFUL it can be in your life! It's my God-breathed guide book for life! :o)

This is just beautiful! Love the chipboard letters for the dimension, the flowers and bow for texture and the hand journaling and the colors rock! (I really don't like orange and there seems to be sooooo much of it this time of year :D ) Thanks for sharing! Blessings!
