Hymn and Scripture Challenge #7 - Trust Him When Thy Wants Are Many

Hello, my friends!
It's been quite a week around here! My poor husband and I have both been suffering with the worst flu bug EVER! This was absolutely NOT in my schedule! lol At least it's not the week before the wedding, right? :o)
I am so sorry that I haven't been up to visiting any of you but I hope to jump back into blog land soon! I also hope to get back to work on my next Creative Inspirations DT project. Yes, it's another mini did you guess! lol
I was finally up to doing something creative today, so I jumped (no actual jumping) right in with my overdue page for the Hymn and Scripture Challenge. It's something a bit different for me but I hope you enjoy it. I saw a similar  technique on youtube and just had to try it. I used an assortment of chipboard letters from my stash and laid out my title on white cardstock. Then I used a few mists and randomly sprayed over-top of them. After drying with my heat tool I removed the letters. Then I used a variety of stamps and inks and just kept layering. I hand-wrote the rest of the words for the title, matted them, and popped them up on dimensionals. Then I did the same with the Scripture verses. I added some layered butterflies and adhered them. I didn't bother to add any bling because there is such shimmer to the entire page!

Perhaps you can see some of the shimmer in this photo:

Well, this is a hymn that I am not at all familiar with. In fact, I couldn't find it in any of the hymnals or websites I searched. So I have no sheet music for this one...or even a video to share. I must tell you that I will now add this hymn to my "favorites" list based on the words alone! They are absolutely wonderful! I have hand-written all the verses and added it to the back of my page. I know that the colors do not match the front of the page at all but I wanted to use this particular ledger paper because I really needed the lines today! lol I'm sure I've mentioned it before but I always like to hand-write the things that are important to remember. The words of this song are SO important to remember! Please read them:

One more Scripture verse I would like to share with you is found in Philippians 4:19, it says:

"And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of  His glory in Christ Jesus."

I actually have a note in my Bible regarding Philippians 4:10-19 that is dated August 1984. It states that the promise found in this passage is like receiving a blank cheque signed by God Himself. Why do we waste so much time and energy on worries and doubts? God's provisions are ALWAYS greater then our problems!

Much JOY and LAUGHTER to you ALL! :o)

Thank you so much for sharing this today! It is just what I needed! My family is dealing with some difficult issues (physical) and I really needed the encouragement to trust wholly on Christ Jesus the Lord! Love the hymn!
