The Beginning

Starting doing beading in @1995 after getting alcohol poisoning while out partying with friends. It is a talent that God gave me to keep me from trying to kill myself (literally through binge drinking and then driving while drunk) From broken to Reborn, from lost to Found, God gave me this talent to make jewelry and I didn't realize how relevant it was to my life until I was listening to the radio praising God and this song came on (of course I forgot the name and such) but it talked about taking the old and making it new again. God did that with me as I do that with my jewelry! I love taking old broken pieces and recreating something new and exciting. If the necklace doesn't have earrings with it, I can make some to go with it. Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of death. vs 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. It only through Jesus can we be truly changed, He alone has all power to deliver us from the bondage of sin and give us new life.

Do Not Be Overcome By Evil

Once again, God is working in His wonderfully mysterious ways! When I throw this graphic and verse together, I didn't know about the weekend challenge of red and lime in Faith in heART. I just picked it because I liked it and have been on a floral kick lately. Plus I don't like using just a "plain" background. Sometimes the verses will have something I can find and attach like deer or apples. Something that is stuck in my head lately - "Everything (Evil and Sin) didn't start because of an apple".... but because of Eve "ate" from the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. What if ate just means that she sampled, tasted of the KNOWLEDGE...as in she read,or looked at pictures of how things could happen if you doubt God's plan.
The verses today touch on this EVIL..the thoughts of REVENGE and AVENGING.
Human nature is to pay like for like. We seek to hurt those who hurt us...no matter how small and usually insignificant it truly matters to OUR life.
Instead of seeking God, we mull over how hurt we have been. We lick our wounds and allow them to fester, boiling over into other parts of our lives.
Why do we hold on to these grievances? Why can we not let go?
I pray that today you let go of these heartaches, headaches, and wounds. Let God give you unspeakable peace and rest from these thoughts of Revenge and Evil.
Love you all!
