DIY Bible Journaling Tabs

I just recently started Bible journaling and I absolutely love it!  It’s been a great way for me to use my creativity and study the word of God at the same time.  More on that in a later post…

So, I love all things DIY – especially since I feel like I have a complete craft store in my craft room.  It’s kind of insane the amount of craft supplies that one person can actually have, but I digress.  I found this great tutorial by Lindsey Decor and grabbed all of my supplies out of the closet and got to work.  Super simple and super fun!

Music for the soul

my hope is youI have always lovedLOVED music.  I can remember sitting in my room for hours listening to my favorite cassette tapes (YES, cassette tapes!) and waiting beside my boom box for just the right moment to hit the little red record button…you know, to record the latest and greatest tune on my blank cassette tapes!?  There were so many times that I would just put on my headphones and get lost in the music.  It was as if it were speaking to ME.  Today, I still love to get lost in music.  Lately, MercyMe’s song “Even If” has really been speaking to ME – giving me words of encouragement that I need in just the right moment in life.

You see, we all have struggles and unfortunately life isn’t always what we thought it would be…full of unicorns, MUSIC and rainbows.  Instead, for me, lately it seems to be filled with storm after storm after storm.  But whenever I hear “Even If” I am always reminded that no matter the struggle I am not alone and there is always hope in God.  The storm is just a learning opportunity for growth and a reminder that it’s ok to lean on Him.  It’s a reminder that he will always provide the strength that we need to face the not-so-fun parts of life.  God doesn’t give us anything that he doesn’t feel we can handle.  I just saw a quote that says: “God gives his hardest battles to his toughest soldiers.”

So, if you are feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders…just remember that all you need is a little bit of coffee, music and a whole lot of Jesus!

 

 

 

Even If – MercyMe

They say sometimes you win some
Sometimes you lose some
And right now, right now I’m losing bad
I’ve stood on this stage night after night
Reminding the broken it’ll be alright
But right now, oh right now I just can’tIt’s easy to sing
When there’s nothing to bring me down
But what will I say
When I’m held to the flame
Like I am right now

 

I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone

They say it only takes a little faith
To move a mountain
Good thing
A little faith is all I have right now
But God, when You choose
To leave mountains unmovable
Give me the strength to be able to sing
It is well with my soul

I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone
I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt
Would all go away if You’d just say the word
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone

 

You’ve been faithful, You’ve been good
All of my days
Jesus, I will cling to You
Come what may
‘Cause I know You’re able
I know You can

I know You’re able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone
I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt
Would all go away if You’d just say the word
But even if You don’t
My hope is You alone

It is well with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul
