Share A Verse Of Strength swap: rarjones

When I pray, You answer me! You encourage me by giving me the STRENGTH I need. Psalm 138:3

I love that our God is a God that hears us and a God that wants to speak to us and reveal Himself and His will for our lives. Knowing that he is approachable and wanting to help in any situation brings strength. Blessings to you!

Hi ya! I'm your partner for the Easy Profile Comment #3! Wow! We have so many things in common! And so many of the same interests! 😄 I haven't made ATCs or inchies for a few years but still love 'em! And my favorite materials and colors are all natural... paper, wood, greens, blues, and browns.

Hope you're having a great start to the day! I'll leave you with this daily encouragement ... "The faithful love of the Lord never ends. His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning." (Lamentations 3:22-23)
