Pressed Flowers – Bible Verses

I’ve been creating pressed flower greeting cards using some of my stored pressed flowers combined with favorite Bible Verses. I think the two go together well. The flowers on the card front are: florets from the top of a marigold bloom, magenta lobelia, vinca, ferns and other wildflower foliage.

 “But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”  Isaiah 40:31


Proverbs – The Path of Peace

April’s Trail

 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV)

There are many potential threats hanging over us all: the collapse of world-wide economies, dangerous cataclysms beneath the earth’s crust, the crescendo of bad weather, poisons in the water, air and sky, epidemics, illness, famines…the list could go on and on.

Yet, I have a source, you have a source, we all have a source of peace. That peace can be found in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27 (NIV)

God’s presence and his word are always my abiding peace.

To find the Bible references for this post I used Bible Gateway. Bible Gateway is an excellent way to locate a verse in the Bible in a multitude of translations.
