Gentle Thoughts

Do you ever wonder how God see's you? Though I know I am saved by the finished work of Jesus, there are times when I do stupid things and then think; "Lord, what do you think of me."  I know He thinks of me as his child, a little child who is growing and trying to overcome sin. I know He thinks of me as I did my son when he was small and he would do things he should not have done but was so remorseful I could not help but to love him more and help him more to grow up to be a man of honor. That is how God see's us, a humble heart He will not turn away but loves us for trying and encourages us to keep running the  race. That is what I think of with this stamp, Gentle thoughts of you.

I had made this card for the Split Coast sketch challenge. Stamped the butterfly in vellum and colored, made a ribbon flower.


Things I used:
Stamp: SU Garden Collage
Ink: Memento Black Tuxedo
Paper:SU and vellum
Tools: copics.


Have a Blessed Day

Wow......this is so beautiful. SO beautiful! I feel the same way too about making foolish decisions. But, I stand on His promise that He will never leave us nor forsake us that we can boldly say He is my helper and I shall not fear what man shall do unto me. I have fallen back on this verse so often lately.

seamom said...

What a beautiful, beautiful card! I love everything about it.
I too wonder what God thinks as He watches me live my life. And I share the same thoughts you expressed.
But I also know that He is actively involved in my life. He knows the plans he has for me, and continues to show me grace while I grow up!
