Faith War Binder
Be still, and know that I am God. (Psalms 46:10) This month I wanted to share with you how I used my Floral Dot Carpe Diem Planner and the Faith collection as my War Binder. This scripture has so much meaning to me that I cried when I first saw the 6X8 pad. I knew right away what I was going to use as my Dashboard.
Throughout my life I've had some very difficult moments. Some that people will never have to go through in their lifetime. From having my first born son prematurely and needed to stay in the hospital for 30 days and just days before he was released was told, to prepare my self for the worst, he most likely is not going to make it! I couldn't understand, and I wasn't going to accept that. Our church prayed at the next service while we were there and by the end of the week he was able to go home.
When our daughter turned four we went in for a routine checkup and found out she had a heart murmur, but the doc wasn't too concerned, but was concerned enough to have a child cardiologist take a look at her heart. Before I knew it there are 4-5 doctors in the room with us all whispering among themselves. I felt my heartbeat in my ears. I was like, what is going on! My eyes were darting back and forth. It was then that her cardiologist informed us that she needed to have open heart surgery. I felt like I was punched in the gut.
From surgeries, marriage, and all the other things life throws at me. Sometimes I try to take matters in my own hands and sometimes I did and messed up everything, but God was always there and still is, reminding me to be Still! Through a song playing on the radio, from a friend, from a greeting card to my daily devotion, a sermon on a Sunday morning, on a journal sent to me, and now with a Simple Stories Faith Collection Line. I'm humbled that he would take the time to constantly bring me reminders of who really is in control.
The Faith A5 planner inserts are perfect for my war binder. I used the Inspired journal inserts, to keep track of what I was reading, inspiration and prayers. I also made a little flag paperclip bookmark. This has to be one of my favorite color schemes of all time. The florals, mason jars, mint, aqua, pinks and yellow are so beautiful. All of the journal cards and stickers are just what I need to add some inspiration and encouragement to my day.
As part of my war binder, I keep my month scripture writing in it. I use the weekly inserts to write down each scripture for the day.
Jesus is the reason I live and breath, he is my hope and my salvation. I serve him because I need him! My life and everything about me is far from perfect, but I'm thankful to know who is! I am also very thankful that I now have a gorgeous way of documenting all my prayers, daily scriptures and more, using the Faith Collection.
