Happy Heart Wisdom #2

Need some encouragement today? Here's some straight from the heart of God....

In my quiet time I like to pray directly from God's Word and 2 Thessalonians has many passages that are perfect for praying through. Here's a prayer list from 2 Thess 3:1-5.

  • that the Lord's message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes
  • that God's people will be rescued from wicked and evil people 
  • for confidence in the Lord to do what pleases Him
  • for a full understanding of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ
  • to stand firm and keep a strong grip on Biblical truth (from 2 Thess 2:15)

There is a good reason why many people have referred to the Bible as the Instruction Manual for Life. The answers to all of life's questions are found here...I pray you will find your answers today.

I create my artsy background's for hhw by sorting through my scrap basket. I save stamped images that don't turn out quite right to scan and play with using Today's artwork started as a watercolor stamped Floral Brocade; a Hero Arts stamp #CG187. It was stamped with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. 
 I uploaded the scanned image to PicMonkey and had some fun playing with all the wonderful tools. They are adding more all the time. This is the best place I have found for photo editing and it's free!

Please feel free to use hhw images as long as you link back to my original post. Thanks.

have a blessed week sweet blogging buddies,
