I created this layout for the first challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles using Webster's Pages and some of my stash. Here are some close-ups of the details (I think they were pretty cool!).
I've been reminded lately that sometimes things don't look the way we want but it doesn't mean that the Lord isn't taking care of us. I really don't want to be like the Israelites and miss entering my Promised Land because I couldn't trust the Lord. The Israelites had enough to eat and drink and yet they complained that they would have been better off in Egypt where they had meat to eat. When the scouts returned from checking out the Promised Land they again forgot the Lord's goodness because it sounded hard/scary yet the Lord had promised. Instead of remembering all the miracles in Egypt, the Red Sea, their daily provision they complained that it would be better to have stayed in Egypt or even the Wilderness. God wasn't doing things the way the Israelites thought He should and so they spent 40 more years in the desert. Can I look outside of the box that I want the Lord to perform in to allow Him to be GOD and do as He knows is best even if it doesn't look like what I wanted?
