Great is thy faithfulness. . .

But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end;  they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,“therefore I will hope in him.” Lamentations 3:22-23

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #129

This week, with winter on its way and maybe even some snow (somewhere in the world, but NOT in my desert town!) the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team wants to see your all white works of art!!
To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! And, if you use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing one to two creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. All submissions must be added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, Nov. 11 at 8 p.m. EST. Complete details are available on the ODBD blog.

Project Details 

The book of Lamentations is such a powerful book, written by the prophet Jeremiah as he mourns over the coming captivity of Israel (the northern kingdom) and the impending conquer of Jerusalem . Or, as Bible commentator Mathew Henry writes,

 . . We have this lamentation in which the miseries of Jerusalem are bitterly bewailed and her present deplorable condition is aggravated by comparing it with her former prosperous state; all along, sin is acknowledged and complained of as the procuring cause of all these miseries; and God is appealed to for justice against their enemies and applied to for compassion towards them. . .
I chose this stamp set for this week's winter white challenge because it reminds us that in the deep of winter, those who are the Lord's, are not without hope. Though we may be blinded and cold, we must admonish our souls and stand fast on the promises of the Lord, remembering that the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is His faithfulness

Randi's Song

 This set was produced a couple of year's ago in honor of ODBD Design Team member Randi Barrett who, despite many surgeries and treatments for the cancer that ravages her body, praises the Lord and rejoices in His goodness and mercies and is truly a testimony to the grace that is found only through the Lord Jesus Christ. Please do keep her and her family in your prayers.
