The Lord is my Shield. . .

The Lord is my shield in whom I trust. Psalm 144:2

This week, the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team challenges YOU to use a sketch!
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, Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. EST. Complete details are available on the ODBD blog.
Please take a bit of time to visit  my fellow challenge team members blogs, you'll be blessed!

Project Details

This stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs is such a masculine set, but it's also an elegant set, so with a bit of pink, pearls and lace. . .it is perfect for a feminine card. . .and that's a good thing, because us girls are just as much in need of the Lord as are the guys!

I am so thankful that He is my Shield, even on those days when my sinful heart and distracted mind look everywhere else for comfort and protection. He is faithful and has promised to be with His children, always. . .even to the end of the age.  If we who are, by His grace, trusting in the only Savior for mankind, Jesus Christ, then we have nothing whatsoever to fear. NOTHING shall EVER separate us from the love of Christ. . .but don't just take my word for it!  It's what God says in His Word. You can read it for yourself, right here!
