Scriptures on Sunday: DIY Daily Verse

DIY Daily Bible Verse Board

2014-02-08 21.54.47{vintage picture frame + spray paint = dry erase board}

I love meditating on a verse that stands out to me from my morning reading. This simple ‘dry erase board’ makes it easy for me to change the text daily and stay focused on His word.

The options are endless with this project.. you can leave the glass by itself as I did, or you can put some pretty paper behind it. Get creative with different verses and fonts, too.

Everyone has heard this Psalm before, but I tried to put a little twist on it by emphasizing certain words. If you look at only the larger bold words it reads ‘The Lord desires your heart’ which is an underlying message hidden in the verse. Pretty cool right?

Happy Sunday. God Bless!

Scriptures on Sunday

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house.. when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

I can honestly say I’m a child of God and a lover of Christ, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t need (yes NEED) constant reminding of the promises of God. I love that the bible commands us to leave spiritual “post its” around our homes so that we may always have our focus on Him!

Being the thrifty woman that I am I decided that I wanted this project to be as cheap to accomplish as possible, and as it turns out, it was free! Here’s how I did it with only a computer, a pencil, and a sharpie..

ImageFind the fonts you like and type out your verses in super large text. Tape a piece of paper over your computer screen and trace the lettering with a pencil.

ImageTurn your paper over and cover all your lettering with pencil. The more pencil you apply the better your letters will show up on your wall/canvas or whatever you’re using..

ImageTape them to your surface, in my case it was the wall above our bedroom door. Trace over your letters firmly with a pencil to transfer the pencil from the back of the paper onto the surface. After you remove the paper, you should be left with a light outline of all your letters/words and now you can either paint or sharpie in the lines to make it stand out..

Lamentations 3:23

I love this verse over our bedroom door. Every day when I wake up it’s there to remind me that I am a new person in Christ every day no matter what mistakes I’ve made in the past, or even just yesterday. Today is a new day with new mercies!

Happy Sunday everyone! God Bless.

Keeping God In The Small Stuff

Keeping God In The Small Stuff

It has been more than a year since my last blog post. In that time so many things have taken place that have changed my life for the better. My faith has grown, I have been blessed beyond my wildest imagination, and we also welcomed our second daughter into the world and into our lives.

Along the way many of you have noticed blogging definitely took a backseat.. or maybe it just got left behind completely. In the last few months, however , I’ve had such a resurgence of inspiration that I knew it was time to begin again. On the start of the new year I turned to the beginning of my daily devotional book to the January 1st entry and what I read was a direct call to my heart. My hope for this year is to be able to share all the things that inspire, uplift, and bring joy into my life.

Your PRAYERS are always welcome!
