SALT Challenge - Jeremiah 29:11

Good afternoon friends!! Late post today . . . all this going to the lake is catching up with me - tee hee! I fell asleep last night around 9 pm and got no work done at all!! So today, we decided to stay home and get some work done (besides, it's supposed to be a teeny bit cooler today).

Anyway, the challenge this week is from Ruth. She chose a verse from Jeremiah 29:11 and her topic was Purpose. Read her write up on the Salt blog. She asks a question at the end of her post: "How does your faith make you think differently about your PURPOSE?" Great question! As a believer our PURPOSE is no longer to live for self but to glorify God. Everything we do or say should be for that PURPOSE alone. When I was young and would attend summer camp, we quoted the same verse before every meal: "Whether therefore you eat or drink, or whatsoever you do, do all to the glory of God" (I Corinthians 10:31).

I am also reminded of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem on what we now call Palm Sunday. As he was riding into the city on the back of a donkey, the disciples began to "rejoice and praise God with a loud voice" (Luke 19:37). When they were rebuked by the Pharisees, Jesus told them "I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out" Luke 19:40. ALL creation praises God, shouldn't we?

The ATC I created today uses the verse Ruth gave us, Jeremiah 29:11. I used the cute little flower stem images from Everyday Button Bits (Papertrey Ink), after all the flowers certainly glorify God don't they?

If you'd like to play along with this week's theme, please leave a comment on the Salt blog so we can all see your creation! Have a wonderful day!

  7. What a nice card. I followed the link from Splitcoast to look at your blog. I like the way you've used your computer for the scripture verse. I keep thinking of verses and hymn texts that would make great cards, so thank you for the inspiration. Into my Google Reader you go, so I can see more in the future.
