Making and Decorating Memory Verse Cards

11 3-30-19 PM

Today (Wednesday – I’m writing this and saving it to post after my surgery) I decided to make some Bible verse cards to have handy in the next few weeks of my recovery. I let the boys get into the project by decorating them and adding their personal touch.  I’m so thankful for the Word of God that comforts, encourages, challenges, and convicts! So practical, yet profound!

We read through the verses and talked about what it meant for God to be our strength, and how we do not need to fear. Perhaps a few of these will encourage you as well today:

Philippians 4:6,7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 62:6 “He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved.”

Psalm 73:26 “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

What verse(s) do you cling to during difficult situations?

Stay tuned for a guest post from Brad on how we are striving to teach the Word to our little learners.  It’s a good one!

    Your photos really touched me this morning. I love the finished cards with your boys’ decorations! These are the two verses I turn to most often during rough times.

    Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

    Psalm 139:16: “You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.”

    Lam. 3:21-24
    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 his faithfulness.
    “the lord is my portion” says my soul,
    therefore i will hope in him.

    What a fantastic idea! I’ll definitely use this one with my daughter! I’ve been following your blog for a while and am often encouraged by it. I’m going right now to write down Philippians 4:6-7 to help commit it to memory.
    Also want to let you know that there is one more friend-of-a-friend praying for you during this time…Jen, you used to work with my sister, Kierstin 🙂

    Bible verses are very important to start early in a child’s life as children are sponges that absorb the information and they can keep it when they need it the most when they get older

    My sister directed me to your site after I had a muscle repair/tt last week following multiple back issues after having twins. I had back surgery before carrying the twins to term, and it has been a struggle ever since. That said, this week has been a true struggle – I really take strength from these verses you and your boys shared Thank you for the reminder!
