March's Note Card Party: Words of Strength, Hope and Comfort!

Life change takes adjusting to.  It takes courage.
Changes like....going back to work after not practicing veterinary medicine for 2 years.....Mister resigning from his job.....doors unexpectedly closed.....contemplating retirement....seeking how to best serve in a new season of life.....not to mention a new financial perspective.
I discovered this verse a week or two ago, and it speaks for itself.
Directly from the mouth of God.

"Even to your old age and gray hairs

I am He, I am He, who will sustain you.

I have made you and I will carry you;

I will sustain you and I will rescue you."
Isaiah 46:4

Ok.  So He made me and He carries me.  He sustains me and will rescue me.
That ticks all my boxes.

The pictures all reflect hope to me.  Hope of new seasons, hope of beautiful green leaves and blooms and sunshine.  Hope of new life.

Thank you Lord.  For Your compassion and that all You've ever wanted was my heart.  You have it.

Be blessed today, and do visit Vee at ahavenforvee.blogspot.com for her wonderful party.

Change can be difficult, but with HIS help we do anything!

So beautiful Carol, the photos, and scripture with so much "Hope", I am so thankful that when unexpected change comes I have some where to go to find this hope. thank you for sharing.

This entire post is so beautiful, it brought tears to my olden eyes.
I can speak first hand that HE does, indeed, carry us right thru gray hair and olden age. HE is right beside me every step of the way and sometimes, I can just FEEL HIS arms around me, holding me tight.
I am not one bit afraid of growing older...not one single bit.
Love your pretty cards...and love you, too. :)

I have three pages of scriptures that I often speak aloud in prayer and faith and that verse is one of them!

Wanda said...

I can see you are a precious lady, a servant heart and a heart for the Lord.

I love that verse. Change is hard. 6 years ago we retired from 50 years of ministry. My dearest a Pastor and myself loving young women and the elderly.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and your kind words.

I plan on following your blog and I think we have some kindred hearts.

podso said...

I'm sorry you are having trouble following my blog. Not sure why,maybe something to do with gog.
I enjoyed visiting your blog and realize that I used to read your blog some years ago and sort of lost track of it. I remember your house! I really like your note cards and the scripture to go with them. So comforting. I'm sorry for all the changes and adjustments going on in your lives now. I was just reading a book on similar subject and it talked about trust is moving forward, one step at a time knowing God walks with you.

Your photos are joyful and heart touching, and the verse meaningful as I am encountering life changes, too. Chickie is beautiful.

Vee said...

This is what I needed to read today...thank you. Everything is going to be okay. (I just told you what I want to hear. ; D )

Very nice note cards to complement your words...

This couldn't have been better, from the hopeful themed photos to the scripture to your thoughts after. Just the kind of encouragement I need these days.
