The box itself is very decorative, so I've just had it sitting on a windowsill until this week. I had peeked into the box back at the time I received it, and knew I would use the cards in some way, but hadn't really decided just how.
Until this week. I decided to pull out one card per week and to pray each day with a focus on the particular Scripture on that card. That is, I would carry on my prayer time as usual, but keeping that verse in mind as I did so.
Here is the card that was on top:
So I propped this card up on the window near the chair where I most often sit to pray. And as I pray, this verse is in my mind. God can do anything ... anything! Those requests that seem impossible -- He can answer them. That situation that looks intolerable -- He can change it. That uncertain health prognosis -- He can turn it around. Such a great thought to have in mind as I pray!
Throughout the day, I have found myself glancing at this verse and being uplifted by its truth and certainty. Such a blessing in these uncharted waters we are all navigating these days. I'll try and share each week's verse as I come to it, and hope that this will be an encouragement to each of you as it is to me.
