Job is possibly my favorite book of the bible. Whenever I need reminding of how little I actually am and how BIG God really is, I open to Job. Typically, I start reading in chapter 38, and by the time I reach the end of Job (chapter 42), I’ve had a few slices of “humble pie!” This time though when I flipped open to Job, I landed several chapters before 38 in chapter 33. In this chapter, Elihu is giving some advice to Job. He reminds him of where he came from, chapter 33 verses 4-6:
“The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Answer me if you can; set your words in order before me; take your stand. Behold, I am toward God as you are; I too was pinched off from a piece of clay.”
I knew I needed to stay on these verses for a while, and journaling in the margin allows just that.
For this entry, I started stamping some of the words, hand lettering a couple, and then mixing it up with the letter stickers. I love the cut outs that are provided by Ashley on the back of the devotional (subscriber bonus). I used the banner and flower cut outs. I always position everything prior to making it permanent to be sure I’m pleased with it. Once I glued them down, I added the book and verse using more of the letter/number stickers . Of course, I had to add a couple of the hearts….I love them so! On this entry, I created lines for journaling at the bottom. Finally, a few bows to complete it!
I pray that if you are reading this, you know how much you are loved by our Almighty God! Yes, we are but a piece of clay….but in the Hands of the Master Potter. Truly, He loves His Creation.
