Blessed is She | Bible Journaling with Julie

“Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust.” Psalm 40:4

ACS_0001Have you ever heard of the phrase “trust fund kids”? It often refers to rich children whose parents put money in a trust for them to use as they please.  These children are blessed with unlimited resources to use whenever they need or want to.  Sounds good, right? However, usually this phrase is used negatively, because these kids often don’t learn how to work hard or to appreciate the blessings they have.

But guess what?!  You and I are TRUST FUND KIDS!  Psalm 40:4 says, “Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust.”  A trust (noun) is the source of the assets (money, property, etc.), legally set up to be drawn from.  In this text, the psalmist says that the person who makes God their Trust [my capitalization] is blessed.  We have unlimited riches at our disposal, placed there by God for us to draw from whenever we need to.  However, these riches are not the material or financial blessings–they are the spiritual blessings that the psalmist is thanking God for in verses 1-3.  The blessings of attentiveness, restoration, security, peace, and joy, among others.  When we trust in Jesus, He becomes our endless source of these spiritual blessings.  Blessed is she whose faith is in Jesus!

I created this entry using the stamps from the May Faith Art Box, and a few of the stickers as well.  I began by sponging and smooshing some Distress Inks to get some color on the page.

I then stamped the words and flowers.  Next, I used the flower stamp from the  March kit as an outline for the flower stamp in this month’s kit.  How cool is that?!  (Although the March Kit is sold out, the stamp set will be restocked this summer.)

 

 

 

Washi tape, heart stickers, a tab and a bow completed the page.  I love the colors and how this page turned out.  Check out the process video to see how easily it all came together.

ACS_0002My prayer is that you will be blessed because Jesus is your Trust.  When your faith and trust is in Him, you can [with]draw from Him unlimited riches and blessings.  Don’t forget to make a withdrawal daily.  Be a Trust fund child!

Be sure to share what you create with this month’s Faith Art Box on Instagram and in the Insiders Facebook group.

  1. Oh my goodness, Julie! I love everything about this post and page.

    God’s trust fund children! Funny-sounding, but an awesome message. YES!!! That will stay with me for a long time. Oh, how we have so much to be grateful for. We really have no idea how blessed we are by God.
    As for the art: I love the use of the Zion stamp on the backer to write “She.” I’ve had my eye on that stamp since it was first added to the shop, and I just might add it to my June order. And layering the March flower stamp with this month’s flower — I hadn’t caught that they match.

    Your post & video were a blessing to me this morning. Thank you.

  2. I almost forgot: I also loved how you masked the verse and then used mustard seed distress ink. I prefer leaving bible text fully visible, and your technique makes the verse look like it is glowing!

    1. Thanks, Kathy! You can do the stamping with any ink pad. But you don’t get quite the same effect with the smooshing. But it’s still a nice effect. But, if you wanted an excuse to get some distress inks, then absolutely—you need some! 😉
