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