Psalm 18:32 Bible Journaling Tutorial and the Digitals for your Creating
Today's Bible Journaling prompt from the Christian Card Makers group is Psalm 18:32. I look forward to these prompts, especially now that I have the time to do them! Yay, retirement! Because this is not one of the verses I know by verse reference (there are very few that I do), I turned to it with happy anticipation. When I read the verse It brought me right back to the beginning of my walk with Jesus. At 20 years old, I was in such difficult circumstances, a new Christian, newly divorced from a violent alcoholic, Living in a small airstream RV, and supporting myself waiting on tables. I had big decisions to make and really no one to counsel with. I moved to SW Texas at 18, with high hopes for a happy marriage and a great life. No education, no car, and no job to go to. Just a man whom I barely knew and who had promised the life I was hoping for ( boy was I naive). I'll just leave it at The Lord sent a faithful witness to bring me the gospel, after 18 months of being a pain in her neck, I gave my life to the Lord. I have been living for the Lord since then, 1980. When the time came for me to make a decision to move back home The Lord brought Psalm 18 to me, and I took it as a promise from Him, that he would love me and keep me safe no matter what. He did and still does, Not only that, but he also gave me that great life and happy marriage that I had so hoped for! His word does say, that if we seek him first, and walk in his ways, he will bless us!
Journaling this verse has a great deal of backstory in my life, looking at it now 43 years later, all I can say is AMEN! He is true and faithful! If you don't know Him, seek him, He is waiting for you, open the door to your heart that He is knocking on.
I picked this beautiful Asian image because at that time I felt like I was fighting against every possible wind trying to blow me over and at that time, This verse let me know that the Lord would uphold me - and yes he did and has!
