BVT118 Matthew 11:28-30

This week's Bible Verse Thursday challenge is Matthew 11:28-19. We were told to create something that indicated restfulness. Before I show you my submission, I wanted to give a quick inspirational blip. Here goes...

Rest. Isn't that a lovely word? The Lord tells us, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest...and ye shall find rest unto your souls." (Matthew 11:28-29) He goes on to tell us that He can give us rest because His yoke is easy and that His burden is light. Why? Why does He say that His yoke is easy and His burden light when He took upon Himself all the sins, sickness and sorrows of all the children of God? One word: Love. He Loves us! I use the capital L, because His Love (aka charity) is perfect. Everything that we do can be easy if we do all in Love. Work done in Love can be the same as rest if we allow ourselves to feel Love for those we serve to envelop our lives.

Anyway, there it is. My feelings and thoughts on this scripture! And here is my submission, made with elements by Dustybear:

Hi Mynnette, your card is beautiful. I love to create digitally as well. Love the vintage feel to it. Of course the scripture is the central focus and you're portrayed it beautifully. Thanks for giving additional insight to that scripture. Great to see you participating in Bible Verse Thursday. ~ Abby
