ABC Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - #5 - Easy
"The Greek word for ‘easy’ is ‘chrestos’ which means “comfortable or manageable.” God never tells us that being a Christian is easy. But when we are partnered with Christ, even the most difficult news and/or situation becomes ‘manageable’. If the situation is still unbearable, maybe you are trying to do things in your own strength. Jesus wants to help you carry that burden, problem, or difficulty. He doesn’t want you to go through it alone. In fact, the circumstances will seem so much worse if you try to handle it on our own. God is still God, and God is still good even when things are not easy. If we go through the hard times with Him, He will not only be glorified but our faith grows also, and then we receive that indescribable peace. Others will also see God at work in your life and may be drawn to come to know Him too! "
I have chosen the same Scriptures as Patter used for her artwork but from a different Bible version. I really like how the New Century Version words these three verses. It is so right for today..... "Are you tired or feel burdened.... then turn to Jesus and learn from him.
For my digital art I used a kit called "Crazy You" which is a collaborative kit by the designers at Digi-ridoo Scraps. The font I used is called - Little Days. I am using this page for the Font Challenge this month at Digi-ridoo Scraps
