Hymn Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - #9 - I Surrender All

Patter gave us a hymn this fortnight that I have sung many times.

For the scripture I chose for my hybrid piece of art is one I found by typing in the word "surrender"  for a keyword search at BibleGateway. It is from the Amplified Bible and in case it is not readable as it is did not scan very well, I will share it now:
"Do you not know that if you continually surrender yourselves to anyone to do his will, you are the slaves of him who you obey, whether that be to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience which leads to righteousness." - Romans 6:16

I personally choose to surrender to Jesus as is sung in this great hymn.  It is not an easy path to tread but I know I have the Holy Spirit's help along the way. I have added on my digital piece word art that was in the digital kit I used - " try to remember: take it one day at a time".
That is all that God requires of us - to take one day at a time and with living each day to surrender to Him daily.

Here is my digital piece:

For this digital piece I have used a kit called "Life Montage" by Amanda Fraijo-Tobin and can be purchased from Scrap Girls 

This is the front and back pieces that I have added brads to and real stitching. This hangs on an ATC holder:

Hymn Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - #8 - Christ Arose

This fortnight Patter gave us a lovely old hymn which is often sung at Easter time - Christ Arose.

I will share the chorus:
Up from the grave He arose,
With a mighty triumph o'er His foes;
He arose a victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever with 
His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! Hallelujah! Christ arose!

Here is a quote by Billy Graham which is a good one to keep in mind:

"Each time I see the empty Cross, let me be reminded of your suffering and your victory, Lord Jesus."

For my digital art I used a kit called "Risen" by Outside the Box  Studio Design

Here is the 6 x 6 page featuring the hymn:
