Hymn Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - #9 - This is My Father's World

Patter has given us a lovely hymn to work with and is one that I have sung in Church. Please visit Patter's blog HERE so you can read the writer of this hymn and also the encouraging teaching Patter shares in her devotional thoughts.

The segment of the hymn that I have shared on my digital page stood out to me.  It is so true that our Father does speak to us everywhere - especially in nature ( and of course in His written word).  I love to sit at the beach and listen to the waves crash on the rocks or just the noise of them rolling into the beach.  There is something soothing about it and I believe it is God speaking to me ... telling me this is His world and that includes me.... I am His. He created me and then bought me back to Himself with the sacrifice of His precious Son - Jesus, my Lord and Saviour.

For my digital art I used mostly a kit called Feathered Friends by Angela Blanchard and the butterfly by Syndee Nuckles

Hymn Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - #8 - Faith of Our Fathers

The hymn that Patter has given us for this challenge is one that I am not familiar with.  As I read through the words of the hymn the words "We will strive to win all nations unto thee" stood out to me so I found a scripture which goes well with those words.
The Matthew 24:14 which I have shared on  my digital page stops before some very important words but I chose to not share those on my page as they did not go with the hymn's words. But I will share them now...."And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come."   This end Jesus spoke of, is His second coming. I believe that once the gospel reaches all peoples in the world He will return.  That time is not far away and with so much bad happening in our world, I say as  Revelation 22:20 says  "Amen. Come, Lord Jesus."
