♥ From Our daily bread ♥

If you’ve never heard of Murphy’s Law, you’ve probably experienced it: “If anything can go wrong, it will.”
Murphy’s maxim reminds me of the principle Jesus shared with His disciples when He told them, “In this world you will have trouble” (John 16:33 NIV). In other words, we can count on it—sooner or later we will hit troubled times. It’s not the way God originally intended life to be, but when the human race first succumbed to Satan’s seduction in the garden, everything on this planet fell into the grip of sin. And the result has been disorder and dysfunction ever since.
The reality of trouble in life is obvious. It’s the reality of peace that often eludes us. Interestingly, when Jesus warned His followers about trouble, in the same breath He also promised peace. He even told them to “be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (v.33). The word overcome indicates a past event that has a continuing effect. Not only did Jesus conquer the fallen world through His death and resurrection, but He continues to provide victory, no matter how much trouble we may face.
So, although we can expect some trouble in this fallen world, the good news is that we can count on Jesus for peace in troubled times.

How true is this!  ... but be assured , Jesus has already fought and won the Victory on calvary's Cross ♥

♥ Some more Christian gift tags ♥

I haven't been active on my blogs lately :(  having a hard time with illness.  This is a Scripture I love and I try my best to say it as often as I can remember.  When I was in hospital there was a lovely Christian lady in the next bed to me :)  and when she was feeling at her low points I used to say to her "Rebecca ... remember the wee Scripture??? ... I can do all things though Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13.  and she always smiled back and me in agreement :)
I made these today for my little shop

♥ Christian wooden Scrabble tile magnets ♥

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, but I have been in hospital again (4th time in 13 weeks)
I'm awaiting more investigations, so I just have to trust in The Lord
I make these little cute wooden Christian Scrabble tile magnets.  They are in my little Etsy for sale and have sent to America for more wooden tiles as they are soooo hard to get.
I hope you are all having a lovely summer time.

Thanks for stopping by
