Count it all Joy

James 1:2-3 Free Printable Scripture Card

More and more I am convinced that a believer’s perseverance, steadfastness, in the face of trials is a precious sacrifice of praise to God. As I watch friends suffer another round of cancer treatment, reel in the face of their spouse’s unfaithfulness or grieve a prodigal child and yet turn their eyes to Jesus and testify of His faithfulness despite their painful circumstances, I marvel…

Beautiful. Enduring faith. Shaken but not destroyed.

One thing I know for sure, Scripture tells us to count it all JOY when we face trials of many kinds because the testing of our faith produces steadfastness. In light of God’s faithfulness to us, is not our growing steadfastness evidence of becoming more like Christ? JOY!

Lord, help us to count it ALL joy. Transform us into Your likeness. Help us to walk by faith clinging tightly to Your hand as we journey through suffering, loss, and disease. Be our strong foundation and strengthen us to persevere with eyes fixed on You all the way home, Jesus. You are worthy of all glory, honor and praise, Father! -Amen

According to Psalm 59:16 (ESV) God is:

Is there any better Scripture to remind us of God’s great love for us while giving us words to worshipfully pray back to Him?

Happy New Year! Let’s make 2018 the year we are filled to the brim with God’s joy and then… Let’s spread it to the world around us! Remember, true joy is found in the presence and Word of God (and it is oh-so-fun to share with other people)!

Want to know about the one practice that has dramatically impacted my joy in the Lord? It’s simple! I place Scripture cards around my home and read them frequently as I go about my day (while stirring soup on the stovetop, folding laundry… you get the idea). Suddenly, I realized my heart was encouraged and I am memorizing Scripture without even trying! This practice is what started our ministry here at Page of Joy and it’s the reason I make so many free Bible verse printables available to you.

Women all over the country LOVE getting Joy-Mail in their mailbox. Ginni D. Rated Page of Joy: Delivered 5 stars and said:

Super Fun to Give or Keep!
Who doesn’t love getting mail? I rarely receive anything other than bills, so getting a treat in the mail is super fun! These scripture cards and extras are perfect little gifts to give away or keep for inspiration every day.

Today I’m sharing 5 creative ways to put your beautiful Bible verse cards to use!

1. Give your verse cards away!
Become the ultimate joy-spreader! We all need encouragement from time to time. Is there someone in your life who would be blessed to receive a kind note and uplifting Scripture card? Page of Joy: Delivered cards are flat, not folding, and the backside is matte white with plenty of space for writing a note. Envelopes like the ones shown here will fit the cards well.

 

 

 

(White envelopes found here. Kraft envelopes found here.)

2. Frame your favorites!
Frames, like the 4″ x 6″ frames shown here, turn your favorite verse cards into beautiful art!

(White frame 1. Teal frame. White frame 2.)

3. Store your favorites for later.
Using an album made for 4″ x 6″ photos or our Felt Envelope Clutch, you can store unused Bible verse cards safely. Keep cards in excellent condition until the perfect opportunity arises to put them to use!

 

(Leather Photo Album. Felt Envelope Clutch.)

4. Get creative!
Do you have plate stands, business card holders or leftover wedding place card holders? Put them to use! I’ve included some cute options to inspire you.

(Mahogany Metal Stand. Silver Place Card Holder. Gold Cube Memo Clip Holder. Brass Plate Stands.)

Note: In the Page of Joy shop we offer a solid pine display block. While this display block does work with some of the Page of Joy: Delivered Bible verse cards, it is specifically made to pair with the Gold-Foil Premium Set of Bible Verse Cards. Our pine block will not pair well with all of the Page of Joy: Delivered cards due to size and verse placement. We are working to create an option that will work well for this purpose.

I’ll bet you can easily find three or four places to display these verses in your home or workplace. Keeping Scripture around my home has helped me continually renew my mind in the Word of God and has transformed my joy in the Lord! Keep things fresh by rotating your cards every week or two. You’ll be amazed at how much Scripture you memorize simply by reading these verses each time you walk by.

Have any other ideas for putting these Bible verse cards to use? I’d LOVE to hear! Share your ideas in the comments.

Thrill of Hope, the Weary World Rejoices

Free Printable 8 x 10 and Scripture Card

Do you feel lonely? Maybe you’re a little burned out… overwhelmed… sad… disappointed… eager for a change?

The thrilling truth? Someone wants to spend Christmas with you- and you needn’t dust or scrub your home in preparation. (Relief!)

His name is Immanuel, God with us…

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14, ESV)

The world tells us that Christmas is about gifts, parties, meals and happy-go-lucky families gathered around a crackling fire.

I’m calling their bluff. Guess what? You don’t need to buy one. single. thing. in order to celebrate a meaningful Christmas season. You only need to enter into an abiding relationship with Jesus Christ.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him.” (John 3:16-17, ESV)

This Christmas, find rest in the One who is full of grace and truth. Grace… from the Greek word Charis, meaning unmerited favor and “that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness”. (source)

I want to spend time with the One source of true joy. I will spend time with Jesus by spending time in the true Word of God. One of the most effective tools that I use to help me meditate on the Word of God (even during busy seasons) is to place Bible verse cards all around my home and read them as I go about my day. I’ve made a new free printable card (and art print) to help you do the same!

Immanuel, God with us… He is our thrill of Hope. Weary world, rejoice!

Merry Christmas, friend. Having you as a part of our Joy Community means so much to me. I pray these printables will help you to center on the true reason for the season.
