Hi there, Tales of Beauty for Ashes readers! I’m Christie from Sparkles of Sunshine, and I’m so happy Becky has allowed me to spread some sunshine to you today. In fact, I’m so happy that I’ve decided to give you all a free gift today. Even better…it’s inspired by Becky!
I met Becky through a blogging group, and I was immediately drawn to her story about her pregnancy. I followed along, like you, reading the posts and updates about her baby. While I was reading, I was amazed at her strength and faith, despite her current trial. This reminded me of the times in my life when I endured hardships like losing a job, losing loved ones, and most recently battling infertility. It’s during those times that (even if I’m not willing) I’m forced to rely on God’s strength to get me through, and not my own. As hard as trials can be, it’s during those times that my faith in Him is strengthened, and in turn my love for Him increases. I’m so glad God helps me through the difficult times in life, aren’t you?
I love this verse from Isaiah, and I immediately thought of it when I first stumbled upon this blog. No matter what you may be facing in life, God promises to use all things for good.It may not happen in our timing, or in the way we had planned, but God will be there with you every step of the way. He promises to give us beauty, blessings and joy. Isn’t that a wonderful promise? To remind you of this, today I’m sharing this FREE PRINTABLE I created…just for you! I hope that makes you feel special today! All you have to do is click on the link below, print it, then pop it into a frame. Super easy, right? This would even make a nice gift for someone that may need encouragement today. Feel free to share it with your friends!
My thanks go out to Becky for letting me share with you today. I hope you enjoy your free printable. Be sure to stop by at Sparkles of Sunshine and say hello sometime. I’d love to hear from you!
I just love Christie, isn’t she great? That printable is beautiful! I love that she used the verse that inspired my blog name. In case you are wondering, here is some background behind Tales of Beauty for Ashes.
