This is my card for the current Scripture and Lyrics Challenge located  here
I was in a hotel room - yes, having a ball making cards this week while Bob was at our ABC Convention downstairs learning all kinds of stuff.  I just plain skipped out.  So I had limited supplies for my cards, but am not sure I would have wanted it any other way. 
The song this time is Undo and the chorus goes like this
Turn me around pick me up
Undo what I've become
Bring me back to the place
Of forgiveness and grace
I need You, need Your help
I can't do this myself
You're the only one who can undo
                                                   What I've become
I found myself thinking about the times Jesus wants me to come to Him for help and I go somewhere else.  It becomes a habit.  I noticed awhile back that when things got rough at work and I had a project I couldn't see myself handling, I would stop everything and go get a cup of coffee.  A couple sips did me fine and I would get back to work.  Now I can picture Jesus standing there waiting for me to ask HIM to help and I didn't.
When I am tired in the evening, but the day isn't over and I need some extra strength, where do I go?  To the refrigerator or pantry for something sweet - and Jesus stands there waiting for me to come to Him.  Picture your own child doing the same thing, leaving you standing...  
I chose Psalm 96:1 as my verse because I need to sing the New Song to Him and lean on Him and depend on Him for all my needs.


  1. Thank you for your beautiful sharing! What a wonderful reminder to turn to Jesus FIRST!
    You've created a really great page, and I love the Scripture verse you chose.
    Thank you very much for visiting my blog. I'm going to join your blog so I don't miss any of you future posts! :o)

  2. Thanks, Nancy for your sweet comment. Sometimes the "real truth" is the hardest to share.

  3. Your post has been really helpful with that wonderful image of Jesus waiting for us to come to Him ! I love how you have made your title and the arrow !

  4. Such a lovely picture of Jesus standing there for us to turn to Him for the help we need. Beautiful card too, great scripture and I love that title. Thanks for your comment on mine. I'm going to join your blog so I don't miss anything :)

  5. What a challenging and thought-provoking post, Carol, as well as a great card made with minimal supplies.
    A song I don't know, too! I'll have to check that out some time when I'm upstairs; our laptop has lost its sound since we formatted it :-(.

  6. Great challenge card! Like the script w/the corrugated letters. Wonderful words to present your thoughts on asking Him for help, first. I liked the end when you asked us to imagine our children seeking out help elsewhere instead of or before coming to us. TFS, Carol! :)
