When I was a kid, every morning my mom sent me out the door to school with an encouragement from Philippians 4:13, “You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.” I dealt with some serious bullying issues in later elementary school, and I know it was hard for my mom to watch me go through such heartache. But pointing me to my true strength in Christ was the best thing she knew how to do.
I was excited to see this month’s DaySpring (in)spired deals, because I think it is great to have scripture around the house. It helps forgetful moms (and kids) to stay grounded in the truth.
I was sent two products to try out from this month’s collection. One is a little red plaque with Philippians 4:13 and “Your strength is as big as the God in you” on it. I have it on my kitchen windowsill, where I can see it while I’m cleaning up, or if I look out the window at my kids playing in the back yard.
The other product I was sent is a collection of eight pads of sticky notes. I am a sucker for this kind of thing! I just love paper/pens/writing supplies of any type.
Five of the pads have a scripture reference and little message, while the other three have a colorful pattern. These would be great to write a quick note on to stick in a kid’s lunch box, or to stick on a book you were loaning to a friend. Or, you know, to write the grocery list on. Just being real.
The set of notes itself would be a nice little hostess gift or even just something to give a friend to show you were thinking of her.
Are there certain Bible verses that really speak to you, or that have special meaning to you?
