My heart trusts in Him

This week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge is to make something that represents what could be your life verse, a place where God has revealed to you that you can trust in Him, something representing a turning point in your life, or just focusing on Psalm 56:3..."When I am afraid, I will trust in THEE."

Cindy Coutts is this week's host and she courageously shared why Psalm 56:3 has special meaning to her. Her story resonated with me and brought back lots of memories of my big move to America five years ago. It was a very scary time for me and for the first time in my life I learnt what it truly meant to "trust in Him". This helped me tremendously over the last five years and although I may not always understand God's plan for my life I know He has one and that makes me joyful and gives me reason to give thanks...hence the choice of verse for my card today..."The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in Song." Psalm 28:7
