Light in the Darkness

Life has seasons where problems, trials, or challenges seem to pile on top of each other. They surround us with darkness and maybe even despair. Sometimes we can't seem to find our way out. Job loss, health problems, financial worries, death of a loved one all take a toll on our happiness and well-being. What a blessing it is to be reminded that the Lord will be our light and lead us through those dark times! What a special promise we have in scripture to know that if we fall we will arise! If I do something I regret or fail to do the best that I should, I have the assurance that I can get back up and get on track again. What precious promises that shows how much God loves us! Those are the blessed messages given in this verse from Word Art Wednesday, which was beautifully designed in color. You can find it here in color and in black


"When I fall, I shall arise. When I sit in darkness the Lord shall be a light unto me. " Micah 7:8



I used this sketch from Stamplorations:



I loved the flow of the Basic Grey paper. It seemed to represent falling and getting back up. I used black cardstock and black glitter paper to represent the darkness and silver glitter paper to represent the light. They were anchored with enamel aqua dots. 

May the message of this verse bless and sustain you in trials and troubles!

I'm sharing this verse with the following challenges:
