Pray...Hope...Trust - WAW#29 and Key Ingredient Kit challenge

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Here is another card featuring the Key Ingredient Kit from Taylor Expressions (minus the buttons which are from my stash).  When I viewed all of the DT's beautiful cards I really liked the white flower (no altering) on Lea's card and that is the main inspiration for this card and flower.  I will be adding this to the monthly KI challenge

I love the sentiment from Faith in Bloom (Taylored Expressions) it is three simple words of faith.  So often in our walk of faith we can be burdened with wondering if we are truly in God's will.  What I am learning more and more is if I will seek the Lord in His Word, pray and get to know Him, He will reveal His will to me and then confirm it many different ways. So, if we want to hear God's voice clearly, we need to immerse ourselves in the Word of God and as He begins to speak to us through the Word allow that  transformation to take place. It's a renewing of our minds and as we cooperate with the Holy Spirit we have that assurance we are walking according to His will. We pray, in praying we exhibit hope and in hoping we learn to trust.

This card is also participating in Word Art Wednesday #29 and although I'm not using the verse they've shared my post is ultimately about trusting the Lord to guide us daily.

Thanks for visiting! Have an excellent day.

It is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.  Philippians 2:13
