Our First Giveaway!

Hello my wonderful readers! I appreciate you so much, I want to give you something I love! 

I found this beauty on Etsy at the  Redeemed Jewelry shop. Once I bought my own I started buying them for friends with different verses and phrases I thought would be a blessing.

Redeemed Jewelry generously donated a necklace of my choice, so now I get to give away this gift to one of you! 

Here is what Laura, one of the store owners, wants to share about Redeemed Jewelry:
The inspiration for starting our business comes from Proverbs 3:3, "Let love and faithfulness never leave you. Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart." With this as our guiding verse, we design pendant jewelry with Scripture on it in a variety of styles. Our mission is to create beautiful Scripture necklaces that will encourage and inspire those who wear them, gift them, or read them.
 

A few other favorites of mine from Redeemed Jewelry

I chose this necklace with a phrase taken from the spirit of Daniel 3:18, when facing the fiery furnace Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego told the King that God could save them, "But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.”  God did rescue those men from death in the fiery furnace!

God does not always rescue us the way we would like or expect, but I have learned through fiery trials of my own that when His rescue seems lacking, He is not any less Good. God can save me from my depression, my sickness, my relational brokenness, my pain, my frustrations....but if He chooses to allow my suffering to continue, He is still Good and His salvation comes within the suffering. There is so much Good to be found within the sorrow, even when I think I'd rather be healed of the root cause of that sorrow. In fact, I have found myself closest to Him through my times of pain, and the joy I experience in moments of beauty and grace seem that much sweeter in the midst of my sorrows. So I wear this necklace as a reminder to myself. These words of truth rest over my heart, and the feather is a special reminder to me of my Miles

Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
— Proverbs 3:3 NIV
