Yes and Amen!
YES and AMEN are two of my favorite words! Who knew such small words could contain such HUGE meaning!
(Read to end for details on the BIG Illustrated Faith Giveaway!)
2 Corinthians 1:20 in the NLT Bible says,
“For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.”
This verse is what immediately came to mind when I first saw the new “Yes & Amen!” kit from Illustrated Faith.
Just a couple of weeks ago I wrote a post sharing my Free Printable Prayer Journal Template that I created, based on the book, FERVANT, by Priscilla Shirer. In it she provides the following framework for writing our prayers, using an acronym for PRAY:
P stands for Praise.
R is for Repentance.
A is for Asking.
Y stands for YES! (And she quotes 2 Corinthians 1:20″For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!”)
—>>> Psst! You can get the Free Printable Prayer Journal Template HERE.
And just a couple of months ago I wrote a post titled, The Light is Green – a Bible Journaling Tutorial for Dreamers. It is a Bible journaling tutorial on … can you guess what Scripture? Yes, 2 Corinthians 1:20.
I have been taught that when you are getting the same message, repeated over and over, and from several different sources, that means God is really trying to get your attention, or confirm something He has already told you. So my ears are perked up and listening intently to what God may be trying to say to me.
And I may just have to try out this cute new kit by Illustrated Faith and DaySpring to add more cuteness and color to my Bible and prayer journal. And to help me process what God is telling me. 🙂
Here’s what is included in the kit:
- 1 devotional booklet (14 devotionals)
- 1 stamp pad
- 1 clear stamp collection with 1 sheet of cut outs enclosed
- stamp words: yes & amen, rest in, Him, God, go out with, joy, praise, love, Jesus, great, faith
- 1 roll of washi tape
- 1 package of 3 Scripture sharables
- 1 sticker
- 1 bow clip
From DaySpring’s website:
Take this delightful, 14-day devotional journey with Junelle Jacobsen and be refreshed in spirit and soul as you’re lovingly reminded of Jesus’ love for you.
“There are times in our lives when we need this sweet reminder of who we are (in Jesus), and how much passion God has in His heart for each of us. Do you know how loved you are? Do you need a reminder of that love?” “Oh, how He loves us!” —Junelle Jacobsen
