#64 πŸ’œ tangled heartstrings, yet… “Even If” by MercyMe



HIGH STRUNG - cute Sheep Incognito knitting yarn print signed

Daniel 3:18 β€” "even if He does not"

Daniel 3:18
“But even if he does not, we want you to know, Your Majesty, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Hello & Welcome to my 64th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is a bit of a tangled mess ❀

Over a month since my last blog update, but I’m still here! Can we blame it on the crazy messed-up world we’re living in?!? Hope you’re well and hangin’ in there! Hope you’re not feeling strung-up and stressed-out like this endearing sheep of yarnful entanglement. Or like me… Yeah, feels like I’ve been hangin’ with this sheep a lot lately :-/ Click the screenshot image to find this woolerful print for sale on Etsy πŸ™‚Β I figured it’s a fitting illustration of how I’ve been feeling πŸ˜‰Β 

“Even If” by MercyMe is the song my heart’s been singing and syncing, more deeply by the day ❀ What a comfort to knowΒ Jesus loves us and is fully able/willing to move life’s tangled mountains! But even if His provision differs from our preferred outcome,Β we know He will always love and take care of us.

He’s been faithful and good all of my days… I have faith in Him for what He’s already done… Come what may, my soul shall cling to Christ alone ❀

  1. Hi Jackie, I love the image and that’s definitely me over the past month! πŸ˜€ My son is doing his exams at school over four weeks and it’s been a time of ups and downs…I feel sorry for my poor mother when I took mine! Never realised how stressful it is! Hoping calmer days are ahead for you too…take care. ❀️️Xx ps. Sorry I’m not on FB so can’t like your page!

    • Thanks Annika ❀ Yup, stress is only cute when pictured as a sheep strung-out on yarn πŸ˜‰ Exams truly are stressful, but I'm sure your son will follow your example and do very well πŸ™‚ No worries about FB! For me, it's a fun filler to keep somewhat blogfully connected between posts. Hope you're not feeling too stress this weekend! πŸ™‚ πŸ’œ Jackie@KWH

  3. In this crazy world with so much heartache how important it is for those with something beautiful to say and share to be encouraged. Keep flooding the darkness with the beauty in whatever way He has gifted you, with the creativity and love that only Christ can give to this 2017 mayhem. I personally love the beauty of what you make and do. It lifts my heart and nurtures my spirit. I write, please God only the books and things that reflect His Heart for all of His Children. appreciation and love.
