Takeaway Tuesdays: Psalm 3:3

I love the Fall. It is my favorite time of year. I love the changing of the colors, the beginning of the school year (as a school nurse, I get to experience this over and over again with every year that passes). Basically all the “fally” things make my heart swoon. I’ve created this month’s Takeaway Tuesday with a Fall theme. And even though Fall brings about change, God’s character does not shift with the seasons. He is steady; He is our shield (our protector), and the One we can rest in when everything else changes. Let your hearts be encouraged by this friends.

Takeaway Tuesdays: Hebrews 4:9-11

This month’s Takeaway Tuesday free print is inspired by a really great book I read this summer, Soul Rest, by Curtis Zackery. He encourages us to return to Sabbath, or rest that recharges us—causing us to recenter our hearts, and enter into communion with God.

I highly recommend this book, and I have been inspired to take time once per week to rest and recharge, and spend time with God in my own way. Some times it looks like family dinners, sometimes it is spent with friends. Other times it is spent taking things slowly and taking a nap. My “Sabbath” is usually on Sundays because church is already on this day, but it by no means has to be from sun down Saturday night to sun down Sunday night. The best part about Sabbath, to me, is the freedom in how I choose to enter into communion with God. I am loving my time knowing more about Him and His people.

The print I created for this month is to encourage you to think about setting aside time to Sabbath yourself. I highly recommend this weekly rhythm.

Takeaway Tuesdays: 1 John 3:16

I love the summer months when I get to go on adventures to different places. This summer I visited family in both Maryland and England. And though traveling is one of my favorite activities, I can’t help feel “home” when I attend my church of 11 years, Outward Church. This morning’s message was on 1 John 3:16. I was encouraged by Pastor Matt’s words, especially, “If there’s action-oriented love in your life, there’s evidence of your love for God.” I created August’s Takeaway Tuesday based upon this passage. I hope you enjoy this free print.

Takeaway Tuesdays: Proverbs 16:24

This post isn’t on a Tuesday. I know I’m breaking my own rules, but I honestly almost forgot to create a print for this month. You know when you can’t help but think there’s something you were needing to do, but can’t quite remember the task? I’ve realized I’m out of Tuesdays for the month of April, so I’m adding this free print in on a Saturday.

I’ve finished reading through the book of Proverbs. Such astuteness from Solomon. Here’s one of my favorites (although I have many in Proverbs). Let’s speak gracious words to one another.

Takeaway Tuesdays: Psalm 9:1-2

I’m working my way through the Psalms this January. In Psalm 9, David says he will give thanks with his whole heart, and he will recount all of God’s wonderful deeds. I love the idea of presenting my gratitude to God with my whole heart and remembering all He’s done for me. It’s not always easy to do when you’re in the midst of turmoil, or life in the mundane is seemingly on repeat — but to remember God’s faithfulness is a healthy practice. It means I am fixing my eyes up God, and acknowledging He is good. Here’s this month’s free Takeaway Tuesday print. Enjoy!

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart. I will recount all of your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. (1)Click here for your free 11*8.5 print.
