SALT - God's strength

It seems lately that I have been made aware of so many people going through so many difficult trials, serious illnesses/injuries, financial strains, marital stress, loss of loved ones, and more. It's often easy for us to begin to question God's purposes and worry or despair. In this chapter of Corinthians, we see the example of the apostle Paul, how he prayed 3 times for God to remove a "thorn in the flesh" (we are not told what it was). God's answer should be our encouragement and comfort as it was Paul's! "My grace is sufficient for you."

When I was contemplating what to do for this challenge, I thought of the verse that contrast strength and weakness in the Bible, its a verse that is really powerful. It also drives home the message of Jesus, that we can not do anything to please God unless we have the right relationship with him. I also wanted a bold design to contrast with something weak, thats why I choose the feather and the dragonflies. Couldn't resist some glitter either!

Please have a look at the work of the girls on the team here.
