His Holy Name - Judge


Yay, I am finally getting caught up with my His Holy Name challenges, this one is for the current study on the Attributes of God - Judge is the topic of this one!

The minute we think of God as a Judge we all think of doom and gloom....I have certainly read many scriptures of the consequences of sin and judgement, but there are also many that tell is that God judges the heart - if our hearts are for Him and right with Him, we have nothing to fear!

I was greatly comforted by this scripture - the Lord is our judge, lawgiver and KING will care for us and SAVE US!! That is good enough for me - I know that there are many times in my life I need saving - mostly from myself!!! I am often the biggest hindrance in my relationship with God..I need to get out of the way and often can't see that - but the Lord will save me!! PHEW!!

There is a lot of symbolism in this card - you know how I love symbolism with these....The chair represents God's Throne, the Crown, the fact that the Lord is King and the Dove is the Holy Spirit! The wings are symbolic of celestial beings and the Bible, of God's Word, which will never pass away, which we are judged by! I have used purple and gold as they represent royalty...our Lord is King!
The chair is from the Flourishes set 'Three Chairs for You' and the crown from Layers of Color set Royal Birds and the wings are also Layers of Color from the Beloved Wings. I have added Kindy Glitz and Gold Gel pen to add shimmer and sparkle to this card, not all over but on the crown and the wings....you can see how much it adds in the close up!


This is also for the Flourishes Birthday Celebration - 2 years old - Fit for Royalty Challenge. I love the Flourishes Challenges!
