August 2019 Scripture Writing Plan -Steadfastness
So much has happened since I posted July’s scripture writing plan. Good and bad. My husband’s health (hospitalized and now nursing home), upcoming (unexpected) landlord inspection, van purchase (finally! We finally sold that pinball machine and got enough money to buy a new van). I feel like a yoyo that keeps going up and down!! 🙂 I’ll be posting all about it soon, but today’s post is for those of you who enjoy these Scripture writing plans.
I’ve been trying to get at least that posted every month through these crises, if nothing else. I long for the time I can be consistently active with more posts! It can’t be helped at this point, but with my husband having only 3 more radiation treatments (they discontinued the chemo) we’re at the last stretch (Lord willing!!)
I’ve been overwhelmed a number of times but the Lord has helped me understand the importance of steadfastness. He’s been so so good to us through all of this. I’ve learned I’m stronger than I thought I am (through His strength), and He’s shown me how to keep putting one foot in front of the other in the midst of all this. If He’s been here for us through ALL that’s happened since December, I can have faith He always will, and that has taught me to be steadfast and keep going one breath at a time. I usually say, “One day at a time”, but with all we’ve been through, I’m now saying, “one breath at a time”, because that’s how we face every day, after all.
We need to be steadfast, trusting the Lord to be our shepherd to protect us, be our rock to hold us up, and be our lighthouse to guide the way for us.
We couldn’t have afforded any of it without the GO FUND ME PAGE loving people have given generously to. We don’t need help with the rental fee every day any more (thank the good Lord), but there are some expenses remaining I would be more than grateful for your help with. I have to pay the tax and title for the new van and that’s a little more than I have in our account at the moment. There will be a lot of doctor appointments once Greg is home from the nursing homes (his last radiation day is Wednesday and I’m moving him to the nursing home near our home (my mom is there too) for further rehab and recovery.
I’m so thankful that so many of you are enjoying and spiritually benefiting from these monthly scripture writing plans! I love putting them together for you knowing that you find them useful and uplifting! Use these passages to write out the scriptures and grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Click on the image below to pull up the full-sized PDF file for printing –>
I usually print these out on 28 pound white paper (or 32 pound paper is even better) and just stick them right into my planner or journal. The heavier the paper, the less chance it will tear out of your binder or planner by accident and helps resist bleeding or ghosting from your pens or markers. It helps the page turn easier too. If you choose to print these out on full-size (letter) sticker paper. I use these here. They’re priced great and you can write on them easily. They are good enough quality for my needs. If you want a top-quality sticker paper look for these or clear ones here. (Though not all pens or markers will write well on the clear ones). If you don’t want to use sticker paper, you can print them on card stock or regular printer paper and glue them down. Honestly, the sticker paper is the best way, however. Regardless of the type. Going through a lot of ink printing out planner stickers? Do like I did and enlist in the HP Instant Ink program! I’ve saved so much money on ink since I did a year and a half ago. They have different plans, but the one I’m in (the most pages) is that I can print up to 300 pages worth of ink for just over $9.99 per month. You can choose lesser pages for a lower rate, but I do a lot of printing between coupons, planner stickers and other things. Click on the image here to check it out! –>
