Scripture & a Snapshot - Week 54

Water Ripple

“So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need."

Matthew 6:31-33

This week I've been struggling.
A lot.

I've been too focused on building my Etsy business and worrying about making more and more money even though God has been faithful through it all. My Etsy shop is profitable. I should be thrilled about that! Every time I have an expense, God sees to it that I also make enough to cover those expenses. He gives me just enough. 

And then greed set in and made itself comfortable.
I even opened the door and showed it to the guest room.

But God tapped me on the shoulder and reminded me that He knows what I truly need and He will provide it.


Want to join in this challenge?
Here's how to participate:

1. Select a scripture.
My hope is that each week you will search your Bible and select a verse that has meaning for you.
Here's a link to a good Bible verse search engine.

2. Add a photo to it.
I hope that you will chose a photo that goes with your chosen scripture, and not just throw these two elements together. The photo can be from your archives or a new shot. Please only use your own photos. You can have the scripture on your photo, below it, make a collage - however you want, as long as the two elements are together!

3. Put the Scripture & a Snapshot button in your post.
You won't be deleted or banned if you don't. It just helps spread the word...and the Word. ;) 

It also helps visitors from the blog hop quickly identify your Scripture & a Snapshot post.

4. Come back here and link up your post. 
Please link directly to your Scripture & A Snapshot post, not the home page of your blog.

  2. Such a beautiful picture. So peaceful and relaxing. I know that business of yours is fixing to fly again. Just had a little testy spot. :)

  3. It's easy to get off track isn't it? I know I'm constantly battling with giving blogging too much time. Your transparency is a blessing.

  4. such a great scripture and i really appreciate your transparency in this post. so freeing! i totally understand what you are going through also. thanks so much for sharing your heart.

  5. I can understand totally where you're coming from Katie but you saw where it was going and nipped it in the bud real quick.

    I love that little shot - it's as if you're looking down at the clouds despite it probably being a shallow dof of a piece of soft material.


  6. I used Matthew 6:33 in my photo this week too! It's a beautiful verse.. I love it so much! Your photo is lovely, so peaceful.

  7. What a lovely photograph, as always! I've been struggling with worries this week as well. May we both find comfort in God's provision, whether it's according to our plan or not!

  8. Great post...thanks for sharing this! Love the shot, too.

  9. Oh Katie I wish I could adequately describe how much I needed that verse and your post today! I am praying for you, and growing and feeling the same as you. You are not alone sweetie. God is so faithful and strong and a wonderful provider. Holding super close to your verse this week. Thank you!

  10. To know God will provide is one thing - to live it is another....I know the feeling.

  11. Eek! Amen and Ouch! Lol.

    There are so many of us in that same boat... you are not alone, my friend! and I love how God is whispering to each of us and we are able to share our heart's cry with others and be an encouragement.
    thanks for sharing your heart.

    love and hugs
