Light of the World!

Hello Friends!

I wanted to share another of the new stamps which will be available in my Etsy Shop soon, soon, SOON! There will be 3 sets of 4x6 clear, polymer stamps released and I can't wait to show you guys the other sets! 

Today I was reading John 9:1-7 Jesus heals a blind man. Sometimes I think it is easy for Christians to skim over these miracles because the Bible just zooms from one to the next. But if we stop and pause, we can really take in what is happening here. Jesus made a man who was blind from BIRTH have perfect vision! Think about what this meant in the Man's life! Jesus refers to Himself as the Light of the World (verse 5). He was certainly the Light of this blind man's world! His healing was absolutely life altering for the Man and likely his friends and family, too! 

I want to also acknowledge the Blind Man's Faith. Jesus went right up to him and put spit laced dirt on his face. Right on his eyes! Instead of the man calling out, "Dude, what are you doing?", he simply goes and does as Jesus told him to do and he was healed. He was blind and then he could see. Friends, this is our God!!

Have you ever looked to heaven and wondered "God, what are you doing here?". I know I have. Let's work to focus on obedience to our Heavenly Father. He has a plan and He knows best! 

Be sure to hop over to my Instagram feed. I am giving away a set of these Salt and Light stamps before they go on sale in the shop! for this page I used the asteriks, the Light of the World map, and for the background, I used chalk ink to stamp the Shine stamp for some extra texture and interest. I also used just the "light" text from the map stamp and the tiny sun to make the tab. To get just the "light" text I just colored that part of a stamp with a Faber Castell Big Brush pen. 

Be Blessed!
