  1. It is a relief but definitely not always easy. The part that I cling to is that He sees far more than I can.

  2. These two very special and very well known verses have served as my “Life Verses” for many years, they help keep me grounded and they serve as an outline of how to live out my faith walk! Proverbs 3:5-6 has been framed in my heart a long time, thanks for this print!

      • Thank you so much for sharing these verses and your story and words of inspiratio …I was truly encouraged/inspired! I believe the Lord has already confirmed what I need to do….and I just need to trust Him wholeheartedly.

  3. Thank you, Jennifer, for the beautiful print of a wonderful Scripture. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary! Yes, indeed, we have many mountain top experiences along with deep valleys. My husband & I will celebrate 49 years of marriage on June 13th. Since last July, I have gone through a cancer journey that we never expected; but God has been there all along. God bless you!

    • Congratulations on your upcoming wedding anniversary, Frances! 49 years together is so wonderful! So nice to know Who is beside us during those tough journeys, isn’t it? Praying for you!

  4. Just wanted to say thank you for your artful and expressive way of “spreading” the good seed. As they say, “It is a God thing.” Well, let me say, “You own it, girl, you own it – not because of what you created but because of the Creator in you.”

  5. Thank you for this. My wonderful husband and I are celebrating our 29th anniversary today. There have been many mountains and many valleys. Some much deeper than others. Lately there have been several minor mountains. Minor maybe, but still several. With everything in Oklahoma and huge mountains of friends I should not let them bother me. However, being human. Anyway this came at a perfect time.

    • Happy anniversary to you and your husband today, DRae!! That is awesome! I totally understand, yes… being human. 🙂

  6. Happy anniversary! What a wonderful feeling to know that God has us in His arms.

  7. It is very hard for me to trust but thank you god that you are teaching me that it is okey
    that I don’t understand . Because your ways are much higher then our ways, and as long as I am holding your hand and trusting in you every thing is going to work out for my best.

  8. Happy Anniversary! Thank you for this print! It has always been a favorite verse!

    Our walk with Him is all about trusting. I have been up for two nights with only about 2 hrs sleep because of the tornados and our need to be ready to leave. I found myself singing, “Keep me safe, till the storm passes by.”

    Your words from the Lord have blessed me this morning. The sun is peeking through the gray clouds and it is going to be a good day!

    • Thank you, Grace! We live in Nebraska and I know that awful feeling of waiting during tornado weather. Grateful the storms have passed you and the sun is peeking out today!

  9. Thank you for this reminder of truth, Jennifer!! From the girl who wants to know what is around the bend and who wants to understand why a particular situation occurred, I thank you for reminding me that I don’t have to understand but I need to choose trusting the ONE who understands it all and who is Lord of all!!! Blessings!

    • I am just like you, Cate. I like to know and understand! 🙂 So this is something I work on and have to remind myself often!

  10. Jennifer
    Thanks so much for your words of truth. We need to remind us every day that our God is faithful – always! 🙂 Thanks so much for these awesome prints you make available for women like me who are ‘artistically challenged’ when it comes to creating prints such as these. 🙂
    Blessings to you!

  11. Thank you for the print out! This verse brings me such contentment. I will frame this & put it in a spot where I will always be reminded of His love for me. : )

  12. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary, Jennifer! This printable is a beautiful reminder that whatever we encounter, God is trustworthy.

  13. Jennifer, Happy Anniversary!! We will be celebrating our 57th in August. My sister and brother in-law celebrated their 60th yesterday. It hasn’t always been easy, but God has never failed us. He has been our closest friend that “sticks closer than a brother”. Proverbs 3:5&6 has been a favorite Bible verse of mine. I’ve often written it in cards I send to people, especially high school graduates. I’m so thankful that God directs our paths. (If we will trust in Him and allow Him to.) Thank you for allowing God to use you to encourage us.

    • Thank you, Betty! Celebrating 57 and 60 years of marriage… that is awesome! What a great verse to share with high school graduates. A wonderful reminder for them to carry!

  14. Happy anniversary!!
    We too have been through much we could never have foreseen….and this verse is special to us. So much so it is engraved inside our wedding rings.

  15. Happy anniversary! It’s my anniversary too this month. Love that verse and couldn’t come at a better time for me. Things going on that I’ve said I don’t understand? But your right it’s not our job to understand our job is to trust him! Thank you for this reminder!

  16. My hubby and I have been through some valleys in our short (going on 10 yr.) marriage. I am so glad that God brought us together to help each other through these valleys. My life verse has been Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. To give you a hope and a future”. It is truly amazing and wonderful that He has our lives planned out and we just need to trust Him with ALL of our Hearts!

    Thanks for the printout!

  17. I recently read a quote which said “God doesn’t give explanations but he does give promises”. This verse is one of those many promises.

  18. I’m so glad I do not need to understand everything that happens to me either. I’m glad He holds me tight when I can’t bear it.

  19. I was truly encouraged by this I don’t get to check my Emails very often and when I checked my E mail and read this it was true confirmation for me. God had placed this very scripture on my heart early this morning and now to see it in this Email blesses me and it only reinforces how important it is for me to trust HIM. Thank you I needed this. Michelle

  20. these reminders always encourage me a lot. I thank God for both of you and may many souls be blessed thru this ministry.amen

  21. Happy Anniversary! My husband and I have been married five years as of April. We have been through some storms. We both lost our jobs as of April. This story blessd me so much this morning. Thanks for the .pdf.

    • Nearly newlyweds! 🙂 I am sorry to hear this difficult journey you are in, Michelle, but knowing He will support you through it!

  22. Thanks for this!! Since last March, my life has changed in many ways. Inury at work, my car stopped runnng, was fired from job on my birthday, no medical ins., 3 operations on wrist, and my workmans comp stops next month. Your story gives me hope that this is all a plan for my life. I get depressed at times. ould you please reply—thanks Lorraine

    • There is always hope, Lorraine, there is always hope. Praying for you during this part of your journey. He has a plan for you!

  23. Every marriage has it’s hurdles. Thing is, we grow stronger through these hard times and difficult problems. It gives us that confidence that God is with us and if we remember our commitments to each other, we will find our marriage just gets better and better. We have been married now 37 years and we are enjoying one another as much or more than before. Keep your marriage ‘exciting’! Remember the butterfly’s journey.

  24. Hi Jen,
    Just wanted to thank you for this latest email. My husband and I celebrate 37 years of our marriage on the 12th. God has a way of sending thru my emails some very appropriate messages at the right time. This is how things have been in our life. I have learned soo much from my darling and his stand with the Lord. Thank you and thank you Father! God bless your ministry.
    Alex.

  26. Your poster is lovely. Thank you very much. You are most generous.
    It’s very nice of you sharing your journey with you and your husband. My husband is very lovely as well. Though we did have a hard time in the beginning. But we are best friends. Marriage is lovely. I would be so lonely without my husband. He is my life as we both share everything together. God’s perfect gift to each other. Our marriage.

  27. Thanks for this. It is a right on time, excellent reminder for me. My husband and I celebrated 21 years of marriage in May and have been through a lot but I thank God for being in the midst and providing restoration. I will continue to TRUST ONLY HIM to maintain the covenant He has established with us.

    God bless you always.
