“Oh! Wow! the battle is the Lord’s.” <>< Dona (03/21/20)

The craft today is a SHIELD to remind you that God is our SHIELD (our protection) in the battles we face.

Deuteronomy 20:3-4 “… today you are going into battle against your enemies. Don’t let your heart faint! Don’t be afraid, or tremble, or be scared of them; for your God will go with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.”

Our battle can be

physical (such as the Coronavirus, cancer or the common cold)

emotional/mental (such as fear, sadness, anger)

spiritual (such as doubts about God, about our salvation)

the shield without the words was a free download from PIXABAY

DIRECTIONS TO MAKE YOUR OWN SHIELD:

Working in a WORD document set the margins on all sides to 0.5 and set the columns to 2. 

Then copy (right click on the photo above) and paste the shield in the WORD document.

Size the shield to fit in the upper left corner (1/4 of the page). 

Then copy the shield three more times on the same page. (This way you’ll have 4 shields to place around your house or to share with others.)

Print the shields on cardstock paper.

Cut them out. If you so desire, you can attached a magnet to the back of your shields.

“Trust God with your current battle.” <>< Dona

Dear scripturecrafts.com visitors,

 For the next few Saturdays my suggested craft is to “make” time to pray for not just your own family but for others.  Please pray for all those around you who are right now going through possibly a battle that eclipses yours. 

Pray for:

those who are ill;

those who are taking care of the ill;

those who are grieving the loss of a loved one;

those who live alone;

those who are struggling with a food shortage;

those who are seeking a cure/vaccine for the Coronavirus;

and those who are struggling to understand where God is in all of this.  

The Bible says “draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8). Keep yourself and your family safe but please make time to pray. <>< Dona
