printable // encouragement memory cards
Do you need a little encouragement in your life from time to time? Of course. We all do. And I think it's interesting to see the different ways that we seek encouragement or surround ourselves with it. Sometimes it's from people, sometimes from inspirational quotes, and sometimes from a combination of those things.
I'll take encouragement however it comes, but I find that reading God's Word reminds me of why I should be encouraged: Because God cares and has it all covered. So I keep Bible verses around and try to memorize Scripture so that it's always with me.
To help me memorize things, or simply as a way to keep them close at hand, I made some printable cards. They are blank, but the PDF file has boxes you can type your favorite Bible verse or inspirational quote into before you print them.
I used the turtle and coffee cup from this month's calendar because 1) I like to do some reading and meditation on Scripture over a cup of coffee, and 2) I'm a little slow when it comes to taking these things to heart!
If you'd like to keep your cards with you, you can even make a little felt pouch to hold them!
Just cut two 3"x4-1/2" pieces of felt, stitch around three sides, and then trim the last side with pinking shears. I love that it looks like a little paper bag!
Whether you choose to fill your cards with words from Eleanor Roosevelt or the Almighty, be encouraged, friends!
