I made this memory verse screensaver for myself today and wanted to share it. You see, I had put the following verses on the PPT slide:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight.
And then I went to look through my pictures for an appropriate photo.
Now, I have lots of "path" photos, which is what I was scanning for. But then I saw this little turtle - and I realized he was just perfect for these verses. Why? Because we need to trust in the Lord and believe that He will make our paths straight ...
... even though the path might be through the muck and the mud.
... even though we might get gunked-up along the way.
... even though it might be a slow slog.
Yes, I could have used a picture of a path that led through majestic mountains or deep forests. But I think, in the long run, that this little turtle's path has more to teach me about trusting the Lord.
