I found this little wooden box at Hobby Lobby last fall and had been meaning to do something with it. A few days ago, I decided to decorate the outside with one of my favorite verses right now:
Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.
Inside, I will put other verses—on index cards—as they speak to me. Then, when I need encouragement or direction, I can open up my box and read the cards. (I also think this will be a great way to memorize scripture, something I’ve been wanting to do.)
If you struggle with patience on the journey sometimes, I hope Psalm 27:14 will speak to your heart, as it’s done mine.
