Scripture Journal Template: If God Be For Us, Who Can Be Against us?

If god be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31




This powerful verse is beautifully restated by Dieter F. Uchtdorf: "Perhaps it is true that we are weak. Perhaps we are not wise or mighty. But when God works through us, no one and nothing can stand against us".  His simple yet profound testimony of this concept holds so much power for me.

I assume that many people feel the same way I do: not quite good enough.  I try to accomplish all that I should, to serve my family and others well, to teach and love my children, to learn and grow as an individual, to draw closer to my Father in Heaven. But if left to my own devices, I know I would fail at each of the roles I have been given.  

But with God, nothing is impossible.

So I keep trying, and I keep praying.  

How to use the Scripture Journal Template:

Print out the template (below).  You could print it on clear sticker paper, or

Trace the template into your scriptures using a light box. Or do an image transfer using packing tape.  Or cut out and apply the sticker if you are using the sticker paper.

If you are painting, you may want to use clear gesso to cover the page and let it dry.

Use watercolor, colored pencil, acrylic paint (or your favorite medium) to make the page your own.  Choose colors and techniques that you enjoy.  Simple is beautiful.

While you paint or color, meditate on the power of God.  Think of the times during your life when He has strengthened you.  When you were given what you thought was an impossible task, but with His help you were able to complete it.  Perhaps you'll want to make a list of experiences as reminder of the things you God has helped you to accomplish.
