Washed with the Water

This week’s challenge was prompted from this passage in Hebrews 10:19-25

Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

There is a song by this title also and the chorus really seemed fitting here:

Even when the rain falls
Even when the flood starts rising
Even when the storm comes
I am washed by the water

I picked this verse weeks ago to go along with the bleach brush technique that I wanted to give a try. Wouldn’t you know that as the time drew closer, this would really apply to me?! I have been going through a fiery trial in the last week or so that has shaken me and caused me to take a deep, hard look at my faith. I am SO thankful for God’s word, for the finished work of the cross and for the Holy Spirit how ministers to me in time of need. This week’s challenge was right on time for ME…and I pray that you will be blessed in it too.


  1. I love your card, friend! I would love to get some stamps from ODB and go to work on them!! Ha!

    God is so Good! He is always right on time. Just when we need Him most! Because NO ONE will get the glory, but Jesus Himself!

    Blessed by the Best!

  2. This is just so pretty, Marsha and I love the technique. Thanks for challenging us to use it. Even more, though I love your write up and how you remind us of our need for our Savior! Blessings!
