Bracelet Reminders

{Martha's knot bracelet}
My Monday night neighborhood Bible Study has recently started Beth Moore's Believing God study.  It is an incredible study so far, I always get so much out of her studies.  In Believing God she asks everyone to come up with a blue bracelet. This is why. . .

Beth refers to Numbers 15:38-39 NLT -
38 “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel: Throughout the generations to come you must make tassels for the hems of your clothing and attach them with a blue cord. 39 When you see the tassels, you will remember and obey all the commands of the Lord instead of following your own desires and defiling yourselves, as you are prone to do.

She also uses Joshua 3:5 NLT -
 5 Then Joshua told the people, “Purify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do great wonders among you.”

These blue bracelets are to be reminders to us during this study if we obey God's commands he promises to do amazing things in our lives.  
I thought I'd make our group some blue bracelets.  Last year I had saved these instructions from MSL for these pretty bracelets. I "happened" to come upon the instructions recently. Let me tell you, my filing system leaves a lot to be desired. I think they were in the "to file" pile, which is huge, btw. Finding their recommended beautiful cord is practically impossible at the local JoAnn's. Since we don't have NYC's famous millinery stores, that's the best I could do. I'm actually using some nylon ribbon yarn that seems to be working well, along with buttons from my Grandmother's button box. I have 22 of these babies to get done by Monday! I'm definitely going to use the easier knots for this quantity. It's a very simple little gift for some amazing ladies. I hope they like and use them.

  1. Cool idea Karen. BTW my Bible Study in Deuteronomy is also about remembering. Its fun to remember all the ways the Lord has blessed and graced us throughout our lives. I hope I never forget when I'm tempted to grumble about something.
    I'm so very proud of you - you certainly didn't get the creativity from me but I'm glad you got it. At least our faith walk is pretty much alike. I love you! Mom


Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. Please say hello while you are here. It would be so wonderful to meet you.
