1 3rd place, and 2 honorable mentions..All will receive blessings for participation. Thank you all for participating. It was a blessing to me. ♥

Scripture Interpretation with Dressup and what the Scripture means to you

1st place : Charis
My scripture is found in Isaiah 58, which talks about the acceptable fast.
I'm focusing on verse 11 in my avatar. It says this:

'And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy they soul
in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered
garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.'

To the obvious ( ) I've added a little sparrow, that never is out
of God's sight. The servant's belt is to symbolize the love we are to
have for each other, as believers. The waterfall background is chosen
to symbolize the torrent of God's love that creates and nurtures HIS
image in us.

2nd place: twob4me
Habakkuk 3:19 NIV
The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights.
ETA why I chose that Scripture:
It reminds me of the allegory books I read from Hannah Hurnard. Those 2 books are "Hinds' Feet on High Places" and the sequel "Mountain of Spices". That Scripture was used in the first book I believe and the story from both books really touched me so that every time I hear that Scripture I'm taken back to the story. If you haven't read them I strongly urge you too. It will bring you to a stronger walk with the Lord. [bless and do not curse]
Scripture Dressup

1st place: Servant of Merciful Love
Psalm 119:105
Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.

Woodland paths draw me in always....
I love them, but especially in the Fall.....no bugs, pretty foliage, cool crisp temps, active beavers on the pond, and wildlife on the move preparing for winter.

I feel the Lord's presence when I am out in His creation, and am often drawn into contemplation.

His Living Word comes alive when I sit alone with Him....contemplating His light, power , beauty...and mostly His Divine Providence for us (even the smallest creatures)...in His Merciful Love.

As the days unfold, He illumines my path , as I securely walk in His light and grace ...... according to His perfect will for me.

Let all creation give praise to God

2nd place
CJames84
Psalms Chapter 118
28 Thou [art] my God, and I will praise thee: [thou art] my God, I will exalt thee.

29 O give thanks unto the LORD; for [he is] good: for his mercy [endureth] for ever.


I really like all of Psalm 118 to be honest, but narrowed it down. Why does this remind me of autumn? Well, Thanksgiving is coming soon and when I think of fall, I think of Thanksgiving. I am reminded of all I am thankful for through the good times and the bad. Also, sometimes you can just feel something in the air especially between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is like the Holy Spirit is everywhere. When I was a child, I used to feel something about the holidays and couldn't place my finger on it. Now that I am an adult, still with bunches to learn, I understand it. We have so much to thank the Lord for and not even just on Thanksgiving, but every single day we have.

3rd place:
Jeanette
In the fall I think of Thanksgiving and remembering everything God has done for us. It's good to remember that God Almight brought us out of Egypt and meet ALL our needs the forty years we spent in the desert. He was teaching us to TRUST on him alone so that we may remember to PRAISE him.

Deuteronomy 8
1 Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land the LORD promised on oath to your ancestors. 2 Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. 3 He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. 4 Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years. ... 10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you.
I am dressed as Miriam might have been with manna falling.
I realized manna fell overnight not during the day

Honorable Mentions

RuthD
1 John 4:16b,18a “God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”

I know God is everlasting unconditional love and I feel that in my heart. With his love I don't have to fear anything. I follow his footsteps as best I can and want to with deep devotion and love. I have different sceneries of the sky at night, bright red, black and golden, the colors of fall and God made them all with love. I am dressed in red to represent love. I am carrying the large heart of God. I am a Christian, and the picture of Jesus Christ is a symbol of who I follow, he is love as is God.

Lainey
Proverbs 30:18-19 (NLT)
18 There are three things that amaze me—
no, four things that I don’t understand:
19 how an eagle glides through the sky,
how a snake slithers on a rock,
how a ship navigates the ocean,
how a man loves a woman.

**************************************************************

I am thankful for all the things that sorrounds me. Having the chance to appreciate every little things that God created is a gift that I trully treasure. There's a lot of things that I do not know, and more things that I do not understand, but every second of my life I am thankful for the man that God had given me. The love that we share is one of the greatest thing that amazes me with each and every beat of my heart...

Flowerpetal
The verses I have chosen are Luke 11:9-13:

9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”


I chose these verses for this contest, not only because they are very meaningful to me on a personal level, having asked and received so many wonderful answers to prayer from the Lord, but because autumn can signify a slow drift into winter or 'death'. Perhaps there are times when we feel that God is not near to us or He is not hearing our prayers. These verses tell me that that is not so; that I can ask at any time, day or night, and know that my prayers are heard.


The gift of the Holy Spirit to me is so mind-blowing and so wonderful. I could not proceed on my journey with the Lord with any confidence, were it not for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. He enables me and teaches me and as I reach the autumn years of my life, I am very grateful that He has been with me all these years, and that as Jesus promised, I have not been left nor forsaken. I am so grateful for all of these things and to know that despite all my human frailties, the Lord loves me.

His Word burns in my heart like a fire, and I cannot contain it.
Jeremiah 20:9

Then Jacob asked him and said, "Please tell me your name." But he said, "Why is it that you ask my name?" And he blessed him there. So Jacob named the place Peniel (being broken before God), for he said, "I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been preserved." Now the sun rose upon him just as he crossed over Penuel, and he was limping on his thigh.…

Scriptures:
A New Dawn:
Psa 121:1, 2 ¶ I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help [cometh] from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

All I am and all I have is from God. God is my strength, my shield and my protector. He is the Lamb of God and the Lion of Judah. I am nothing, yet He loved me so much He gave His life for me, and chose me to be one of His daughters.
RuthD:
1 John 4:16b,18a “God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”

As a flagbearer for Christ, I chose that verse. I make flags and I dance to Him with flags to worship music.

Brinny:
I am amongst the trees, that are clapping their hands and showing and declaring God's glory. Purple symbolizes royalty, as in being a daughter of the Most High God.

"For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands." ~Isaiah 55:12
Patience:
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having ont he breastplate of righteousness; And you feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

I am very thankful that God has given me everything I need to be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might to enable me to stand against the methods of the devil and live a victorious life in whatever may come my way. All I have to do is remember to put it on!

Nilla:
Scripture: Psalms 121

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night. 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore. (NIV)
What it means to me, it reminds me where to look for strength and that He is with me - always.

The verses I have chosen are Luke 11:9-13:

9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”


I chose these verses for this contest, not only because they are very meaningful to me on a personal level, having asked and received so many wonderful answers to prayer from the Lord, but because autumn can signify a slow drift into winter or 'death'.

I am so grateful for all of these things and to know that despite all my human frailties, the Lord loves me.
Philothei
1 Corinthians 13

1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I chose to place the banner of love as per the scripture selection.
