These simple bracelets remind us about God’s word (Jesus the word made flesh) and how much we are loved by Him. Packaged in a velum envelope and secured with a gold ribbon bow is a bracelet and six cards printed on card stock with bible verse to encourage peace. The biblical definition of peace is the absence of fear and turmoil, not the absence of trials.
When giving this bracelet to others, encourage them to place the bible verse cards where they can be seen throughout the day: on a dresser, counter, mirror, in the car or wallet.
These make great Christmas, Easter, and Baptism presents and go quickly at fundraisers. If donating the proceeds to Missionaries, place a little card in the envelope stating the name of the Missionary, their work, location, and how to contact them.
We have even worn the bracelet and carried the verses with us and used it to comfort others that we run into, be it shopping or at a Doctor’s office. It’s a conversation piece as to what it says and is a great opening to share how life is different with Jesus in your life. The ‘Be still’ means do not worry, trust God, and relax; He has your back. We do what we can do and then turn it over to Him and ‘Let God’.
Peace – Be still (don’t fear) and let God (trust God to do what you cannot, no turmoil).
The original design has the pearls, for pearls of wisdom and the hanging heart. We have directions for variations using a horizontal heart and replacing the pearls with other beads. For the men in our lives, we created a leather wrist band with the heart replaced with a Jesus fish charm.
Sometimes when at our lowest we cry out to God to show us a sign that He is there and cares for us. You being there to notice and pass on the bracelet with God’s words can be miraculous to them. Be His hands and give this out with words of encouragement and a hug from God, can make all the difference in someones life.
