Crosses of Inspiration are everyday reminders that a Perfect Christ continues to live within an imperfect world and an imperfect us. They come personalized with your favorite Biblical verse or a verse that is unique to your situation or the situation of a loved one. We have provided some examples, but please feel free to e-mail us with a specific request.
The crosses are made from re-claimed wood whenever possible. The dimensions of each cross will be a bit different depending on the cut. Each cross is hand drawn and then cut so that it is unique. The outter- cross is meant to be curved and misaligned to signify the imperfect world we live in and the imperfections within each of us. The inner -cross is straight and meant to represent the Perfect Christ that exists within the world and within each believer.
Our typical cross is approximately 13 inches long, 5.5 inches wide and 1.5 inches deep. The crosses are hand sanded and stained. The name of the chapter and the numbered verse is handwritten on the front of each cross and the entire verse is neatly typed and sealed on the back. Each cross will come ready to hang with a saw tooth hanger.
We have provided some popular biblical verses to personalize your cross, but if these aren't what you need in terms of inspiration, send us your verse and we will gladly use your verse.
The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord
Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other
I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."
May the Lord give strength to his people! May the Lord bless his people with peace!
"Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations."
Do not be deceived: "Bad company ruins good morals."
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
