January Ponder Pack (Psalm 118)
A fresh new approach to digging into scripture.The first ever Ponder Pack combines art prints and thinking points to help us hear from God in our everyday lives
‘This is the day that the LORD has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.’ Psalm 118:23+24
Ever been in a battle?
Have you seen God make a way through an impossible situation? Or walked through a lonely stage in life and look back on it now to see that God was with you all along?
Psalm 118 is a song of victory - a celebration of all that God did. It doesn’t ignore the trials or paste over the horrors that they had been through, but it celebrates the victory of the Lord over the darkness. Of life over death. Of hope over despair.
In January we are focussing on verses 23 and 24 of this Psalm of celebration.
In your January Ponder Pack you will find a few prints and some pointers to help you dig into this Psalm throughout the month.

The Ponder Project is a year long project from Hope&Grace which aims to help each of us develop a continuing conversation with God in the midst of our busy lives.
‘Mary treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart’ Luke 2:19
What might change if we learned to ponder what God says to us: what if we let it change us.
What if we had a space with resources, encouragements and motivation, to make pondering a habit. To help us build it into our daily lives, and to see God use it to change us.
The mission of The Ponder Project is to do just that: to encourage us to live from a place of pondering - asking questions and developing resources to help us busy 21st-century-Christians to carve out time and create space to put Jesus, the word of God, front and centre. Giving the Holy Spirit permission to paste his word on the walls of our hearts and teach us how to properly reflect on it.
Sounds like hard work? Like it would require too much time or brain space? I hear ya!… so The Ponder Project is gonna try to make it a little simpler for us.

Faith based watercolour prints and cards from our heart to yours.
Hi! I'm Anna, and I love to paint about my friend, Jesus.
I'll paint anywhere you'll let me, and I'll paint anything that helps the world learn a bit more about how incredibly faithful He is.
Hope and Grace began as the quiet dream of an eighteen year old Anna who loved to paint and had recently discovered the soul building quality of the point where watercolour and scripture meet. Some years later, The Hope and Grace Design Company was born out of that place.
Using a unique style of watercolour lettering, and a love of the joy of The Word of God, Hope&Grace exists to inspire and encourage you in your faith and daily life.
I paint each design by hand before ensuring the highest quality print for you, and I pray that each is full of the hope that can only be found in Jesus.
I live just outside of Bath, England and take a huge amount of inspiration from the surrounding beauty of this area that I get to call home.
Thanks for visiting Hope&Grace - its great to see you here!
