Creative Corner: Acrostic Challenge!

We challenged you to write acrostics using the first letters of your name, and we received many creative responses!

Remember your Creator in your youth.
Awake to righteousness and do not sin.
Commit your way to the Lord.
Hold fast the confession of your faith.
Enter not into the path of the wicked.
Lay hold on eternal life.

Continue earnestly in prayer.
Humble yourselves.
Obey them that have the rule over you.
Live peaceably with all men.
Let no one despise your youth.
Earnestly contend for the faith.
Trust in the Lord, and do good.
Tell of all His marvelous works.
–Rachel Chollett, age 17

My grace is sufficient for thee.
 In all thy ways acknowledge Him.
Surely I come quickly.
He shall cover thee with His feathers.
thousand shall fall but not thee.
Examine me, O Lord.
Love your enemies.

Pray without ceasing.
Rejoice in the Lord always.
 I will sing praise to Thy name forever.
Vain is the help of man.
Evening, morning, and noon will I pray.
Thy word have I hid in my heart.
The Lord has done great things for us.
–Mishael Privett, age 13

Eagles wings He’ll give you; only you
Must wait for His perfect,
Marvelous timing—
And you will not grow weary.

Faith is the evidence not seen, and
Enthroned above, He will
Never leave you nor forsake you.
Whom shall I fear?
 I will trust in Him when I’m afraid.
Cast all your cares on Him, and
Know that your Redeemer liveth!
–Emma Fenwick, age 14

Let no man despise thy youth; be
An example of the believers.
U will seek Me and find Me when you
search for Me with all your heart.
Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy.
Even in the hard times I will
Never leave you or forsake you.
–Lauren Fenwick, age 11

Behold, I stand at the door and knock.
Everyone who seeks will find.
Come unto Me and I will give you rest.
Knock, and the door shall be opened.
Ye believe in God; believe also in Me.
–Becky Stone, age 13

New Challenge: Portray a Parable
Illustrations can powerfully portray truth. For this challenge, submit a mixed-media illustration of one of Christ’s parables. Mixed media is artwork that uses more than one medium. For example, you could combine paint, ink, and natural materials such as real flowers and grass. You might craft a seashore scene with glue and tissue paper, and then add real sand, a tiny net, and construction-paper fishes. Parable scenes could include growing plants, seeds and sowers, rocky soil, weeds, leaven, sheep, salt, oil lamps, nets, vineyards, a house on a rock, or anything else that Christ spoke about in a parable. Your imagination is the only limit! Include a caption with your work.

This challenge is open to all young disciples between the ages of 10 and 18. Mail your entry (or a close-up, clear photograph of your creation) to Creative Corner, Young Disciple Ministries, PO Box 400, Inchelium, WA 99138. You may also e-mail a link to your high-resolution photo. For details, send an e-mail to Please include your age and mailing address with your entry. We will review all entries, and publish our selections in the first quarter of 2015.

Due Date: August 31, 2014
