One of my favorite songs is "So Will I"
Part of it goes like this...
Verse 1
"God of creation there at the start
before the beginning of time
with no point of reference You spoke to the dark 
and fleshed out the wonder of light.
Chorus 1
And as You speak a hundred billion galaxies are born
In the vapor of Your breathe the planets form
If the stars were made to worship so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You've made
Every burning star a signal fire of grace
If creation sings Your praises so will I"
Verse 2
God of Your promise
You don't speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken all nature and science
follow the sound of Your voice
Chorus 2
And as You speak a hundred 
billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky a canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You so will I"
There are more verses, If you would like to hear it or see the rest of the lyrics you can find it on line.  So Will I by Hillsong

The Bible says that God wants all to come to Him, that is not exclusive at all.  He does not want any to perish but it is up to us because He gave all of us free will.     2 Peter 3:9 

"The Lord isn’t really being slow about His promise, as some people think. No, He is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent". 
God's word also says that He so loved EVERYONE that He gave His only son to die in our place because none are righteous.

John 3:16 

16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave[a] His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. 
Jesus the Christ, God's only son said in John 14:6 
 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me".  
So the only thing you have to decide is: Was Jesus who He said He was? Many witnesses testify He was, OR was Jesus crazy or a liar? 
 Jesus actually lived that is a fact.  Hundreds of people saw Him crucified, that is a fact, and then later saw Him alive, that is a fact.  Many thousands saw Him do so many miracles they could not all be written down, these are all historical facts.
I know who I believe in and He has changed my life, how about you? 
God's word says ALL have sinned, it does not matter what you have done, He loves you and wants you to come to Him.  Believe in Him, that He died for you and rose again from the dead, turn from your sin asking Jesus to forgive you and ask Him to become your Lord and Savior then follow Him (that is make Him your boss and do like He did while He was on His word so you know what He did).  But don't worry if you are not perfect, no one is...we all sin but He is faithful and just to forgive us when we belong to Him and ask Him to forgive.

Card size: 6 X 6 5/8”.  Cut card base 12 X 6 5/8”, fold in half to make 6 X 6 5/8” card.  Cut a Pearlescent white 6 X 6 5/8” and glue to base.  Cut whit cardstock 5 3/4 X 6 3/8” then use the embossing folder (need to run through folder twice as it is not wide enough).  Glue embossed panel to card.  Cut 2 Petite Pocket Accents (wide die) out of Pearlescent then cut 2 narrow out of lavender.  Cut Daydream Bridge Die out of white.  Glue pocket accents dies and Daydream die to card, popping up Daydream die.  Cut large eyelet heart out of lavender and 1 Eyelet heart a bit smaller out of the pearlescent cardstock.  Pop up the lavender heart then glue the white Pearl heart to it.  Add Dots of Pearl-Pen Ice White to each intersection in the embossed panel.

Stamp Posies using Lu Lu Lavender and sponge color on then die cut and form (see video above), give and extra squeeze to each petal at the ends to form a new type flower.  Layer the flowers with 2 or 3 blossom layers and brush tips again with more Lu Lu Lavender ink.  Fill smaller flower centers with Prills and add dyed stamen to the centers of the larger flowers (I sprayed the stamen with yellow ink and dried completely before handling).

Glue the colored branches and kitties to the hearts then add the flowers.  Glue the flowers onto the branches and the swing ropes.  Stamp sentiment with Purple Brilliance and die cut then tuck into branch/flowers on the left side.  Glitter all the flowers and add a bit of glitter to card face.

Card size: 6 X 6”.  The top of this card is shaped so take a piece of 12 X 6” white, fold it in half then use the outside part of the Elegant Pocket Accents die over the fold leaving the top of the die off the fold so that it does not cut the card in half but leaves the fold in tack (about 1” of the fold).  Cut another panel for the front with the full die cut at the top and also a purple decorative paper front of the same cut.  Glue the purple to the card front,  cut a slit for the pocket and then glue this stack to  the front of the folded card base leaving the pocket section open to insert tag.  Cut 1 Elegant Pocket Accents including the corners in that set, out of white also cut 2 decorative Pocket Accents out of white.  Glue the decorative Elegant Pocket Accents to the top matching edges and glue the 2 Decorative Pocket Accents to the slit part of the front, one facing up, one facing down.   Glue corners to each of the bottom corners.

Stamp Happy birthday on a piece of white cardstock and use the long die in the Tickets and tags set to cut it out, shortening it to suit.  Cut the large tag from this set and the tag top out of white, the smaller tag and tag top out of decorative paper, cut one small oval tag from the decorative paper. Glue the decorative tag to the white and the same with the tag top, glue the small oval to the tag at the top after inserting a ribbon.

Stamp Lush Lilac blossoms sponge with purple and die cut, shape with Mold and glue green Prills to the centers of each blossom.  Stamp the small Lilac spray with Fern Green, sponge with Vivid Chartreuse and die cut.  Glue the sprays to the card, 1 on each side at the bottom, 1 on left top.  Glue Lilac blossom on top of sprays and a few on top of tag.  Randomly glitter the entire card.  Add some purple Prills in clusters along some of the Lilac blossoms.

Here is some words to a song I really like.  "Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me
Oh the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God...
I couldn't earn it and I don't deserve it, still, You gave Yourself away..."
