Build Your Faith Today...and Tomorrow, too!

Hi Friends~

I hope you enjoyed yesterday's post with a couple of cards.  I am so excited about getting into my art room again. I plan to be sharing much more art  here on the blog. I hope you will like it. I hope that you checked out Patter's ABC Scriptural Study. Are you going to join in? It's never too late.

I decided that I want to introduce you to different Christian Paper Craft Challenges around the net, now and then. Doing this can only help grow our faith and help us memorize Scripture. We always have room for to store more Scriptures in our hearts!
"Faith is being sure of what hope for and certain of what we do not see.  This is what the ancients were commanded for.  By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible...
Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that he exists and the He rewards those who earnestly seek Him."  Hebrews 11:1-3; 6 
(Daily Inspiration from the NIV-by Zondervan)

 This one is a challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts (CPC).  It is called Bible Verse Thursday.  I bet you can guess what day it is held on!  My dear friend Abby is hosting it.  This is what said when posting last week, "Your challenge is to make a project that reflects this scripture, using sheet music, hymns, musical instruments, birds, flowers or other ideas that you may have that show praise to God. Don’t forget, I challenge you to memorize the scripture as well. With the card I made for this challenge, I chose to add an old time hymn Sunshine in the Soul. I thought this fit the theme of my card and scripture perfectly."  Each Thursday she chooses a Scripture, we all make a paper project like a card, bookmark, scrapbook page etc... with the Scripture she chose. There is not a deadline...and it is a wonderful place to meet other Christian women.  And, we memorize the Scripture.  She also gives ideas of things you may want to use to embellish your card or other item...if you want!  You post it on the thread, and they have a gallery! 

Abby has visited this blog many times and her own blog is called "Little Birdie Blessings."  She said that her blog is:
"An area for me to share a few blessings ~ free vintage images ~ papercrafts ~ sewing ~ scripture ~ and my faith." 
And, it is beautiful!  And, she makes the most beautiful art out of Scriptures, and gives away out of this world Digital Vintage art for free.  It is a great blog.  Please visit it.  Leave her some love, and tell her you read about it on the He IS Able blog.

That the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love.  Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith-- the Salvation of your souls.  1 Peter 1:7-9  (Precious Bible Moments)
