How Do You Look at Him? Card Winner Announced!

Hi Friends~
This is Wednesday, and someone will be winning the "Card of the Week!"  Also, there is a wonderful piece to meditate on from the Quiet Moments in the Presence of God.  It is published by Bethany House.  And, there is a new card posted on the side for someone to win next week!
First, let's take a look at that piece from Quiet Moments in the Presence of God.  This is a direct quote except for the Scriptures that I inserted.

How You Look At It
"The closer you get to God, the more your perspective about God changes.  Through the eyes of reverence, God comes across in a different way.  Who He is becomes clearer.  It was said of an early-twentieth-century photographer that he had the "ability to see beyond the lens."  So, also can you.
God is like a prism.  What you see depends on how you turn the glass.  Turn it in faith and see the greatness of God.  Turn it in love and see the warmth of God.  Turn it in hope and see the promises of God.  Turn it in anticipation and see the guidance of God.  Turn it in assurance and see the eternity of God.
The closer you get to God, the more of Him you see."
Turn it in faith and see the greatness of God...
           "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world.  And this
 is the victory that has overcome the world--our faith."  1 John 5:4 

Turn it in love and see the warmth of God...
     "For the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me,
  and have believed that I came forth from God."   John 16:27
Turn it in hope and see the promises of God...
              "And all things, whatever you ask in prayer; 
                  believing, you will receive."  Matthew 21:22
"Ask and it will be given to you;
seek, and you will find;
  knock, and it will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives,
and he who seeks finds,
and to him who knocks it will be opened.
If you then, being evil, know how much more will your Father who is in Heaven give good things to those who ask Him!"
Matthew 7:7-8,11
Turn it in anticipation and see the guidance of God...
"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
and He delights in his way."  Psalm 37:23 
There are so many different Scriptures that fall under these categories.  Take
the time to look in the Bible, look into His Word to find more!
Now the "Card of the Week!"  The comment that was randomly chosen from the past week belonged to the amazing, Grace of "Th-ink-ing of You!"
Congratulations, Grace!  Here is your comment:
