"Get Your Faith Lifted" and Winner Announced...

Hi Friends~

I found this beautiful piece this morning that I think you will enjoy...and then we will see who won this week's "Card Set of the Week!"  and how many cards will be given!

First, this wonderful Devotion from "Quiet Moments in the Presence of God."  Their Devotions are published by Bethany House.

Get Your Faith Lifted

"When Jesus heard this, he was astonished and said to those following him, "I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such faith."  (Matthew 8:10)

When Jesus commended the soldier for his great trust, he was making a faith comparison.  By applauding the military commander for believing his servant could be healed, Jesus was saying some people have more faith than others.  To increase your faith, spend time with God and draw close to Him.

The important thing in faith development is not to compare where you are to others but to compare it where you are to others but to compare it with yourself.  Where are you now in comparison to where you were before?  Is your faith being lifted to a higher level?  In your faith, be superior to your previous self.  In your Christian life, have a faith that regularly increases and steadily rises.

Your faith increases as you focus more and more on who God is to you.

"You have accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord.  Now keep on following Him.  Plant your roots in Christ and let him be the foundation for your life.  Be strong in your faith, just as you were taught.  And be grateful." (Colossians 2:6-7)


OK, let's see who will win 9 Cards from the He IS Able Blog!

Why 9?  Because we randomly chose the comment from the past week through Tuesday evening at 8pm like every week.  And, we have randomly chosen the number of cards to be given away...and the number was to be chosen between 1-10 cards!  This week's cards will be for all different occasions...

This Week's Winner is Becky Dunham when she left her comment on December 26th!  Congratulations, Becky!  We are so glad you are here, and we hope you will continue to visit us on Mondays, Wednesdays and could receive the post of the blog via email in the top rectangle on the right hand side of the blog!  Becky, please email me by next Tuesday at 8pm with your snail mail address, and I will be happy to send you the 9 cards/envelopes.

We love and appreciate all of our guests, but sadly, we can only send items to people living in the USA, due to the costs of postage.  We hope you will all continue to visit the He IS Able blog, as we encourage each other to grow closer to Him, and to share the Gospel with people we may or may not know.  After all, that is how our Card Give-Away started!  We hope that you will use your cards to share about "His Love, His Word, and His Gift of Salvation through Card Give-Aways!"

See you on Friday!  God Bless!

He IS Able!
