Praise Him First Thing and A Winner of 4 Cards Announced!

Hi Friends~

I hope you are enjoying your week. As I stated in the last post, I am still feeling rather disconnected from God.  I don't know why.  I just feel alone, although I know that is not true.  "He will not leave nor forsake us."  I still have not made it into my art room, so I do not have any cards to share yet.  Hopefully, I will on Monday...which by the way, will be my next post.

The Winner of this week's He IS Able Blog's Card Set of the Week is...

Shelly Schmidt!!!!!

Shelly, please email me to let me know you do want these 4 cards!  Please reach me by Tuesday at 8pm...which is the deadline to leave a comment for next week's random drawing of the recipient and the number of cards/envelopes.

I would like to list some wonderful Scriptures below...I hope if they are not already some of your favorites, they will be after reading them.

"Be exalted, O Lord, in Your strength;
We will sing and praise Your power."
(Psalm 21:13)

"Let the light of your face shine upon us, O Lord.
You have filled my heart with greater joy
than when their grain and new wine abound.
I will lie down and sleep in peace,
for you alone, O Lord,
make me dwell in safety."
(Psalm 4:6-8)

"Let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You.
For You, O Lord, will bless the righteousness
With favor You will surround him as with a shield."
(Psalm 5:11-12)

"O sing unto the Lord a new song:
sing unto the Lord, all the earth!"
(Psalm 96:1)

I hope you will join me...and before you get out of bed, before your feet touch the ground...Praise the Lord!  Sing a song, say a prayer, list 5 adjectives that describe His faithfulness...praise is a personal thing.  Do it as you believe He would like...from the heart!

He IS Able!

      I love reading Scripture, and hope that others do also. I am hoping that maybe our guests are memorizing some of them. They are starting to stick in my mind is great!
