Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 28 . . . Prayer and Praise


This week's challenge hostess is the lovely and talented Pamela whose scrapbook pages always leave me with my jaw on the floor. They're always so detailed and fresh. Her chosen verse this week is from Colossians 3:17 "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

Her challenge is this . . . You have free reign of what you want to do this week. But here's the deal: I want you to actively do this as an act of worship to our God. Before starting, pray. Thank God for your gift. While working, feel free to pray more or perhaps sing out to Him. Put your focus on Him and remember that it is He who gave you your gift (however good or bad you think you are at this)and remember that it makes Him happy to see you at work. Do this challenge as if you were doing it for Christ himself!

I want to thank Pamela for helping put our focus back on the creator, the one who gave us this gift of stamping, the gift of creativity. Its a great idea to think daily upon and thank and praise the Father for every good gift we have in this life. I would assume that anyone reading this is a stamper or crafty in some way, can you imagine your life without it? What a marvelous gift!

I was listening to Sounds of Majesty on Moody Radio while I was making my card and praying for a variety of friends who have challenges in their lives right now. I hope to always glorify the Lord through my creations. Hope you find a chance to get in prayer and create along with the design team this week.

Our sponsor this week is Christian Paper Crafts, which is donating a stamp set, and you can read more details on the home page at Stampin' Sisters in Christ here. Thanks for looking.
