Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 41 . . . hearts

Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ! Our hostess this week is the lovely Linda! Her verse for the week is Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Her challenge is to use a heart on your card or project, it can be on your DP, an image or an embelllishment.

Oour fabulous sponsor this week is Digitual Delights by Louby Lou, which is donating five digi images to the winner. http://www.digitaldelightsbyloubyloo.com.

What a great verse Linda has selected, you can read her thoughts on the home page and see the samples from the rest of the design team. And we hope you find time to participate this week.
To the logical mind, this verse makes so much sense. Without faith it is impossible to please him . . . well yes! If you don't have faith, you don't believe, if you don't believe in something you aren't even beginning to try to please Him. How can you uplease God if you don't believe he exists?

And the Lord rewards those who diligently seek him. Diligence is going to look different for every individual. It will be based on your intellect, your spirit, your heart, your health. What does diligence look like to you?

Some questions to ask yourself, how do you define faith? Has your faith grown? How has faith impacted your life? That entire chapter of Hebrews is a wonderful passage of exhortation to remind the believer of the giants of the bible who demonstrated and are remembered for their faith, reminders that we can live by faith as they did.

Have a great week walking by faith!
