Scripture Challenge {Week 1}

After many weeks of waiting, our Scripture Challenge finally begins. Can you believe it? I am excited as I know all of you are! God laid it on my heart to do this challenge but I never imagined the numbers of participants He would call. I am humbled at what He has done thus far. He is amazing! I only pray that each week He will enable me to guide each of you through the challenge. I am sure He will use all of us to learn from each other too. He knows each of our needs, He knows where He wants us all to grow, and He knows where He wants to lead each of us. During our year this year, I will not be teaching by any means. I will be guiding as God enables me and waiting to see how He leads each of you each week. Rely on Him as you do this challenge. Ask Him to show you what He wants you to see as you read and discover.

God clearly told me that He wants us to look at Faith this week. What is faith? Why do you believe what you believe? Faith as defined by Webster’s is “1. unquestioning belief that does not require proof or evidence. 2. Unquestioning belief in God.” If you want to read the Faith Hall of Fame, read Hebrews 11. These men and women completely trusted God without needing proof of anything. Jesus is the object of my faith. Who or what is the object of your faith? Use the resources to help you.

Week One Challenge Word: Faith

I used the spectacular January kit from Create My Keepsake to complete my Faith card for this week. And the scripture God had me use was Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” And I also used Galations 2:20 “I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."
Look through your Bible, look through devotionals, and see what God says about faith. Have fun creating your cards and pages. You have all week (or all year for that matter) to complete your cards and pages. Create as much as you are inspired to create. And be sure join in our discussion thread here in this thread on the Faith Sisters forum. Let us know when you finish creating too so we can take a peak! Have fun, and soak up everything He shows you this week! Blessings for a joyous and faith-filled week everyone!

OMW - God burdened my heart last week about faith and trust. Last week, I had been mulling in my head about a layout about what Mary's faith must have been like to bear the son of God and to trust the way she did. I was thinking of doing a layout about Mary saying YES and how I needed to learn to say YES in more aspects of my life ... notice, I said THINKING ... I hope that your challenge turns THINKING into scrapbook ACTION which then puts my thoughts into words ... which then holds me accountable. Thanks for the challenge.
