Scripture Challenges to share!

Just wanted to share these two "scripture cards" that I made a couple of weeks ago for the Faith Sister's Scripture Challenges.  These challenges have been so wonderful!  It is a great way to study God's Word.  I am even keeping a notebook of other verses I have found related to the different subjects.  Unfortunately, I can't fit all the verses on my card.  So I have been using the verse from the bible that spoke to me the most!  

When I saw the word "treasure", I was a bit confused at first.  As I read Patter's devotion on "treasure", God was immediately speaking to me!  I knew I  had to do some re-prioritizing in my life!  With our busy lives, we tend to put God at the end of our "to-do" list.  I know I am guilty of this.  I am working everyday to put God first in all I do.  And when I forget, I now have my little card I can pull out to remind me!  I chose the following two verses for my card this week:

Corinthians 4:7 "But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us."

Matthew 6:21 "For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be."


I loved this week's scripture challenge on God's "leading"!  These past few weeks I have felt God speaking to me in so many different forms.  Following his lead is not always easy, matter of fact, it can be very hard at times.  For years, I have always done things my way and well, that got me nowhere!  I ask God every day to lead me in the right path and when I start to detour from that path, to give me the strength to get right back on it!  I chose the following verses for this week's card:

Psalm 25:5 "Guide me in your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long."

I am also very excited!  Faith Sisters is having a nine week challenge...the challenge: "The True Meaning of Christmas"  I can't wait to get started!  I think I'm going to do a mini album that will be easy to share with the kids!  And they are offering a free digital kit to get started!  Although, I don't digi scrap, I downloaded it anyways!  It's gorgeous!  Go check them out!

Thanks for sharing. I know that for me the part of letting God direct me in all I do is one of the things I struggle with as well. My problem is knowing where he wants me to go, praying about it and then not listening. SOmetimes I still think I know best.. I get so frustrated at my boys when they ask for my advice or direction and then totally ingnore it, I think this must be how GOd feels, when we do this to Him! I am going to check out the faith sisters challenge. TFS!

Being a "control freak" it's very hard for me to just let go and allow God's control to show in my life. I think I might be a copycat and make these cards for myself! Thanks for the inspiration, Nancy!
