Hope Grows

How are all of my blogging friends  doing? I am doing great!
I was in church tonight and a 68 year old women got up to testify. She had throat cancer and was going through chemo, the Lord had told her she would be healed and she was, as she was at home recuperating a women high on drugs broke into her house to rob her, she called out "Jesus I need you NOW!" A fight began, the girl tried to stab her in the chest and the women grabbed hold of the blade and pushed the girl off of her and was able to fight her and throw her out the door. I had read about this and was so blessed she came out to church tonight and gave her testimony of God's mighty hand. It was so appropriate because our pastor had preached this morning on "Stop Limiting God."

I made this card for the sketch challenge at Stamp TV. Free for all Friday's.

Recipe:
Stamp: Hope Grows Gina K
Paper: Gina K luxury white, K&Co design paper

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Week

Beautiful card and testimony! How easy it is for us in our mere human form to "think" that the LORD works like we do! I know the LORD is changing my thinking, in taking the things the world thinks is BAD and know that the LORD is refining me through those opportunities to grow closer in HIM through my faith! TFS! Have a blessed day!
