To God Be The Glory

Good morning all.
 Well it has been a busy week for me, I worked yesterday Sat. with only 2 hours of sleep and working with 8 men. One reminded the others that I do not like profanity used in my presence and as the conversation went on the statement came up "that God is a women". I told them that is false, that God was a man. Then one proceeded to tell me he has never read that and that he doesn't know what translation I have been reading. I told him I have read every translation and I read daily, I strongly lead him & the others through a few verses stating that God is called father and HE... Which turned the conversation into salvation, they stated they are all going to hell with the rest of their friends and I told them how foolish, you will never see your friends because hell is total darkness, total separation,  continuous suffering, No hope of getting out. Their only hope is now, why they are alive, to except Jesus Christ as their Lord and redeemer.
I do not believe in coincidences, I believe God chose that day and that moment for these men to hear the gospel. I pray the words of the Lord penetrated their souls. To God Be The Glory..

Well I did have some time to create a few cards for some challenges. :)

I made this for Splitcoast stampers, try a new technique-down under.  I used recollections white and Authentique design paper. and a small spellbinders heart & curve dies. The verse is from Our Daily Bread Scripture collection #7. This card was also picked as a weekly favorite at Splitcoast stampers :).. 


This is for House mouse Challenge, love is in the air. This is one of the stamps I won from HM challenge. The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Micheal's.


And this card I made for Our Daily Bread, chose a color challenge.
The die is a custom die from ODB "eternity". ODB Asters & leaves, I am in love with this die, can't you tell..

Well that is it for me.  I pray all of you will have a blessed week.

Oh Becky, thank God for his son, and the work of the cross. I am so thankful to be saved. The thought of total separation and the other things you told these men is bone chilling to me. As a believer in Jesus Christ I am so grateful that it is not the road I am on. The things you told these men are complete truth, and I was moved to tears as I read your words. I am so proud of you and your continued witness for the Lord. It is a blessing to call you sister (in the Lord). I hope you have a wonderful day. P.S. Your card is beautiful.

Becky, I love all your work. That top card is magnificent. Thank you for sharing your conversation. It is sad that people think Hell is going to be a party place for them and their friends. I have heard that before too. I am so grateful for eyes that see and I want to be a living testimony for others and always ready to to tell about the hope we have within. I appreciate you.

I got interrupted while I was commenting so I'm not sure if my comment went through or not...
So I will try again...smile.
All of these cards are just lovely! And I can see why your first card made the "favorites" thread. I really like that technique and haven't tried it yet...you have so inspired me to give it a try.
