Ask and He shall answer...

I've wanted to use my craftiness for the Lord in some way. I prayed that the Lord would show me a way to use the gift that He has so graciously given to me. The gift of paper craftiness I call it... :) I believe that I paper craft for a reason and I have been asking God to show me that reason, to show me the path that He wants me to take. What He wants me to do with this gift?

I have been doing some things for our Church, friends and family. I love that part. I love to be able to do something for the Lord from the heart. To see people smile and get so excited!!!! Brings JOY to my heart!!! I've been blessed abundantly. I have a husband that encourages me in my hobby, Church, friends and family that encourage me and lift me up when needed!!!

The last couple of week I've been really praying that God would help me use this hobby more for Him. And just couple of days ago I believe that He has answered my prayer and I am so excited!!!

You see my daddy has a Russian Christian Book store in Portland, Oregon. He has just moved his location and is doing some major work in his new store. So, the Lord send me a thought of making cards for my dad's store. How cool would that be? So I went on a hunt for some Russian stamps, but didn't find any with Bible Scriptures. So the next best thing would be to print them. And so I did. I am so excited! I've been working for the last couple of days making cards for him and did well over 20 different types of cards now. But the part that is exciting the most to me is that I got couple of cards with Bible Scriptures in Russian and I just know that mom and dad are going to be so thrilled!!!!

So here we go...

The first card the Bible verse is "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong." 1-Corinthians 16:13

Second card is "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation." Isaiah 12:2

I took this pic last night in the house it was dark already sorry.
Bible verse is "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." John 13:34

Thank you for reading this post and for being part of my hobby! I hope that you have found some inspiration in this post. I can't wait to get these cards to my dad!!! :)
