Barb H! YEAH!!! Congratulations!!!
Here's Barb's Comment to the question:
"What is your favorite Bible verse?"
I have several favorites, but this has always been one of the main ones...
"Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, The Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak and to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
OHHHHH the power, mercy and faitfulness of God that is displayed here! There has been great reassurance and comfort to me through the years in these verses.
Oh by the way....
PICK ME, PICK ME, PICK ME!!!!! :)
I decided a few days ago that I wanted to try doing a giveaway on my blog. A simple way to bless others and a sneaky way to find out who might be reading this thing! So periodically I'll be having a giveaway and all you have to do to enter is....leave a comment! Just one comment entry per person please (and if you leave a potty mouth comment a.k.a. leave a comment that is inappropriate, it'll get deleted--) This could be a very humbling experience either way this thing goes...tons of comments or none at all!
So here's the question...and its an easy one...
told you it was an easy one...
The giveaway ends at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time on Friday (1/2/2009) and the winner will be randomly picked. And by random I mean, I'll put on a blindfold, have Mark spin me around three times and then I'll point to a comment on the computer monitor. So that's about it...oh wait, I forgot! What's the giveaway?!?
Okay, my first ever giveaway is from one of my absolutely favorite Bible teachers, Kay Arthur. I was invited to a Kay Arthur study way back in 1993 (thanks Barb T.) and during the first week of the bible study I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I've done many of her 'Lord' series studies as well as attended a Precept training. She is one of the most powerful Bible teachers I've ever heard. I was even blessed to meet her at a Focus on the Family event in Tampa in the late 90's.
on the back cover:
'Do you long for a greater, more personal understanding of God and His Word? A way to study the Bible that will transform the way you think and live? With inductive study, God Himself becomes your teacher as you learn how to "hang on His every word" and discover truth for yourself. It's life-changing!
With Kay's helpful explanations, hands-on exercises, and discussion questions, your Bible reading time will become an exciting step forward in your spiritual walk.'
plus pencils, pencil sharpener, pens, highlighters, colored pencils, 2009 planner and a journal!
So get ready... get set... comment!
