So guess who the challenge comes from this week at! :)
My Challenge:
Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
"The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
I am in a Bible study on Esther, and it has got me thinking about those times when we can't see or hear God. It is in those times that we just have to rely on the truth we know...that God is always with us...even when He remains silent. My challenge for you this week is to create something about when God is "unseen". You can make a scrapbook layout that reminds you that God is always with you, or you can make a card to encourage a friend and remind them that God is with them. You could even make something to hang on your wall. Just a reminder, that when you do this you will not only be reminded of God's presence in your own life, but it may be just the thing that someone else needs to see...whether they see it on your wall, in your scrapbooks or in a card. We can lead others to Christ, even through our work.
Here's what I created for this challenge. It is a scrapbook page, although there are no pictures on it. It is for a special album I am making about my faith.

Some close up's:

I really hope you take the time to play along with us this week! :)

I had such a great time making a project to coincide with your challenge this week Pamela, what a great reminder! One that we need to think about every day, God is near. And this scrapbook page is amazing, I'm in awe . . .I have no scrapbook talent. That is going to be a lovely book when you're finished . . . will you publish it and send me a copy? :)
