Thanks Julia and Gwen for understanding! And yes, sanctification is so important. I hesitated to use this as one of our words but God really laid it on my heart, and then this morning in my Bible study leader's meeting, He really gave me confirmation as we discussed Jesus changing the water to wine in John Chapter 2, and how He transforms our lives and we need to cooperate with Him in that process. I love how He confirms things for me each week!

And snow, Gwen? Wow! And here I am freezing in 60 degree weather when it should still be in the 70s/80s! I pray that you are able to have good weather to bring in those crops!

Have a blessed day everyone!

I just found this quote on Steve Camp's blog about the Trinity. I thought it was worth sharing as we study the One who sanctifies us!
I guess I never thought about the Spirit's involvement in Christ's life while He was on earth:
"the Spirit of God sanctified Christ’s human nature; he united it with the divine, and fitted the man Christ to be our Meditator."
Thomas Watson (lived in the 1600s)

And a little more from him about the Spirit's role in OUR sanctification:
"The third person in the Trinity is the Holy Ghost, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, whose work is to illuminate the mind, and enkindle sacred motions. The essence of the Spirit is in heaven, and everywhere; but the influence of it is in the hearts of believers. This is that blessed Spirit who gives us the holy unction. I John ii 20. Though Christ merits grace for us, it is the Holy Ghost that works it in us. Though Christ makes the purchase, it is the Holy Ghost that makes the assurance, and seals us to the day of redemption."

Here is my page for Sanctifier:
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=214241
This was a really good study for me, reminds me to "keep keepin' on" as I walk with the Lord by faith...DAY BY DAY! It is only by the power of His Spirit in me that I can grow in my faith, be transformed, live a more godly life. But the same Spirit who sanctified Christ while he was on earth is willing to sanctify ME! That somehow is a lightbulb moment for me. I really need to yield more so that I will sin less. "Don't be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind...." Romans 12:2.

Challenge Word 22: Peace

God’s Attribute: The Lord is our Peace. He is our Jehovah-Shalom.

How does this affect my daily life? Do you long for peace in a situation? Has fear gripped you or do you feel like you will ‘lose it’ if one more thing happens? Well, God is our Peace, and He is the source of all peace. But none of us can find that peace if we do not have a right relationship with God. If you have that right relationship with Him, then you know that regardless of our circumstances, His peace is perfect. He gives us internal peace by placing the Holy Spirit in our hearts as we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. But to truly experience His real peace, we need to be in His presence daily. Are you too busy to study His Word? Are you seeking Him in ALL things? Are you trying to handle the situation on your own? If you have ever tried that before, then you know where that will probably get you. Give it all to Him in prayer so that you are not robbed of His peace.

Ann Spangler said “To live in the presence of God through the power of the Holy Spirit is to be at peace—at peace with God, with others, with ourselves. He is the source of true shalom, of prosperity, harmony, safety, healthy, and fulfillment. No matter how turbulent our world becomes, we can be at peace, showing forth His presence regardless of circumstances.”

For my page this week, I used the wonderful Webster's Pages 6x6 papers. I also used the Layers of Color Royal Birds stamp. It went so perfectly with this page, and to me, I see peace in all of His creation. So, the flowers on the page, the added bird, etc., show me the amazing peace that surrounds me. You can see my entire page here.

The scriptures I used were:
Isaiah 26:12 "LORD, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us."
Romans 5:1 "Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our LORD Jesus Christ."

Remember to use Keyword HHN09 when posting in the gallery! I will see you again on Nov. 8th with a new study. I hope that you remember that even though we enjoy His peace we still face difficulties that help us grow. Don’t turn away or be discouraged but instead depend on the power of the Holy Spirit that indwells you and experience that peace in all situations. Blessings and peace to you,

Here is my Peace page. It just all came together last night once the idea popped into my head. The prophecy about Jesus being the Prince of Peace and the Alpine Frost goodies I had won were the perfect combination so I went with a bit of a Christmas-y theme. We all long for peace in this very broken world, so thankful for the peace that passes understanding that comes with relying on God!!

Hi Everyone, I went to VA for a couple of weeks to play with my grandson and I'm just now getting caught up on the challenges. Actually, I think I'm still missing one from back in June. I'll have to check on that.

Anyway, here are the links for my Sanctify page and my Peace page:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=201319

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...&ppuser=201319

For Sanctify, I used 1 Thess. 5:23-24. After creating this I realized it's the same verse I used for faithful, but that's okay. I really like this verse because it tells me God is the one who does the sanctifing, not me. I'm just to obey.

For Peace, I used Phil. 4:6-7. As soon as I saw this Name, I knew which verse I'd end up using. Whenever I think of God's peace, this is the verse that comes to mind. Maybe because I've claimed this many, many times.

Trust everyone is well. blessings, shelia

Great time looking at everyone's pages. Glad you guys are catching up!! I've been super busy as things have finally dried up enough for us to get lots of harvesting done this week. Only 15 acres of beans left and we are working on the corn now. Another week or two of very long days. Please pray for safety for us as we work around the machinery and as we get rather more tired as time goes on!!
Have a great weekend!

I'm really far behind but started with Peace to catch up. If you read what's on the description there, you'll understand what's been going on in my life. Maybe! Anyways, I hope to catch up soon. Sorry I don't participate in discussions much. Thanks for looking.

Welcome Rochelle - sorry no one has welcomed you before now - this group has gone really quiet of late - I don't know what Patter is planning for next year as she is currently dealing with stuff in her private life, from the sounds of her last few posts.

There is no compulson to start or finish on any date, so I am sure you can work through these challenges in your own time

Blessings
Maxine (aka kiwime)

I got Patters last challenge via email from her blog, but I see she has not posted here, so will cut and paste and post here in case others have missed last Mondays challenge.




His Holy Name {Challenge 23, Banner}
God’s Attribute: The Lord is my Banner. He is my Jehovah-nissi.

How does this affect my daily life? What is your constant enemy? Notice I didn’t say ‘who’ is your constant enemy? I think we can all say ‘the flesh’ is our biggest and constant enemy. In our flesh, we are jealous, fearful, angry, lustful, envious, depressed, etc. And when we are tired and overworked or when we have been called into a new ministry for Him, it is even easier to be attacked. As we face those challenges and changes in our life, rely on Jehovah-nissi. He will give you the strength. Walk with the Spirit and die to the flesh. And don’t surrender to Satan. Stand firm in Jehovah-nissi. You are not alone; look to Him.

Kay Arthur said “Under the banner of God, victory is always assured but apart from it, defeat is a certainty. Only by abiding under the power, the standard, the banner, the ensign of your Jehovah-nissi can you have victory over the flesh, the world, the devil, and your enemies and God’s.”

I don't have a page for you this week as we are still dealing with some things here but I wanted you to still have your study. The scriptures I personally loved for this week were:

Exodus 17:15 "Moses built an altar and called it The LORD is my Banner."
Psalm 60:4 "But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow."

Remember to use Keyword HHN09 when posting in online galleries, and to chat about the challenge, join us in this thread here on Splitcoaststampers! And remember not to deal with things in your own power. Give them to your Jehovah-nissi who will give you victory over the flesh, the world, and the devil. May the Lord fill you with His strength and cover you with His banner. In Him, Patter.

Thanks so much Maxine! I was starting to realize that we should have gotten an attribute this past week - I was so happy to catch up that I was letting that thought slip!!!

thanks for posting it here for us - I hope Patter is doing ok - will keep her in my prayers.

Here's an excerpt from a posting by Patter, which gives us some direction for praying.

"Unfortunately with my husband being ill and having been in the hospital, I am unable to keep posting so many things in so many different places. I also need the ability to schedule things in advance so I can work when God gives me those glimpses of time."

I will cut and paste next weeks challenge if she misses posting it here.

Blessings
Maxine

Hello ladies - don't faint from the shock but I have actually strated catching up on the studies - as we all know times just flies. Here is my card for BREAD of LIFE or you can find it on SCS

I prayed and asked God to help me get things in order so I could get these studies happening, as faith based cards are my passion and then Laura from Layers of Color (I am on the Design Team along with Patter) announced she was starting Faith Friday on the Layers of Color Blog, so I am going to do my HHN cards for that - pop over and check it out if you get the opportunity - Laura shares from the heart, along with her fabulous gift of art!! God bless you ladies and see you again real soon - I am looking forward to going through your galleries and being inspired by YOUR faith art!!

Here is today's study - Patter seems not to have posted here... Blessings all. Maxine.


Challenge 24, Provider
God’s Attribute: God is our Provider. He is our Yahweh Yireh.

How does this affect my daily life? When you think of “provision,” what do you think of? Material things? Food? Or do you think of things like strength and wisdom? And who do you look to to provide for your needs? A friend? Your spouse? We should be looking to God and trusting Him for His provision. And He not only provides the physical things but He also provides for our emotional and spiritual needs too. Think of the strength and wisdom He gives during times of trial. Think of the joy you feel even when you are not happy. Happiness is based on circumstances but He can give us joy even in those “unhappy” or difficult moments.

Notice God’s attribute is Yahweh Yireh. Well, Yireh means “to see.” God is eternal and all-knowing. He not only provides for our daily needs but also for our need for salvation. He provided for our eternal need through the death and resurrection of His Son. Romans 8:32 says “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave Him up for us all—how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?” Such a perfect scripture showing your Yahweh Yireh!

Today I wanted to share another one of my favorite old hymns with you—"Though Troubles Assail Us." Notice how each verse ends in “The Lord will provide.” What an amazing truth to remember.

Though Troubles Assail Us
Though troubles assail us and dangers affright,
Though friends should all fail us and foes all unite,
Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide,
The promise assures us, “The Lord will provide.”

The birds, without garner or storehouse, are fed;
From them let us learn to trust God for our bread.
His saints what is fitting shall ne’er be denied
So long as ’tis written, “The Lord will provide.”

When Satan assails us to stop up our path,
And courage all fails us, we triumph by faith.
He cannot take from us, though oft he has tried,
This heart cheering promise, “The Lord will provide.”

He tells us we’re weak, our hope is in vain,
The good that we seek we never shall obtain,
But when such suggestions, our graces have tried,
This answers all questions, “The Lord will provide.”

No strength of our own and no goodness we claim;
Yet, since we have known of the Savior’s great Name,
In this our strong tower for safety we hide:
The Lord is our power, “The Lord will provide.”

When life sinks apace, and death is in view,
The word of His grace shall comfort us through,
Not fearing or doubting, with Christ on our side,
We hope to die shouting, “The Lord will provide.”

I don’t have a page for you again this week. My husband is still ill, and though I am walking through this difficult time, I can trust that the Lord will provide for us in all things! So, the passage I have chosen for this week is the passage mentioned above:

Romans 8:32 “He who did not spare his own Son, but gave Him up for us all—how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?”

Remember to use Keyword HHN09 when posting in online galleries, and to chat about the challenge, join us in this thread here on Splitcoaststampers. I pray as you study this week that you will lean on our amazing Father, our Provider. Blessings in Him,

Hi there - I have got 'Banner' done, now to start on Provider, and I have some ideas, especially since I bought an old hymnal today that I can use for background dp

Here is my 'Banner'

Great card, Linda!! Enjoyed reading your description. It has been quiet on this thread lately. We've been busy in the field here, harvest has gone on and on and on. We are almost finished and then I'll have to catch up on the last two names. My ds and dil and grand daughters are here Dec. 1-10 so it will most likely be after that when I show up again!!

Cathy, please do not be discouraged. This is a personal challenge and I have many wks to catch up on. I just spent 8 wks in the hospital from pneumonia that turned into ARDS. Being on a vent that progressed to a trach.
I can tell you tho' that I have a deeper relationship with my Savior than ever before. I know what a miracle I am by the grace of God. I no longer have a trach tube in and it has healed completely. I have no after affects from the ARDS and it is all due to God's plan for my life and the prayers of family, friends and even strangers that had me on prayer list. Prayer works and God is still in the miracle working business. God bless!

Maxine, thanks a lot. Yes, my 11 yr old grandson that I am raising have a lot to praise God for this Christmas time. It has been a difficult yr - I lost my favorite aunt and my father n law 2 days apart 1 wk before I became ill.

We don't know the whys of our Lord's plans but we always know it is for the Glory of God and His awesome love for us.

thanks again and Merry Christmas
