it is finished.......

carrying-the-cross

Jesus said in John 19:30. 'it is finished".
you are forgiven.
He took all YOUR and MY sins upon Him. He endured the beatings. He endured the ridicule. He endured the Cross for 6 hours one Friday. He did it so that ALL that you need to do, is accept it. take it and change YOUR way to HIS way. so that you may have eternal life.
it is so easy......
but we keep making excuses....
a farmer places a scarecrow in his field of crops. it scares the birds away. in Christian circles there are often scarecrows - people who do not bear any resemblance to Jesus. people who scare others away from Christ. don't let them do that. you will not be able to use that as an excuse one day when the judgment takes place. look at Jesus. see HIM. see Him carrying the Cross - with YOUR sins - on His back. see Him hanging on a cross and dying so that YOU may have eternal life.
take the gift. see Jesus. don't look at the scarecrows in the field................... look at the Cross. only that.
you will never look back.......

Finnabair is coming!

 

 

 

soooooooo, you know how sometimes you get an idea and then it starts nagging at the back of your head and it does not leave you alone and before you know it you are praying about it, then obsessing about it and finally you just give it back to the Lord and put Him in charge and then at last things fall into place?  i have been so desperate to learn more and offer more in a creative way to the South African Scrapbooking community............. i am therefore soooooo happy to announce that Finnabair will be coming to teach at the Shop in Jeffreys Bay end of October.  there will be 2 sessions with 25 seats available in each session.  Finn was very clear that she likes small groups and that it is very important to her to be able to give each student individual attention............

bookings opened this morning and there are only a few seats left.  can't wait to meet her and see all of you at the Event.    xxxx

just click on the image below and you will be taken to the online booking site

i prefer to be a fool.........

chalkboard-black

 

when i was growing up, it was seemingly important that everyone thought i was a clever little girl.  i remember being praised because i did really well at school with very little effort.  later i started believing that i was very clever.

i loved debating - the more philosophical, the better.  oh, today i am so very ashamed of all the rubbish i spoke and i now know how utterly FOOLISH i was most of my life.........  i am so ashamed of all the "liberal" ideas i promoted............. 

you know, there is a HUGE difference between really LOVING all people and confusing "not judging" with keeping quiet  -  when you know people are on the road to literal hell..........

 i now choose to be called a fool ..........

 

1 Corinthians 1:18-31 (Amplified Bible)

18 For the story and message of the cross is sheer absurdity and folly to those who are perishing and on their way to perdition, but to us who are being saved it is the [manifestation of] the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will baffle and render useless and destroy the learning of the learned and the philosophy of the philosophers and the cleverness of the clever and the discernment of the discerning; I will frustrate and nullify [them] and bring [them] to nothing.

20 Where is the wise man (the philosopher)? Where is the scribe (the scholar)? Where is the investigator (the logician, the debater) of this present time and age? Has not God shown up the nonsense and the folly of this world’s wisdom?

21 For when the world with all its earthly wisdom failed to perceive and recognize and know God by means of its own philosophy, God in His wisdom was pleased through the foolishness of preaching [salvation, procured by Christ and to be had through Him], to save those who believed (who clung to and trusted in and relied on Him).
