Blog Hop Fun

We are celebrating that God has blessed My Paper Treehouse with an awesome design team.  Please hop along with us and visit each of the DT members. If you get lost or just found the hop start here.  Each of the DT members have a wonderful story to share with you about what God has done and is doing in their lives... these are God's fingerprints.  Not only do we have a ton to share with you but there are RAKs along the way, a Great Blog Hop Challenge with a prize and a wonderful Grand Prize from Artful Delight.

Here is my God story:

I came to know the Lord at the age of 19 after a very long depression.  I had come to the end of my rope and figured it would be better for the world and I that I did not exist.  I had decided then to attempt to commit suicide and the Lord intervened in such a marvelous way that even the depression was removed from my life.  Since then I have tried to live solely for Him, and I must admit that the closer I get to Him the more I see how much of a failure I am apart from Him.
Recently the Lord has really been teaching me about the importance of living boldly before Him and an unbelieving world.  I have chosen to step out in faith and trust that living fully for Him is the right way to do things.  I have let go of anything that does not help me accomplish this and have seen the Hand of the Lord perform miracles I never imagined.. I can't wait to see what He will be doing through me as He works with me..

Here is the line up:
1. My Paper Tree House Blog
2. Maritha Frolid
3. Jeannie DeGruccucio
4. Wendy Morris
5. Ruth Tacoma
6. Nicole Brenna
7. Elizabeth Carney
