The Silver Lining I Love Easter Giveaway!

I love Easter! I love giving presents! The Silver Lining is giving away a brand new copy of my favorite devotional: Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young, bound in turquoise imitation leather (my favorite color)!  Also included, is an itty bitty leatherette journal necklace (made by me; well… not the journal itself, but I put it on the chain, and I think it’s cool)! You can actually  write on the miniature pages inside: bible verses, memories, story ideas, poems, and more!

I’m grateful for the many men who are also following The Silver Lining, which is a blog for everyone who is looking for the good God has to offer during the hard times in life. An alternate prize option is also provided to either men, or women, who win this giveaway. It is a copy of The Duck Commander Devotional, by Al RobertsonYou can just let me know your preference when the winner is announced! 

Why a giveaway? Because I really, really love and appreciate my readers… and I really, really do pray for every one of you! My family comes together and asks God to choose the winner of each giveaway. It’s such a blessing to give a gift to a reader of The Silver Lining!

“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7).

To qualify: You must be a follower of The Silver Lining Facebook page.* Find it on Facebook, and easily join by clicking: ‘like’ and ‘follow.’ I want to share God’s Good News with you!

 “For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” 

 1 Thes. 5:9-11 ESV
 

The Silver Lining: Join us for encouragement, giveaway, and fun!

I will soon be hosting the “The Silver Lining Spring Giveaway!” Also coming up are some fun things to brighten your day, along with another psalm accompanied by gorgeous butterfly photographs taken by a dear friend. Some of my future blog posts will focus on how people can heal and be set free from narcissistic abuse. Narcissism is a sin. It’s a fancy word for extreme selfishness rooted in bitterness and unforgiveness. It is self-centeredness at its worst, the prime focus being oneself. It’s the opposite of everything Jesus has called us to be: sacrificial in picking up our crosses to follow him, rather than following ourselves, or even other people or causes. This sacrifice we offer, can only lead to goodness and salvation for our souls. 

In addition, I will give insight on how we can leave painful, damaging, toxic relationships behind, while forgiving those who have hurt us, and entrusting them to the one and only God who can change their hearts.

I believe God is leading me to minister on these topics to reach even more hurting people who need to understand that Jesus is THE answer for life change. Sometimes we know it’s all about Jesus, but we don’t know how to tap into the power and authority we have in Christ. I’m looking forward to sharing with you what God has taught me. Please invite others to join The Silver Lining, so they can receive the spiritual encouragement that we all need to get through each week. 

You can subscribe to The Silver Lining on my homepage at angelaslittleattic.com or find me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/angelaslittleattic. I invite you to leave comments, share posts, and invite your friends and family to join us, especially those going through their own storms in life, who could benefit from a reminder to always look for the silver lining. The silver lining is always there, because clouds are only a temporary cover for an ever-present, shining sun! God’s son, Jesus is the same. We can call on his name when we need him: 

God is our refuge and our strength, an  ever-present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1 New International Version).

The Silver Lining Valentine’s Day Giveaway!

Social Media Facebook Entry

*Plus an additional surprise, practically identical,  Valentine’s Day Giveaway coming very soon only for my subscribers, because I appreciate you! Details below…

Dear Readers, and Future Readers of The Silver Lining,

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays! You don’t have to be part of a couple to celebrate, in order to show someone that he or she is loved and special!

I love to give gifts. A simple gift of chocolates, flowers, or a stuffed animal can make someone’s day! What better time to bless a child, a friend, a spouse, a friend, or a co-worker?

I want to give a special gift to “The Silver Lining” reader who needs it most. I’ve already prayed for all of my readers, and I’ve asked God to choose the reader He feels needs a special gift this Valentine’s Day.

I write “The Silver Lining” to encourage my readers and let them know they can find hope in Christ Jesus, which leads to healing and freedom. Ultimately, I pray that God will continue to give me the words to help many people find Jesus. I pray everyone will know joy and truth in knowing that Jesus Christ is our salvation, and therefore the only way to eternal life.

Jesus died for our sins. He took the punishment for all the wrong things we do, so that we could live with him in Heaven forever. Now THAT is TRUE LOVE! All we have to do is take a step of Faith and ask Jesus to forgive our sins, and live within our hearts.
