Why Faithbook?

To Remember God

Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them. Remember the day you stood before the LORD your God at Horeb, when he said to me, "Assemble the people before me to hear my words so that they may learn to revere me as long as they live in the land and may teach them to their children. Dt. 4:9-10

The book of Deuteronomy is a reminder for us through the Israelites to remember who God is and what he has done. When they disobeyed God, they were punished. When they obeyed God, they prospered. It is important for us to remember God, remember his faithfulness, provision, blessings and love for us. Some events we may not want to remember, however that memory serves as a learning tool not to repeat or even as a reminder how God was there strengthening us all along.

The Bible in itself is all we need to learn about God and how to live our lives. But by scrapbooking our faith, God's provision and faithfulness we have a visual tool and record to pass down to our children. Although we are to live by the same commands, we have a new covenant through Jesus Christ. We can have a personal relationship with Him. Our scrapbooks are personal too. Share, record and remember who God is and what he has done for you.
