πρωτεύω (prōteuō)

                                                      preeminence chart

 I have listed this chart in the etsy shop, and am writing this so that the verses used can be read by all – how wonderful God’s Word is :)

                       (“Preeminence” in Greek letters/πρωτεύω (prōteuō) )

                                                          πρωτεύω

Giving thanks unto the Father…who hath delivered
us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us
into the kingdom of his dear Son:
In whom we have redemption through his blood,
even the forgiveness of sins:
Who is the image of the invisible God,
the firstborn of every creature:
For by him were all things created,
that are in heaven, and that are in earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones, or
dominions, or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by him, and for him:
And, he is before all things, and by him all things consist
And he is the head of the body, the church:
who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead;
that in all things he might have
the preeminence.
colossians 1:12-18

context

here is the second part of the Scripture and the quilt block for CQJP2013…………..

here is the whole………

to look at parts of the block, is not to see the whole block;  even more so, to read one quote from the Bible, is not to see the context, or chapter…
so keep reading on in this chapter from Mark 9:14-29 to see the context.
the same incident is described in Matthew 17:14-21…….

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things [are] possible to him that believeth. And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us.
And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

He lives

first block

I have begun the challenge of making a crazy quilt block each month for this year, 2013.  I have never made a crazy quilt block before, and did not even know what a crazy quilt was…

so I did a bit of research, and then jumped in

No – there is nothing special about me that I am able to participate; I jumped on the opportunity to register, and lo and behold here I am!

Having fought the urge to redo the entire block, I have posted this up and can move on to the next block. This first block does not really look like a crazy quilt block (from what I can tell from looking at other CQ blocks) but I am learning.  Everyone starts somewhere, right?! :D  might as well start right where you are –

Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. 
  john 6:29

who hears your voice?

Blessed be the Lord, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.


The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth: and with my song will I praise him…… Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance:  feed them also, and lift them up forever. psalm 28:6-9

God is so faithful – no matter what – and though times are bad, He is always good – cry out to Him! He is eager to hear, loves to show mercy, and ready to save ~
