He is Able

He is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:25

It only makes sense to quote a passage from Hebrews as the introduction to this week’s Christian Paper Crafts Wednesday Case Artist Traci S. Traci was raised Jewish, taught in the Jewish schools and at one point even wanted to be a Rabbi. The Lord had other plans, however; and opened Traci’s eyes to the see the glory of His Son and that indeed; Jesus is the promised seed, the Messiah, the son of David, the Deliver, and the Chosen One. And now her hope of heaven and the life to come rests solely in Him.

Though raised in a home where art abounded and an avid scrap booker for some 20 years, Traci has only been stamping about a year. She loves the color purple as it reflects royalty and majesty:  she is a daughter of the King, after all! She also loves butterflies as they symbolize the new creature, freed from the bondage of sin and raised to newness of life. Traci has a blog and has just celebrated her one year blog-a-versary, the name of her blog also corresponds to the Scripture: He is Able.

Traci and her husband have a blended family with four children and four grand-children. As part of her heritage, her dogs have all had Jewish holidays as part of their names because that is when they were rescued and came home to live with Traci.

Traci struggles with severe migraines that impair her vision and she has physical limitations as a result of debilitating injuries, nonetheless, she is joyful, enthusiastic and continues to craft cards to encourage others, serving the Lord with the gifts and talents He has given.

Or, as Traci says, “I have found my JOY in the Lord!  And, it fills me more than anything else could! Hallelujah!”
