big holiday giveaway to Holly Lane Designs {3 $50 gift cards!!}

I've got a super fun holiday surprise for you!! :D Remember Holly Lane Designs? They make beautiful jewelry that is meaningful and centered on the Bible {and meant to spark conversations about the Gospel! ahhh!} I love their purpose, and I enjoy wearing something that reminds me of the Lord when I see it, like this Birds of the Air ring I still wear often!

They kindly sent me this anchor necklace to review, and I love it too. :) Like all their jewelry, this one came with a verse card- Hebrews 6:18-20: 

I chose this anchor pendant because 2014 has been a hard year for me. Many, many times I felt like I was sinking. I wish I could say I felt instant comfort in the rough times, but I didn't. I knew that the Lord didn't abandon me, but I definitely had times of deep despair.

Like other hard times, the Lord didn't let me go away- I held on to the promise that the Lord will never leave me or forsake me- that no matter what trials I'm facing- He will not abandon me. Nothing takes Him by surprise. He knew this year would be hard for me. He knew my flesh would fail me. He knew I would feel so tired- so worn.

But still He carried me. Though I wavered and tossed, He never moved. When I was at the lowest, He brought me good news, and it was incredibly comforting to know He really saw me there.  

In my naivety, I imagined walking with the Lord would always get easier just because I wanted it, but after this year, I'm not sure that's the case. It seems like growing closer to the Lord is more like a battle- some years are great mountaintop-high sorts of victories, and some years you're in the deep valley, fighting to stay alive. 

No matter where it is we are in our walk though- we know we have a sure and steadfast hope in Jesus Christ- our High Priest who KNOWS what it's like to walk this earth! He felt sorrow; He was acquainted with grief and knew exhaustion.

He came and lived, died, and rose again so that I might be His.

And no matter what may come, nothing can separate me from the love of Christ.

Not tribulation, not death, not persecution. Not even a hard season. Not a single thing can take me away from Him.

As strange as it sounds, you know what I've learned from this difficult year? I've learned to love my anchor even more because I've felt the high, hard waves crash against me and toss me about.

He is steady. He is sure. He doesn't waver.

I love Him. And the necklace they gave me is a precious reminder that no matter how hard it gets, He loves me. He is my hope, and this hope is the anchor for my soul.

I'm so thankful that this weekend I get the chance to share a sweet gift from Holly Lane Designs with you! Their company has so generously offered to give away 3 {THREE!} $50 gift cards!! yay!!

If I won, I would choose this anchor necklace: ;)

here's the scoop from Holly Lane Designs themselves:

We create sterling silver verse based Christian jewelry made to spark conversations about Christ. Every piece is hand assembled, made in the USA and paired with a Story Card™,  a small printed note that shares the sentiment or verse which inspired the piece. It is our hope and prayer our jewelry will encourage you to memorize God’s word, remember His promises and share it with others.

who’s Holly?

Holly Lane is the name of the street where Holly Lane Designs was founded. In 2003, Tiffany Scott, owner and Christian jewelry artist, began praying specifically that God would show her how to use her talents for His glory. Tiffany became a believer in Christ after many people lovingly shared the gospel with her time and time again. This experience is what directed her vision for Holly Lane Designs.

With her vision in place, Tiffany began creating her first pieces of jewelry from her home on Holly Lane. At the time, Tiffany was a stay at home mom with three young children and a newborn.

Through years of hard work and prayer, Holly Lane Designs has grown into a thriving business, now celebrating it’s 11th year.

Nowadays, Tiffany can be found home schooling her five children, running Holly Lane Designs, creating jewelry and traveling to craft shows and events sharing her story.
