Falling for Jesus Writing Contest

Contest closed! Thank you all so much for your entries. We look forward to reading through them and informing you all of the winner. As of now #44 is the last participant. We'll post the winner soon!


Do you remember the first time you truly felt your heart flutter for our savior? Do you remember how excited you became and how amazed you were when you began to see how his fingerprints encompassed every mo
ment of your life? Was there a particular time during your walk with Him that you felt His love and presence more than you ever had before?

We would love to hear about it.

Internet Cafe Devotions is sponsoring a contest for Fall, Falling for Jesus that is, and the winner will receive a $50 gift card to Amazon.com and have their piece published here on Internet Cafe Devotions.

How to enter:

  • Write about your most treasured God experience following the guidelines listed below.
  • Post your writing on your blog.
  • Post the Falling for Jesus button on your blog either in the sidebar (preferred) or with the post.
  • Link directly to your contest post here using Mr. Linky.
  • Make sure that you leave your email address in the comments section so that we can get in touch with you if you win.
Guidelines:

  • writing should be uplifting and void of condemnation.
  • writing should reflect a Biblical perspective.
  • writing should contain at least one Bible verse (along with its reference and the translation it was taken from.)
  • It should be 400-700 words in length, and should be well proofed for errors before submission.
  • Authors must own the rights to any works that are submitted.
We are looking for writing that shares the God moments in day-to-day life; the honest transparency that brings you closer to the heart of Jesus; and words that guide readers into Biblical truth.

Details:
  • All entries must be received before October 26, 2008 at midnight.
  • The judges will be Amy Bayliss, Lori MacMath, Darlene Schacht, and a few of Internet Cafe Devotion's other regular contributors.

Yikes! 400-700 words...that was tough. My first "rough" draft was 973 words and I didn't even have my scripture references yet. Yikes!! Thanks for giving me this challenge. I had to go back and let the Holy Spirit guide me and teach me how to say more with less...as it turned out...He had more He wanted to say than He wanted me to say.

Thanks this was fun!!

When I saw the theme of this contest, I though how could I not enter?
You see, I literally did fall in love with Jesus long before I met my hubby. That experience literally has been my oasis in wilderness periods since then. I also do not have to demand of my hubby what only Christ was meant to give: perfection.
Thanks for this opportunity to force me to look back and marvel.
