Hi and Welcome to GOD's Rustic Workshop Blog!

We are excited to be able to share from our heart about the business that GOD gave us! Jim and I moved to North Carolina about 7 years ago.  GOD blessed us by making available a piece of property on a mountain with a beautiful view of HIS creation.  We love to takes walks on the mountain and just observe the beauty of nature and how it displays GOD's splendor! It tells us in Romans 1:20, "For since the creation of the world GOD's invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made,..."  Here at GOD's Rustic Workshop we want to display that beauty in every item we design.  We look for wood that has a wonderful story to tell in it's knots and holes, twists and turns.  We see the beauty in it's bends and work with them to design creative and unique home decor.  As we work with the wood we are reminded that GOD too uses the knots, holes, twists, turns and bends of our life!  What we look at and see as a difficult time in our lives...a knot a hole, etc., GOD wants to turn into something beautiful! It says in Romans 8:28, "And we know that in all things GOD works for the good of those who love HIM,..."  We were created in GOD's image to display HIS splendor.  In fact, in Psalm 139:14 it says, "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Do you know that GOD fearfully and wonderfully made you? Do you know that HE loves you so much that HE sent HIS one and only SON to earth to die in your place? In John 3:16 it it tells us this, "For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS only begotten SON that whosoever believes in HIM shall not perish but have everlasting life." HE died so you wouldn't have to! If you want to know this Savior all you have to do is pray a simple prayer asking that HE be your Lord and Savior. You can say something like this, 

“Father, I know that my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”
It isn't any specific words that saved you it is the attitude of your heart to recognize what Jesus did on the cross for you.  If you prayed this prayer, please share it with us so we can be praying for you.  We want to talk to you about growing your relationship with your Creator and Savior and to let you know how GOD truly sees you now!

Love in Christ!
