1. Help spread Godís love and bring Godís glory in everything we do.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
-- John 3:16
2. Remind everyone to have faith in God and to trust God by handing over your burdens in prayer and ultimately handing over your life to God.
"So I say to you, Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; Knock and the door will be opened."
-- Luke 11:9
3. Help others grow in their faith through fellowship and mutual support within the Christian community.
"Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood."
-- Acts 20:28
4. Provide a path, through Faithware for personal involvement and encouragement to those who are struggling and to remind them of the faith community surrounding them.
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
-- James 1:27
Faithware is a privately owned, faith-centered, for profit business. Faithware started in 2005 when, in the midst of many challenges, we were gifted this phrase. ďHand It OverĒ. It is a simple phrase but those three little words of faith can be life changing.
To have faith in God is to trust God and to have confidence in God. Our lives, our futures, and our plans are in God's hands. "HIO" reminds us to put our full and complete hope and trust in the lord. Faithware is a visible reminder of our hope.
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.-- Hebrews 11:1
We believe prayer is one of the greatest blessings given to us. It allows us to talk to our Father anytime and anywhere, to hand over our all our burdens, to remove our anxiety and replace it with hope, faith and thanksgiving.
"Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die."-- John 11:25-26
We put "HIO" on our bracelets to remind us in an instant that the Lord is as close as a prayer. We do not believe there is "power" in our bracelets, but our bracelets remind us of the power that is available to us. I once read that "our meetings with each other, and our ministry to each other, are not chance happenings. They are acts of God's grace that give us a chance to share in God's blessing." We believe this and after presenting gifts of these bracelets to our friends, we decided to start Faithware and to make our bracelets available to all who might need to be reminded to "Hand It Over".
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.-- Philippians 4:6-7
