Challenge #30, A Winner & Some VERY Exciting News!!

God has been blessing our little Challenge Blog here at Word Art Wednesday, and we are SO grateful to Him for all the wonderful things that are happening here.  We've had some wonderful regular sponsors right from the beginning, and we have also picked up a few new sponsors.  We trust that all the sponsors we have lined up are direct blessings from God, and we also trust that when God shuts the door with a particular sponsor, it is HIS perfect will, and we wouldn't want it any other way.  We know that God only gives us His best, and we are very grateful to our gracious sponsors, but the praise all goes to God for all that we have.  With that said, we want to announce some VERY exciting news about our upcoming challenges starting NEXT WEEK!!

Starting next week, the first challenge of each month will offer TWO prizes.  That's right, crafters!!  Two participants will have the opportunity to win a prize from our awesome sponsors.  We will have our regular sponsor, PLUS a secondary sponsor for the first challenge of each month starting in June and running through the end of 2012.   And wait until you see the awesome sponsors God has given us.  They are THE BEST!

This week's free word art/scripture is Matthew 5:16 which is a beautiful verse that speaks of how we are to live our lives.  We need to let our lights shine before men so that people/the world will see a difference in us - something desirable about our lives that would bring glory to God.  If you aren't letting your light shine for Him, pray about how He could change little things in your life that could allow His love to shine through you to bring Him glory.  I want you all to know that the art you share each week in our challenges really shines for Him and glorifies Him.  They are also a blessing to us, so THANK YOU for sharing.  We appreciate your participation SO very much!

As always, feel free to save the free word art to your computer. You are welcome to use it in your entry, but not required to do so. As long as you use an encouraging or uplifting sentiment on your project, that is fine. We just hope that God's Word will be a blessing to you each week.
For another fun Christian Challenge, stop by and say hello to Abby at Abby's Scripture Thursday Challenge, she would be delighted to have you. Abby offers free clip art, a give-away each week, and words of encouragement on her blog. She would also love to have you share your scripture projects with her.

Hi Karen did not have time to link over the other night when did my post - really tired but have just done so and put your binkie on my sidebar - wanted to say also thanks for your very encouraging comment on my post - you made my day as believed the LORD wanted me to write it but is such a hard subject, and was very conscious of this, feeling rather inadequate.. In His name, Shaz in Oz.x
