Challenge #85 - Sponsored by Crafty Secrets

Welcome back, friends!  We hope that you've had a great week, and we're SO glad to have you join us for another awesome challenge.  This week's word art/scripture file was designed by our former Design Team Member, Diane Noble.  If you'd like to see some of the lovely images Diane has been creating and has for sale, you can visit her brand new blog Diane's Daydream Designs and follow the links.  We praise God for restoring her to full health, and we wish her the best in her new endeavors.  If you would prefer to have the colored version of this scripture file, please let us know and we can email it to you.
 
This verse, Philippians 4:6-7, is a wonderful piece of scripture.  It tells us that we should be careful (worried about) absolutely nothing. But that in everything, through prayer (asking) and supplication (reverent and humble communication), and with much thanks, we are to make our requests known to God.  How awesome is that?  What a blessing it is to know that the awesome God of this universe would care enough about us to hear our humble prayers, and care about the things that matter to us.  God does NOT want us to worry.  We're not supposed to spend our time and energy being stressed out.  God has told us that we are to give all that worry  and anxiety to Him through prayer.  And, not only does God HEAR our prayers, praises and requests, and care about them; but He (and He alone) can answer them, and take away our worries!  According to His will, and in His perfect timing, He will answer all our prayers in the way that is best for us.  We are TOO BLESSED to be stressed!
 
You are welcome to save this week's free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are not required to use it in order to play along in our challenges.   We welcome you share your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. You can also link more than one project each week (up to 5 each week). The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning. We just  want God's Word to be a blessing and encouragement to you each week. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "Challenge Rules".  They have been recently revised.  Also, please note that you do not need to have a blog in order to play along with us.  We are pleased to have our friends at Splitcoast Stampers, Flikr and other galleries play along with us!  You're all welcome to share, and eligible to win.

Here is this week's free scripture/word art. We hope you enjoy it!

I love this verse, but I couldn't figure out how to grab a good copy from your site so I recreated it as closely as I could. I hope that is okay.
