Challenge #139 - Anything Goes

Welcome back for another new challenge with us here at Word Art Wednesday.  It's July already, and we have another FABULOUS Guest Designer with us.  We hope you will stop by and introduce yourself to Joann Burton, and let her know how blessed you are to have her with us here this month.  We're SO grateful to have each of YOU with us, as well.  We have an AWESOME month planned!

Our beautiful word art for this week was provided to us from Diane Noble of Daydream Designs.  This beautiful scripture says (in part) "Be still, and know that I am God."  It goes on to say, "I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth."  There is coming a time when mankind will deny Christ (some already have), and despite how incredibly sad this is, it happens every day nonetheless.  More and more "Christians" are denying Christ for the sake of persecution and in fear of punishment or shame.  But despite what happens on this earth - whether past, present, or future - despite anyone who chooses to deny Christ and His omnipotent, perfect, endless reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords......it doesn't matter.  He tells us that He WILL be exalted among the heathens, and that He WILL be exalted in the earth."  People can choose to deny Jesus Christ all they want; but the truth remains that HE WILL be exalted as the Most High when He returns to this earth.  We PRAISE GOD for this absolute truth that CANNOT be changed.  If we will simply BE STILL, we can KNOW that HE IS GOD.  The rest of the world can deny Him all they want, but nothing will ever change the fact that He IS the One TRUE Messiah, and that He WILL come again, and reign as the Most High FOREVER.  The world can fall down all around us; but as Christians, we can be still and KNOW that nothing (and no one) can EVER separate us from the love of Christ.  All we need to do is remain faithful, be still, and KNOW that He alone IS GOD!

As always, 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. This includes any type of art (not just limited to cards).  You may link up to 5 projects each week. The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning.  It is our desire that God's Word will 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".  Because our ultimate goal is to honor God, we have no other choice but to delete any entries that do not adhere to these guidelines (dark images, etc.).  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!

Here's this week's beautiful scripture/word art file.
We hope that it will be a blessing to you!
