Challenge #143 - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by again this week to play along in our challenge.  Each week, we are SO delighted to see the amazing cards and projects you create and share.  We enjoy visiting your blogs, sharing in your lives, and having you link up with us.  We consider you ALL winners, and we thank each of you for sharing with us.  We have another great challenge planned for you.

This week's word art/scripture is a treasured verse from the Old Testament.  The Book of Isaiah is filled with rich promises, and stories of God's faithfulness to His people, and its truths span the ages.  They are as rich, as real, and every bit as meaningful today as they were when they were written.  This beautiful scripture, Isaiah 25:1 says, "O LORD, I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth."  It is our greatest desire that each of you has this kind of relationship with the LORD (Jehovah God in the OT, Jesus Christ in the New Testament) and that your heart is filled with this same magnificent praise.  We can exalt His holy name the same today as it was in Bible times.  "The counsels of old are faithfulness and truth", and how WONDERFUL that they are still the counsels today.  He wants SO MUCH to pour out His blessings on you.  As we draw closer to Him, He is faithful to show us the joy of these truths.  We call His name holy, He is OUR GOD, and we hope He is your God, too.  Exalt Him, praise His holy and beautiful name; for He really HAS done wonderful things, and continues to do wonderful things as we submit to Him and seek Him.  What a blessing to know that time will NEVER change the truths of God's Word, nor will time ever change His love for us, His counsels, or the blessings He wants for us to simply accept and to experience on a personal level.  We encourage you to call on Him today, and we hope that you will really experience His goodness in its fullness.  Praise God that He, and His Word, will NEVER EVER change.
 
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!
