Challenge #192 - Anything Goes/Family Friendly

We are BLESSED to have you here with us this week, and we want to THANK YOU for playing along with us.  We can't even begin to express how GRATEFUL we are for each of you who takes the time to link your beautiful art in our challenges, and we LOVE seeing each lovely creation you share with us.  We have another wonderful challenge this week with two AMAZING sponsors, so let's get started with the fun.

This week our focus verse is Isaiah 55:12, "For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace, the mountains and hills will break forth before you into singing and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands." This verse is looking forward to the Millennium. This is a 1000 year period when the Lord will be reigning on the Earth. We will be spending much of our time praising the Lord. In fact, the whole earth will be full of praise to the Lord. So much so that the mountains, hills and trees will burst forth with greenery in praise to Him. Verse 13 of the same chapter tells us that instead of thorns and thistles, trees will sprout and grow.  It will be a time of great peace.

So many people today are feeling hollow inside and are looking for peace. They will try many things and many religions while looking to fill that hollow space. However, that empty space inside can only be filled by the Prince of Peace.  Peace isn't found in things, or even in religion. It's only found in a personal relationship with the Lord. What about you?  Have you accepted Christ as your Savior and experienced the peace that only He can bring?  It's the most important decision you will ever make.       - Stephanie Wright

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 altered or digital art (not just limited to cards).  You may link up to five (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 our guidelines.  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!

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

Reading the beautifully styled scripture was such a blessing to me. It is a reminder of a dear message from God in answer to desperate prayer. The fact that I read it again today is just one more evidence of His goodness.
