Challenge Weeks #270-271 - Anything Goes

Welcome by for a brand new challenge today here at Word Art Wednesday.  We have three lucky winners, an AWESOME sponsor, a new freebie word art scripture file, and lots of fun planned for everyone.  Let's get started with the fun.

This week's scripture/word art is from Jeremiah 32:17 and says, "Ah Lord God!  behold thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee".  What a blessing to know that there is absolutely NO situation or problem too difficult for God.  Because He is the fountain of all being, power and life, no situation with Him is too difficult to overcome.  He is a God of boundless mercy and of strict justice, and He directs everything for the best.  Jeremiah also acknowledges here that God was righteous in causing evil to come upon them.  Like Jeremiah, we have to realize that all situations or conflicts, whether public or private, are ALL seen by God Almighty.  We can take great comfort in knowing that because our awesome God is involved, no matter what the situation; He sees what's happening and knows exactly how to remedy (fix) it.  We also need to learn that we should never argue with God regarding the results and outcomes of circumstances....but rather, to TRUST Him that He has a greater purpose and plan, and seek to know, accept and understand His will more perfectly in our journey as we grow ever closer to our Savior and become more like Him.

As always, you are welcome to save the 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 all 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 as we share it. 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.  Please know that this doesn't mean we are judging anyone.  We're simply attempting to honor God and follow His rules.  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!

that it will be a blessing to you.
