Challenge #306 - #307 - Anything Goes

Welcome by!  We are SO glad you're here, and we hope that you will join us for another fun challenge.  We have two awesome sponsors, a beautiful piece of word art, and lots of great inspiration waiting for you.

Our word art for this challenge is 1 Timothy 1:12 and it was written by Paul.  He was thanking His precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for enabling him (equipping him) and counting him faithful (seeing his potential to serve Him with his whole life) to be a part of the ministry and to share the Gospel with the world.  We are blessed, in this day and age, to have those in our lives who, much like Paul, are enabled and found faithful by Jesus Christ to serve in the ministry.  I encourage you to print out this verse, make a card with it, and send it to someone who is either in the ministry, or someone who has made a difference for Christ in your life.  It's a great verse to use as an encouragement for those who offer their lives for the service and glory of God.  Don't forget that YOU are also called to live your life for the Lord Jesus Christ, and never underestimate your impact on those around you.  Live each day for Him, and thank Him for equipping you to do what you are called to do.  His grace is ALWAYS sufficient.

As always, you are welcome to save the free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are never 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.
