Anything Goes - Weeks #354 - #355

Hello everyone and welcome back.  It's time for another fun challenge and we're so glad you're here to play along.  I've been busy this week working on our sponsors for 2019, and let me tell you.....GOD IS SO GOOD!!!!   I have the sponsor calendar about half full right now, and y'all are going to be AMAZED with all the fabulous companies that will be joining us next year so, stay tuned!

Our word art was created using the verse Psalm 94:22 which says, "But the LORD is my defense; and my God is the rock of my refuge".  We all go through trials in our lives.  But what a blessing to know that we never go through them alone.  The LORD is our defense.  WOW, that says a lot.  He is a mighty adversary, and when we place our trust in Him to hold us up and defend us during difficult times; He will always prove Himself to be a mighty fortress.  We can hide our sorrows, burdens and cares in Him because He is a rock - a strong source of strength when we are weak.  And we aren't ever "bothering Him" by asking for that strength we need.  In fact, quite the opposite.  He actually WANTS us to ask Him to protect us and support us.  While it's good to be strong and confident, it's even better to be honest as nothing is hidden from Him.  We need only to open up and tell Him that we need Him and He is always there to defend us.  We are so very blessed to have this constant source of refuge and strength.  Praise God.....we're never, ever alone.

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, for a total of ten (10) entries per two-week challenge. 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.
