Challenge #69 - Anything Goes

Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday!  It's time for another great Anything Goes Challenge this week.   And.... just wait until you see the amazing prizes we have waiting for ELEVEN (11) lucky entrants this week.

This week's word art file/scripture is Psalm 73:26 and it reminds us that our flesh (our physical human bodies) and our hearts WILL most certainly fail us.  Our bodies were not created to last forever.  We have issues with our health, and our bodies just have that tendency to "break down" and "fail us".  And the Bible also tells us in Jeremiah 17:9 that our hearts are "deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked".  There's just no way to avoid it... our bodies (flesh) and hearts are GOING TO FAIL.  But what a joy and encouragement to know that there is a way to strengthen our hearts and our bodies; and that is through Jesus Christ (God in human flesh) who lives inside our hearts (when we invite Him to do so), and through His infinite power, He strengthens our hearts and keeps us perfectly where He needs us to be, when we trust Him to do so.  And even better yet, God will continue to restore us forever.  When we place our hearts in His tender care, He promises to provide for us here on earth, as well as in His eternal Kingdom.   We don't need to fear growing old, or having a broken heart.  He is going to be there for us 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 the challenge. We simply hope to have you share your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-freindly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. You can also link more than one project each week (up to 5). The more, the merrier. We just hope 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".

Here is this week's free scripture/word art. We hope you enjoy it!

Hullo Karen thank you so very much for popping over and saying hi..

...actually I thought that link overs had to have the Word of God on them but notice lots do not.. so am guessing it is okay so will try and link over more often..

I am touched you were sent by LORD to ask how I was... have really struggled for last number of months with various ailments last being day dental surgery which am nearly recovered from and cataract surgery coming up next month will be glad of a medical interlude.. sometime soon after that I hope!

..but God sends us what we need, when we need it, does he not?

I am meaning to showcase more calligraphy - illuminated texts this year and only done one so far...

.. so will try and do one in next day or so and link over to you :D thanks dear sister in the LORD, may our sweet Saviour bless your day today, Shaz in Oz.x
