Challenge #84 - Anything Goes

Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday for another great challenge!  We are so blessed that you're here, and we are grateful to have you play along in our challenges.  It means so much to us to have you fellowship and share your art with us.  Please feel free to share the news about our challenge blog with your friends, and invite others to stop by and share with us as well.

This week's word art/scripture is Proverbs 16:7 and it tells us that when our ways please the Lord, that even our enemies will be at peace with us.  Yes, we will still have enemies because of sin in the world.  There are people who will be jealous of us, find fault in us, and want to cause trouble for us.  But have you ever noticed that most of the drama, troubles or conflicts that arise in our lives occur when we are not pleasing the Lord with our actions?  It's true!  When we confess our sins to God and get really honest with ourselves about our faults, God is there to cause even our enemies to be at peace with us.  This isn't always a popular subject, and we don't want to "step on any toes" here or "point any fingers", but let's just be honest with ourselves.  If you're the kind of person who has a lot of "drama" or conflict in your life, just be willing to take a really good look at yourself and ask yourself if there is anything you can confess to God and get right with him so that He can cause your enemies to be at peace with you, and God WILL resolve that conflict in your life and give you the "peace that passeth all understanding".  This is how God wants us to live our lives, and after all - when we're honest, we all want to have peace (even with our enemies).  We hope this passage will be a blessing to you this week.

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. You can also link more than one project each week (up to 5 each week). The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning. We just  want God's Word to 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".
