Challenge #89 - Anything Goes

It's Wednesday again, and time for another great challenge.  We really enjoyed the amazing cards and projects you all shared with us in our last challenge, and we're already looking forward to seeing what you will create  and share this week.  We all had a  lot of fun creating with this week's word art, and if you choose to use it, we hope that it will be a blessing to you as well.

This week's scripture, taken from the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 12 and verse 3, says "Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation."  How wonderful to know that God can quench our physical thirst with water, and that He can also quench our spiritual thirst by filling us with the water that comes from the wells of salvation (the powerful water that will quench our spiritual thirst forever and take care of our every need).  This can only come through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  We are never alone when we learn to "drink from His well" of strength and blessing.  If you have never experienced this "joy that comes through the wells of salvation", we encourage you to open God's Word this week and dig in to, and claim, all the promises He has given us for a blessed life.  There is GREAT JOY in depending on Jesus to quench your thirst - both physically and spiritually.

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".  They have been recently revised.

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

Thanks to the design team for some wonderful inspiration.

Hope my card is OKk...there is only one was chosen for a friend sho is suffering from depression and can not find her way out of it.

I am trying to encourage her to look for moments of joy in her daily life.By focusing on the matter how small, I feel it helps find your way so you can eventually soar again.

Thanks Karen for the great devotional/reminder here today. Remembering the meaning and depth of our salvation really can help to refocus greatly on all that we have and be grateful, but mostly to focus on Christ and Him alone. Thanks for the encouragement and challenge. Hugs.
