Challenge #110 - Anything Goes

God is SO GOOD!  He has continued to POUR OUT BLESSINGS on our challenge blog.  He has provided the most wonderful, loyal, and generous sponsors for us that we could ever imagine.  He continues to bless our wonderful Design Team, and has also been blessing our faithful participants and sponsors.  When you are living right - He pours out blessings that you can't even contain.  The enemy tries to attack, but it does no good; for the Bible tells us that "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world."  We are blessed, and we give Him SO MUCH PRAISE!

This week's scripture is not just a "Christmas" verse.  It really sums up how we view the world.  First and foremost, we give ALL glory and praise to God in the highest.  We also wish (and pray) for peace on earth.  The Bible tells us to live at peace with all men.  We don't desire to be at odds with ANY ONE.  We don't judge anyone.  Only God can (and does) judge sin.  We are ALL SINNERS, and we ALL fall short of the glory of God.  But praise God, we can receive the gift of His amazing grace through what He did for us on the cross.  We wish for good will toward all men (people) and want more than anything for everyone to find God's blessings; both here on this earth as well as in eternity.  The Bible tells us very clearly that "A prudent man concealeth knowledge: (that's what we attempt to do with every week's post), but that the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness."  That's been very apparent.  Do we think we're perfect?  NO WAY!  Do we desire to conceal God's knowledge?  Absolutely!  We'd rather be proclaiming the truth than to be considered a fool.  Again, not our words - God's words!  Let His precious Word speak to you and bless you.  We hope that as you live the way God commands, He will bless each of you in the same manner He has blessed our challenge blog.  God is SO GOOD!

As 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 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. This includes any type of art (not just limited to cards).  You may link up to 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 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".  Because our ultimate goal is to honor God, we have no other choice but to delete any entries that do not adhere to these guidelines.  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!
