Challenge #274-275 - Anything Goes

Welcome back by today, everyone!  It's time for another fun challenge here at Word Art Wednesday, and our primary sponsor, Simon Says Stamp, is back to offer another lucky participant a $25 gift certificate to their amazing on-line crafting store.  We have so many exciting things to share with you all, so let's get started.

This beautiful verse, Revelation 21:4, gives us a glimpse into the new Jerusalem where God will wipe away ALL tears from our eyes (regardless of why our tears appear), and where there is no more death, sorrow or crying.  So, not only will God personally wipe away our tears, but He will ensure that no more tears come to our eyes (for any reason whatsoever).  It also tells us that it will be a place where there is absolutely NO PAIN of any kind, and that ALL former things are passed away (sin, pain, sadness, etc.).  The place that God has prepared for us is wonderful, and just this small glimpse of what it will be is enough to get any saved person excited.  If you don't know FOR SURE that YOU will spend eternity in Heaven with God, we encourage you to settle it today.  It's not, as some people think, "arrogant" to say that you know FOR SURE you're going to Heaven.  It's something God wants us to know, with great certainty.  It's not because of us or anything we have done or possibly could do on our own because we are sinful.  It's because of Him, and what He did on the cross by giving Himself as the perfect and only worthy sacrifice for our sins.  Just call on Him today, ask Him to be your Lord, confess your sinfulness, ask Him into your life, and....that's it!  He died FOR YOU (and for me), and He wants us all to KNOW that this wonderful eternal life in Heaven with Him FOREVER is waiting for YOU, and for ME, and for sinners just like US!

As always, you are welcome to save the 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 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. 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!
