Anything Goes - Challenge #310 - #311

Welcome by today, everyone.  We have another really fun challenge for you all, we have some awesome prizes to talk about, a beautiful piece of word art, and some lovely inspiration from the Design Team.  Let's get started by looking at the beautiful scripture that gives us our new piece of word art.

The scripture for our word art is Colossians 3:17 which says, "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him".  This encouraging verse reminds us that EVERYTHING we do should be done to the glory of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  You see, if we're living our lives so that everything we do brings Him glory, then we are living out His perfect will and doing that which makes us a reflection of His image.  Let's all keep in mind that our actions, choices, and lifestyle should all be carried out in a way that will bring glory to God.  When we keep this in the forefront of our minds as we go about our daily lives, we are far more likely to live the way He would want us to live, and we are seeking to manifest His behaviors in our own.  This honors Him and allows us to thank Him through every action of our lives for ALL that He has done for us.
As always, you are welcome to save the free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are never 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!
Here is this week's word art.  We hope
that it will be a blessing to you.
