Anything Goes - #352-#353

Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday, everyone!  It's time for another fabulous challenge, and we're SO glad you are here to join the fun.  We have two new Design Team Members, two talented Guest Designers, and a wonderful sponsor for this fun new challenge.  And.....we know you will LOVE the prize they are offering.  More about that in just a moment.  For now, let's look at the scripture used in our new piece of word art for this challenge.

The scripture used to create this beautiful new piece of word art is 1 Corinthians 16:13 and it says, "Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong".  This is a very simple straight-forward verse reminding us first to "watch".  Watch against evil, watch for opportunities to do good, and watch over one another in love.  Stand fast in the faith.  Stand firmly in what you know to be true (where you have placed your salvation).  Be brave, confident in knowing what Christ has done for you on the cross is enough; and that by accepting it in fatih, you are sealed.  And finally, be strong.  Put forth all the energy and efforts God has given you for the purpose of glorifying Him and drawing others to Him.  By living the life He has called us to live, we are able to bless others along the way.  Not only will we be strengthened in our own walk with Him, and enjoy living the blessed life.....but additionally, we become better prepared to share God's love with the lost world and have a better chance of helping others find their way to Him for salvation.  What a great verse to remind us just how powerful our faith really is!

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, for a total of ten (10) entries per two-week challenge. 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!

that it will be a blessing to you.
