Anything Goes - Weeks #376 - #377

Welcome by!   We're always SO grateful to have you stop by and share your art with us.  We believe that God has given each person very special gifts.  We use our God-given gifts to bless and encourage one another.  And let me tell you, we really enjoy seeing the beautiful creations you share with us, and we praise God for all the amazing talent we see each week.   We apologize that not everyone's blog gets a comment each week.  I'm still having trouble commenting on Splitcoast Stampers.  But please know that even if we miss leaving you a comment, we still peek at your cards and we thank you for taking the time to share them with us.  It means so much to us.   We have another great challenge all ready for you to enjoy, so let's get started.

PLEASE NOTE:  I'm looking for Guest Designers for this year.  If you are interested in being a Guest Designer here at Word Art Wednesday, please type the letters GD after your name in your entry.  Or, you can simply email me.

Our word art was created using the verse Ephesians 2:6 which says, "And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus".  What this essentially means is that once we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are "made alive" (v. 5) and in addition to that, we are "raised up with Him" meaning that, in the future, we will be seated along side Him (in heavenly places).   Not only does God give us wisdom, provision and security in this life, but He also promises us that we will be near Him in eternity.   That's AMAZING!   The one true God, creator and author of EVERYTHING, powerful, mighty, sovereign, omnipotent and eternal - He who sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty - has secured a place for us at His precious side.   You see, regardless of what the world might want to believe....there are only two places that every soul WILL spend eternity.  Those two choices are either: 1) Hell:  A dark, endless pit of fire with anguish, gnashing of teeth and eternal torment; or 2) Heaven - in the immediate presence of God, walking streets of gold, living in mansions, walking beside the waters, and seated by His precious side.   I leave you with this question.....where will you spend your eternity?   We WILL spend it somewhere.  The choice is ours to make.

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!
