Anything Goes - #386-#387

Welcome by the Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog and thanks for joining us!  It's time for a fun new challenge and we're so glad that you've chosen to link up with us.  We have a FUN new sponsor for this challenge, a lucky winner, some awesome inspiration, the free scripture file, and a brief devotional.  Let's get started right away with the new challenge.

Our word art uses the scripture Isaiah 54:13 which says, "And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children".  This beautiful verse is an encouragement and reminder to us, as adults, the importance of teaching our children (not just our biological children, but all the children God places in our path) of God's principles, His ways, His commandments, His holy and precious Word, and the unspeakable joy that's found ONLY in a life of service to Him.   This is one of those verses that comes with a promise.  It says "thy children shall be taught of the LORD" and goes on to say that "great shall be the peace of thy children".  So we are assured that when we raise up our children to love and fear the LORD, Jesus Christ, and to live for Him; that they will have great peace in their lives.  What a beautiful promise from God.  It doesn't say that life won't have difficulties for our children, but they will have peace.  That sure is an encouragement to me, and I hope it's an encouragement to you.

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 the 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!
