Anything Goes - Challenge #440-#441

Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday.  It's time for another FUN challenge.  We're so glad that you've chosen to join us, and we always enjoy seeing the amazing cards and art you share with us.  We wish everyone the best of luck in the random draw.  We have a new sponsor for this challenge - Art Glitter.  Be sure to check out all their fabulous glitters, glass beads, and other great products.  One AWESOME product carried at Art Glitter is their variety of Designer Dries Clear Adhesives.  These FAB adhesives come in different varieties (for paper crafting, fabric, etc.) and are super helpful in crafting.  They even carry Applicator Tips for applying adhesive in those smaller areas requiring fine detail.  We do hope you'll stop by and check out Art Glitter.

Our word art scripture is Jeremiah 33:3 which says, "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not".  When Jeremiah spoke these words, he was speaking to the people of Israel and Judah.  Much of his writings were a warning to the people of these kingdoms to help make them aware of the judgement to come, and to persuade them to repent of their sins and turn to God.  But in the midst of all of this, he took time to write these words of encouragement.  His words are a blessing to us even today.  We're facing troubling times as well.  Sometimes we think we have all the answers and we forget to ask God for the strength and wisdom we need.  These words that he spoke are so relevant to us now.  If we will simply call on God (speak His holy name and ask Him for help), His word says that He will answer us.  It also assures us that when we call on God, He will show us great and mighty things that we don't yet know.  Let's be honest....there's much that we can learn.  Rather than looking to our televisions, newspapers and computers for the answer we need; let's "call on God, let Him answer us, and let Him show us great and mighty things that WE DON'T KNOW".  This is when we will be blessed - when we look to God for ALL that we need.

As always, you are welcome to save the word art to your computer; but you are never required to use it in order to play along in our challenges or to win.   We welcome you to 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!

This is my favorite bible verse. My Sunday school teacher taught it to us. She said it was God's phone number. I'm so glad y'all made this for us to use. Thank you. [Bunny]
