Anything Goes - Weeks #464-#465

Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday, and THANK YOU for stopping by.  We hope that you will enjoy our fellowship, get a bit of inspiration, that you'll be encouraged by our words, and have LOTS of fun playing along in our FUN challenges.  We are so blessed to have the best sponsors a challenge blog could ever ask for; and we praise God for ALL that He has done here.  We're super glad you've chosen to join us, and we're grateful for the art you share.  Let's get started.

Our word art/scripture for this challenge is found in the Old Testament in Exodus 15:13 and says, "Thou in the mercy has led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength in thy holy habitation".  Have you ever felt like you were lost in the wilderness?  Or, perhaps actually ever been lost?  It's not a good feeling; and the first thing we desire is safety.  Well, just like in the Old Testament when God led His people to safety, He continues to do the same for us today.  Many people today, even perhaps some of us, are still lost....wandering about - wondering what to do, where to find rest and hope, and how to cope with all that is happening in our lives.  Here's the GOOD NEWS, everyone.  There is NONE OTHER THAN JESUS to help us find our way.  We can't look to our spouse, not our pastor, not our president, no one can save us from our lost condition other than Jesus.  All the other people in our lives are important and precious; but none compares to JESUS.  When we look to Him for what we need, we will NEVER be lost again.  If you're feeling discouraged today, may I suggest that you simply call on JESUS and ask HIM to save you from your lost condition.  He longs to hear from you.  He wants to work in your life and bless your days - both here on earth and for all eternity with Him in Heaven.  JESUS is ALL YOU NEED.  Call on Him today (whether you already have or not).  Call out His name...."JESUS, SAVE ME".  He will do great things in your life, and He will give you the rest and the hope you need.  He is waiting for you today, and He is ALL you 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.
