Anything Goes - Weeks#493-494

Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday, and thanks again for joining us.  We hope you're ready for yet another AWESOME challenge with another AWESOME sponsor.  For this challenge, our friends at Pink & Main are joining us and offering a FABULOUS prize to their amazing store filled with sweet stamps, dies, papers and more.  We always hope and pray that you will be blessed and encouraged by our challenges; and that you will grow closer to the Lord, Jesus Christ as you create and share your art with us.  We want perfect peace and happiness for ALL our crafty friends...and for all the world.

The beautiful word art we're enjoying for this challenge is Psalm 138:8a, and it says "The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me".   What?  Perfect?  Does that mean I (we) will become perfect?  Well, no.  We won't be "perfect" while we're here on Earth because we are sinful humans in need of a perfect Savior (only found in Jesus Christ, God in human flesh).  However, when we give our life to God and submit to His will for us, He begins to change and mold us, and to perform His perfect will in us.  Each day, week, month, and year that we continue to walk with Him; we will grow to become more and more like Him.  We will eventually become better individuals as He works to "perfect" us into who He knows we can be as we shine for Him and point others to Him.  When we finally get to Heaven, then we will be "perfect" because we will be exactly what and where God wants us, and we won't have ANY more sin. We will live forever with Him in glory with NO stress, no imperfections, NO sin, NO sorrow or pain etc.  Our lives can get difficult here; but this Earth is not anyone's eternal home.  God wants to "perfect" your by day; and He wants nothing more than for you (for everyone) to join Him in Heaven (a perfect place) to spend eternity (as opposed to Hell, separated from God forever - the only other option).  But in order for that to happen, we  must call on Him and ask Him to "perfect" us and guide us.  Let God "perfect that which concerns YOU".  Let Him have and guide ALL of you so that when your life on Earth is over, you can live in a PERFECT place, as a perfected being, in perfect eternal peace with a PERFECT Savior.  Praise God.
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.

I’ve loved this verse so much of my Chritian walk... it’s a grand verse to pray day by day too. Lovely DT inspiration as always too. I must subscribe to you on bloglovin, as now Bloggers feedburner is dying on 1st July I’m doing my blog post emails, have set up an email for it, and stated how on a post for folks to sign up for it too.
Thanks for Sharing, God bless and keep you safe, and all those you love, hugs Shaz in Oz.x
