Anything Goes #507-508

Hello, and thanks so much for stopping by again to play along in our FUN challenge.  We have another really great challenge waiting for you all, and we couldn't be more delighted than to have YOU share your art and play along with us.  God has blessed us SO much, and we have another AWESOME sponsor for this challenge, Stix 2 Anything.  We also have a talented new Guest Designer joining us for the month of September, and that's Kailash Naidoo.  Let's get started with our challenge, and thanks again for joining us.

The word art was created using a beautiful verse of scripture, Psalm 91:4, which says "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler".  This is one of my favorite passages.  I remember first hearing and studying it when I was still rather young; and I recall pondering whether or not it was literal (his feathers/wings and all).  I've come to the belief (me personally) that it's  literal.  Although we are most certainly created "in His image", we also know that He is God (unique in every way) and I just believe that has to be (at least somewhat/somehow) a literal element to this Biblical truth.  What I do know FOR SURE is that it means He (God/Jesus Christ) is AMAZING; and that He will cover and protect us from ALL that surrounds us.  I know for certain that we can TRUST Him completely, and that his TRUTH (that He alone is God Almighty) will be our shield, our fortress, and safe place (from the enemy) and our "buckler" which again means a strong and sure defense.  We can always rest assured that when we place our trust in God alone and seek Him, He is always going to watch over us, protect us, and lead us into what is best for us.  Praise God for WHO He is, WHAT He has done, for HOW He watches over us, and for WHEN He will come again to take us to Heaven with Him FOREVER.  Is the TRUTH of Jesus your shield and buckler?

As always, you are welcome to save the word art to your computers; 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.
