Welcome back, everyone! We're always so grateful to have you stop by to read our post, get some inspiration, and play along in our FUN challenges. Your amazing creativity is a treat for our eyes week after week. Please know that even if we don't get to every blog post, we do notice your art and we are SO incredibly grateful that you share your talents and art with us. We love seeing your entries, and we thank God for you. By the way, I'd love to know if you're praying about our 2022 sponsors. Those last few spots are filling in nicely. Praise God!
Our word art for this challenges is from Isaiah 43:6-7 which read, "I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him: yeah; I have made him". Just as they were back in the time these words were written, people had family members all over the world as we do today. He was calling for his sons and daughters from all parts of the earth to come together. Just as all those who are called by His name need to come together now (and always) for the cause of Christ. He calls us from the north, from the south, from wherever we are. He needs YOU and ME to share His love with everyone in this lost, dark world. As the verse says, "He made us for His glory". It also reminds us that He created us (we did NOT evolve - we were created in His likeness), that He formed us (He knows every detail about us), and that He made us (He is constantly making us into the best versions of ourselves when we seek after Him. God is calling us all to follow Him and to share His love with our hurting world. At a minimum, each of us can PRAY for others, for our leaders (President, all in authority, police, etc.) and most of all - PRAY for the LOST world to simply turn their hearts to God for ALL the answers they seek. Only GOD has the eternal answer we all need.
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.
