Weeks #513-514 - Anything Goes

Welcome to Word Art Wednesday, everyone, and thanks for joining us.  We have another FUN challenge waiting for you with lots of great inspiration, an awesome sponsor, a brief devotional, and free digi scripture.  There's always lots of fun and excitement for you here at Word Art Wednesday, and we always LOVE having you share your wonderful art with us.  If we don't make it by your blog to leave a comment, I do apologize.  Please know, however, that we're SO very grateful for each and every one of you; and for every card and project you link to our gallery. Your talents always amaze us.  Let's get started with our new challenge, shall we?

The Bible verses used to create the word are from Psalm 119:125,129 which read, "I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.  Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them".  These two scripture verses were combined to remind us that we are God's servants; meaning He is above us in every way.  It also tells us that when we truly belong to God and live for Him, we will desire to know Him more fully so that we will truly learn how to have a personal relationship with Him.  God knows EVERY intimate secret detail about us; much do we know about God?  To love someone is to WANT to get to know them - fully.  When we take the time to really get to know God, we'll learn of all the wonderful things He has done, Who He is, and all the ways our lives will be blessed through our knowledge of Him.  The more we know God, the more we will desire to keep His commands, to learn, and to live in a way that will bless us and bring Him glory.  The BLESSED life comes through knowing God and understanding Him.  Is He your friend?  Do you know Him?  He sure wants to know you.  

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.
