Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday for another FUN challenge. We have another awesome sponsor, a brief devotional, two lucky winners and a Top 3, some great inspiration, and loads of excitement waiting for you all. Let's jump right in and get started with this new challenge. We are SO glad you've chosen to join us.
PLEASE NOTE: If you've not read our Rules Page, you'll want to do so. Nobody will ever win a prize here at Word Art Wednesday if they don't read and FOLLOW the rules. That's just out of fairness to everyone. Someone's number popped up as our winner this week, but they had not followed our rules and I had to pick a different winner. PLEASE be sure to follow the rules so that you don't "cheat yourself" out of an awesome prize.
Our scripture of focus is Psalm 20:6 and it reads, "Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand". The Psalmist is saying that he KNOWS the Lord (God, the ONE and ONLY true God) alone can, will, and does SAVE His people when He hears us call on Him. Yes, God hears YOU. He hears ME. God CARES. He is in Heaven, and yet He hears our cries. When we cry out to God for help of any kind, He always hears us and reaches us with the "saving strength of his right hand". God became flesh, came to earth and dwelt among us. He gave His perfect sinless life as a payment for our shortcomings and paid a debt that we could never pay. It doesn't matter what your struggles are today. Call on God and He absolutely WILL meet your needs "with the saving strength of his right hand". 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 or to win in our challenges. We welcome you to share all of your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family friendly. 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 an encouragement to you as we share it. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules found under our Page tab marked "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 our guidelines. Please know that this doesn't mean we are judging anyone. We're not. We are simply attempting to honor God and follow His rules. Please let us know if you have any questions about anything; and thank you for your understanding and participation.
