Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday. We hope you're ready for another super FUN challenge, and we're beyond grateful for your willingness to participate and share your wonderful art with us. We have another awesome challenge ready for you all, so let's jump right in and get started.
The Bible verse where we got this beautiful word art is Romans 10:15b which says, "How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things". This verse is reminding us that we have a responsibility to pray for pastors, evangelists and missionaries. Really, it's our job to pray every day for those who don't know the Lord as their Savior; and in turn to also pray for those who have dedicated their lives to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. When our middle daughter felt the calling to become a missionary and ended up marrying Nathan at Bible College; we knew that we'd have to make some difficult sacrifices. It's not easy having our children and grandchildren living on the other side of the world. However, we praise God because we know that He has said "how beautiful are the feet of them" and we know that His hand of mercy and protection is upon them as they go. Each of us can be a missionary right where God has placed us. If you can't physically GO, then be sure to PRAY for missions and missionaries, and for ALL those who bring the Good News of Jesus to others. Each of us can pray and each of us can praise God for those God has called to His service. Always remember that YOU are an important part of God's work and that your prayers matter. Let's each do our part to support those who are bringing glad tidings of good things to others. Remember, "the fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much" and YOU can support missions and the spreading of the Gospel simply by praying. We encourage you to be a part of what God is doing. The results are eternal.
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.
