PRAISE GOD! Word Art Wednesday has been hosting challenges since 2011 (and I took over in 2012). That means I've been doing this for over ten years now. I can't thank God enough for ALL He has done here. None of this would be possible without Him because He has provided the sponsors, the participants, and has allowed us to share His precious holy Word through our art. I really do hope that you will thank Him for this challenge blog. God is just SO good to us. I'm happy to announce that we will be back again in 2023 for another year of FUN....all because of His goodness.
The Bible verse of focus for this challenge is Psalm 79:13 and it reads, "So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever; we will shew forth thy praise for ever". Let me ask a simple question. When is the last time you actually said the words (out loud) "thank you, Lord, for all you've done for me". Those of us who have placed our eternal faith in Jesus alone are considered "His people and the sheep of His pasture". That means He is watching over us 24/7/365. Nobody else does that for me. When this verse says, "we will shew forth thy praise to all generations", it's telling us that we need to show our praise for Him AND we also need to teach future generations to give Him the praise He deserves. Although I fail sometimes, I want to be found faithful in all that I do for Him. I want my children and my grandchildren to SEE me read my Bible, to HEAR me praise His holy name, and to WATCH me live my life for Him. Let's all, every one of us, try our very best to aTHANK GOD every day. Let the enemy hear it, let our children and grandchildren hear it, and let our precious Savior, Jesus, hear it. Give God the thanks and the praise for ALL He has done. Say it out loud....THANK YOU, LORD JESUS.
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.
