Anything Goes - Weeks #597-598

Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday, creative friends.  We're so glad you've joined us for this FUN challenge.  There's a brief devotional, a beautiful word art scripture which is a free download, another FAB sponsor, another lucky winner, lots of great inspiration, and loads of excitement waiting for you all in this challenge.  Thanks for playing along and please know how much we appreciate you joining us.

The word art sure is pretty, isn't it?  This beautiful verse from Hebrews 10:23 says, "Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for He is faithful that promised".  This part of scripture was written to Jewish Christians of that time who were suffering persecution for their new-found beliefs.  They were being persuaded to return to Judaism.  This verse warned them, as it warns each of us, that it's so important to hold fast to the profession of our faith in Jesus.  We should never waiver, never be ashamed, and never stop telling others.  In order to do that, WE must first completely understand just what it is we believe.  You could never tell someone a story if you had none of the facts or information about it, right?  Each of us is warned here to know what we believe, why we believe it, and to then boldly GO and share it.  If you're not quite sure about Christianity and having a personal relationship with Jesus (securing your eternal salvation), please reach out to someone.  We're always happy to answer the questions we are able to answer.  We can also get you in touch with a good Bible-teaching church in your area where you can learn more about Jesus.  It's the most important decision and the most important relationship you'll EVER have.  Whether you're still seeking God, you've recently been saved, or you've been saved and following Jesus for a long time; it's important to cling to Him and what He did for us.  He loves us SO MUCH.  Today is a great day to "hold fast to our profession of faith".  The verse reminds us that God is always faithful, and He keeps His promises.  Are we doing the same?

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.
