Anything Goes - #619-620

Welcome back for another FUN challenge, everyone.  We have another great one planned for you and we are super excited to know that you're here to play along.  Thank you for joining us and sharing your wonderful art with us.  It means a lot to us that you're willing to share your art and we always look forward to seeing your amazing cards.  Let's get right into our new challenge with this brief devotional.

1 John 5:14 is our word art scripture and it says, "And this is the confidence that we have in him that, if we ask anything according to His will, he heareth us".  This is another verse that reminds us of how God will always hear us when we call on Him.  What a blessing it is to have direct access to God.  When we ask for our prayers to be accomplished according to His perfect will, He answers the prayer in a way that brings glory to His name.  When we trust Him fully and open our hearts to what He wants for us, we receive even better things because He will answer the prayers according to what He knows is best for us and that will most benefit us.  It's difficult sometimes to remember that we need to put aside our selfish motives/desires and seek what God knows is going to help us achieve our potential.  He will pour out blessings on us that we can't even imagine when we ask Him to answer our prayers in a way that honors Him.  God's Word assures us that what is best for us is always going to be the things in our lives that draw others to Him.  So, when you have a need and pray; rest assured that God will always hear you and He wants to show you His great plans to bless you as you seek Him.

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.
