Anything Goes - Weeks #617-618

Welcome back to Word Art Wednesday, everyone.  We're so glad you're here to play along in our FUN challenge.  We have a beautiful scripture digi that you're welcome to save, a brief devotional based on this scripture, some awesome inspiration to get you started, a lucky Winner, a Top 3, and another wonderful prize up for grabs in the new challenge.  Lots of fun for everyone is what we have planned; and we're SO glad you're here to join us.

The word art for this challenge is from a wonderful scripture - Psalm 32:8 which says, "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye".  Have you ever heard that saying, "I wish life came with a manual?  or I wish parenthood (etc.) came with a manual?  Well, in actuality, there is a manual for life and all it brings.  God's Word tells us that there's no temptation we will face that hasn't been faced by others.  God's Word also promises us that He will always provide a way for us to escape the choice to sin and that He'll give us "an escape" from sin.  God's Word is filled with wise words of rich instruction through His perfect love.  By studying the Bible, we are able to receive God's perfect instruction for every situation life can throw out way.  God desires to bless us as we seek His instruction.  This verse also says that He will "guide us with His eye"; meaning that He will never take His all-seeing eyes off of us.  By simply studying His instruction manual (the Holy Bible), He will fully equip us with the knowledge we need to avoid sin and live a blessed life.  Give God praise for every single word He's given us.

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.
