Anything Goes - Weeks #639-640

It makes us so happy to see you here at Word Art Wednesday and we really appreciate you being here.  We have another awesome challenge ready for you with a FABULOUS sponsor, lots of great inspiration, a brief and encouraging devotional, and hearts filled with gratitude that you've chosen to join us.  Our prayer is that this challenge will be a blessing to you, to your life, to your relationship with God, and just a place where you feel loved, supported and appreciated.

Our word art scripture is Habakkuk 3:19 which says, The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet; and He will make me to walk upon mine high places".  KJV This verse is saying first that the Lord God is our source of strength.  He is what makes us strong during difficult times because "His strength is made perfect in weakness (our weakness).  This is always a tremendous blessing to know that God's strength will carry me when I am weak.  The verse goes on to say that God will makes my feet like hinds' feet which is a reference to the strength of (the writer's) our faith.  And finally, the verse tells us that God will "make us to walk upon our high places".  The reference to "high places" is comparing the heights of our salvation to something that only a righteous man can climb to/reach through the confidence in their faith in Christ Jesus. If you aren't absolutely certain about your eternal security in Heaven with Him, then chances still have some things to talk about with God.  You can secure your eternal salvation and settle it today once and for all.  You can get all your questions answered.  If that's something you'd like to discuss, please reach out to us.  If you are saved already, then I encourage you to draw closer than ever to God.  He wants to heal every aspect of your life and give you the strength you need to conquer life's battles; but first we have to allow Him in to do that work in us.  May God bless you and speak to your heart this week.  Thanks for reading.

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.
