Anything Goes - Weeks #641-642

Welcome back by, everyone.  It's time for another FUN challenge here at Word Art Wednesday and we have something extra exciting for this challenge.  A new sponsor to us this year is the wonderful Trinity Stamps, and they are offering up a very generous prize.  We're always grateful for our awesome sponsors, and we encourage you to stop by these amazing companies to support them - or at a minimum, to look around and leave them a comment thanking them for supporting our crafting community.

Our devotional today focusses on the scripture John 1:4 which reads, "In Him was life; and the life was the light of men".  This verse proclaims Christ's role as the giver of life.  The writer, John, refers to Jesus in this verse as "the light".  To a Hebrew at that time, light was the ultimate value.  This verse means that Jesus is the source of the fountain of both natural and spiritual life, and that He has the same attributes as God.  John also emphasizes fellowship with both the Father and the Son, and his purpose for writing this letter was to make their mutual joy complete.  You and I are also being offered this same "light" which we clearly see is "the light of men" and our only hope of having eternal fellowship with God.  Any time you, or someone you care about, is going through a "dark" time in life, you/they can find the "light", the hope and the joy that only God can offer.  Don't let our enemy (Satan) steal our light, our hope or our joy.  Simply call on God, tell Him you want to experience His light, His hope and His joy.  It will make ALL the difference and God WILL take you from the darkness into His wonderful light.

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.
