Hello, sweet and creative blog friends. Welcome by Word Art Wednesday and thank you for joining us. We have another fabulous challenge for you with an awesome sponsor. God has been so good to us in providing sponsors for our challenges and we give Him thanks, honor and praise because that's the true objective of this challenge blog - to bring God glory. We do this through the art we create and share, by having fellowship together visiting each other's blogs, and by encouraging each other to live a life that is pleasing to God. With all that said, we're so grateful to have you here to play along with us and we appreciate the art you link up in our gallery.
The scripture used to create our (free) digital word art file for this challenge is Psalm 119: 2 and it reads, "Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart". Like all of the Psalms God has given to bless and encourage us, this Psalm reminds us that those who keep the "testimonies" (the doctrines) of God, and those who seek after Him with their whole heart WILL BE BLESSED. What a joy to know that. Praise God!! That doesn't mean we won't face difficulties and struggles in life, but it does assure that God will always be with us to love and support us through those difficult times. His love for us never changes and will never end. He loves us regardless of who we are and what we have done. He wants us to live our lives according to the testimonies of God's Word - the Holy Bible. This is how we can be assured that we're pleasing God in this lifetime, and that our eternal place with Him in Heaven has been secured based on God's forgiveness, His grace, His sinless offering, and His victory over the grave. Living our lives for God is our small way of showing that we love Him and that we respect Him as God Almighty, the Creator of Everything. Let God BLESS your life by living your life according to His standards, by living in line with the Word of God, and by seeking Him with your whole heart. I can promise you that this will lead you to happiness now, and a joy unspeakable for all eternity.
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.
