Challenge #68 - Anything Goes

Hello again, friends!  Hope you're having a great week.  Thanks for joining us for another fun challenge.  We greatly enjoyed all the great projects you shared with us last week, and we're excited to see what you will share in this week's challenge.  Also, next week is the first week of our special give-away.  For this week's challenge, we also have two amazing sponsors.  God is SO GOOD, and we feel very blessed to have you all join us as we watch Him continue to provide for our challenges.  Thanks for being part of what God is doing here at Word Art Wednesday.

This week's word art/scripture comes from the Book of Psalms, Chapter 119 and v.80, and it speaks of how very important it is to know God's Word.  Let's all be honest here.....the Bible, God's Word, is FILLED with so much helpful information; but it's overwhelming to take it all in at once.  But it can be done over time, as we begin to study it and continue to grow and learn from it every day of our lives.  We cannot KNOW IT and LIVE IT if we don't study it.  And the best way to do that is through instruction (church, etc.) and through personal time IN THE WORD studying and meditating on it.  This is the only way we can truly KNOW GOD, and know His statutes (laws, commands, and instructions) for our lives.  When we begin to know His Word more fully and clearly, it helps us to be more equipped to handle all the different things that come our way in life.  We can't expect to know how to handle life's struggles if we don't know what God's Word says.  We won't be at a loss for words, a loss for solutions, or have to live with regrets or be ashamed of our choices and actions when we know for certain how God wants us to live.  It's just SO very important to study God's Word to help us become equipped and aware as HOW to live the good life He wants for us, and for us to not have to be ashamed or live with regrets and doubts.  Life DOES come with an instruction manual; and that instruction manual is called the Bible, and we encourage you to really read/study it, and let it bless your life.

You are welcome to save this week's free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are not required to use it in order to play along in the challenge. We simply hope to have you share your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-freindly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. You can also link more than one project each week (up to 5). The more, the merrier. We just hope that God's Word will be a blessing and encouragement to you each week. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "Challenge Rules".

Here is this week's free scripture/word art. We hope you enjoy it!

Blessings and thanks!
