Challenge #326 - #327........Anything Goes

Hello, everyone!  Welcome back for another FABULOUS challenge.  We're SO glad that you're here to play along with us.  Our dear friends from Freckled Fawn are back to offer some of their amazing wares to one of our lovelies playing along.  This may be YOUR lucky week, and we're looking forward to seeing what you will link up in this challenge.  We're ready to get started.

The Bible verse used for this beautiful piece of word art is Psalm 93:4, and it says "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters; yea, than the mighty waves of the sea".  For anyone who has ever stood at the edge of a vast body of water (such as Lake Superior (a Great Lake), The Atlantic or Pacific Ocean, or another very large body of water; you are quickly reminded of its great size, how deep and powerful its waters are, and how strong its waves can grow to be.  However, this scripture reminds us that God is bigger, stronger and greater than the mightiest waters and waves because 1) He created them, and so 2) He controls them.  Despite the power of these great bodies of water and their waves, God alone possesses the power to stop the waves, direct the waves, make water change course, disappear, or anything else He chooses.  He is in control of ALL things including, but never limited to, the mighty waves of the sea.  It's important to remember His power and strength.  He is able to use His amazing power to protect His children.  God maintains ALL power, and He gives it freely to His Son, Jesus Christ, the Lord from heaven who alone gives atonement for our sins.  He can pardon our sins and protect us once we have placed our trust in Him.  It's important to realize His power and strength and His willingness to use His might to protect us even though He is a sovereign and just God, and we are sinners.  In awe of Him, we should thank Him for first forgiving us, and then loving and protecting us with the power of eternity that ONLY He offer.  We are so blessed to be loved by Him.....our mighty and powerful God.

As always, you are welcome to save the free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are never required to use it in order to play along in our challenges.   We welcome you share your all your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. This includes any type of altered or digital art (not just limited to cards).  You may link up to five (5) projects each week. 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 encouragement to you as we share it. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "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 simply attempting to honor God and follow His rules.  Let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for your understanding and participation!

that it will be a blessing to you.
