Challenge #86 - Anything Goes

Here we are at another Wednesday, and another AWESOME challenge.  This week, we are blessed to have Cheery Lynn Designs as our sponsor.  They are offering one lucky winner a gorgeous die-cut.   We are SO BLESSED to have such wonderful sponsors, and we know that this is a prize well worth playing for.  We look forward to seeing the art you create this week.

This week's scripture file comes from Ephesians Chapter 2, and verse 10.  It tells us that "we are His workmanship".  Have you ever felt "down on yourself"?  Or let someone else say and do things that cause you to believe that you are not of great value?  Well, the Bible tells us that we are the workmanship (the creation) of God Almighty.  The awesome God of the universe, Who created ALL things, does NOT make anything less than wonderful.  Because it is HE Who has created us, we are wonderful and special in the sight of the Lord.  Don't ever let ANYONE allow you believe differently.  He created you just the way He wanted you, and He doesn't make mistakes.  He can use you just as you are.  This verse also tells us that we are created unto good works.  This means that we are created to do good works that will glorify Him.  Our works do not save us, but they bring glory to the One that created us.  He knew, even before we were born, that we would be the special, individual creatures He created us to be.  Rejoice in the fact that God loves you JUST the way you are, and that He created you to do good for others so that His name might be lifted up and praised!

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 our challenges.   We welcome you share your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. You can also link more than one project each week (up to 5 each week). The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning. We just  want God's Word to 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".  They have been recently revised.

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