Hope this finds everyone of you well and blessed, enjoying the summer. We have another Anything Goes Family Friendly challenge for you at Word Art Wednesday! Hope you will be encouraged to share your art work with us. It's wonderful to see so many upload their creations. Mostly it's cards but occasionally we will see some journal pages, scrapbook pages and I'm hoping we will see more Bible journaling pages! I need to get busy and work in my Faith journal, too and so I love to see ideas! Korin at Sweet 'n Sassy stamps has some wonderful pages that she has done and she will be one of our sponsors in November (Yay!!)
This week our Scripture art is from Isaiah 58:11 and here is my card for the challenge. I used a few dies and a punch to help design this card. (there is a list at the end of the post of the ingredients)
Today's Scripture influenced my choice of colors and paper, I wanted to make sure it represented a spring of water and a garden that was flourishing.
I hope you will take the time to read all of Isaiah 58 because there are some conditions noted by the word "if" and "then" that the Lord has spoken through Isaiah. It was a rebuke of their shallow worship in the first few verses because the Lord wanting to guide them, needed for them to stop with their empty religious ritual and worship Him with a devotional true heart and walk according to His will. And then, to the truly repentant worshiper comes the promise of blessings. This chapter is an eye-opener, I hope you will take the time to read it and really "chew" on it! And if there are changes that need to take place in your life then make the changes and expect the blessings! God is faithful!
