Scripture Series: I Am Called By Thy Name Center Step Card---Join Us for Another Inspirational Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

 Hi there!  It's another Wednesday morning and that means, I am going to highlight another card for our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  Today's featured Word Art (you can download for free at the WAW Blog) is from Jeremiah 15:16.  As Jeremiah knew the importance of God's Word in His day and time,  the Word of God is to become our daily source of sustenance for our spiritual nourishment.  As food feeds out physical bodies, we are to feed our spirit with spiritual food.  The Bible declares in John 6:63, "The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. And the very words I have spoken to you are spirit and life."  Jesus is the perfect and most complete revelation of God to us yet the Scriptures (Bible---God's Word) is His written revelation so, when we begin to meditate on the Word of God, His Word becomes alive in us.  As we seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit to open our eyes and our hearts to what He wants to reveal, we will find those scriptures come alive in us as we respond to His instructions.  We'll find joy and peace in that whatever comes our way, we know that His promises He's going to fulfill.  The Bible tells us that God's Word knows our thoughts (motives) in Hebrews 4:12, "For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."  When we step in faith, follow God's Word and enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, we have the blessed assurance from God's Word that what Jesus accomplished by way of His death, burial and resurrection is ours to claim. As we were all identified with Adam in the Fall of Man and lived in darkness so are we identified with Jesus' victory upon the Cross and His Resurrection by solely trusting in Jesus Christ.  Without the guidance of God's Word, we will remain ignorant of the saving grace God already provided.  Through His Word, I know I am called by His Name and have been predestined to live with Him eternally.  If you haven't read the Bible, why not begin now.  I am here to help if you have any questions.  I boldly declare this scripture in Psalm 119:105 in my life, "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."

So, here's my inspiration card for you today.  I used one of my fave digis from Mo Manning called "Peaches" and colored it with my ProMarker/Prismacolor/Spectrum Noir markers.  I laid all my panels in a 5.5 inches Center Step Kraft Card base.  The DP's are from DCWV and the CS are pink, aqua green, yellow and kraft.  I used my Cuttlebug to die cut a couple of Nestabilities dies (Scallop Square and Scallop Circle) and cut some circles with my MS Small Circle Cutter.  I added some glitters on the peach and butterflies using Stickles (Diamond).  And finally, I went crazy placing several of those white gems from Imaginisce (definitely my fave embellishment) and stitched all over this card.  I am super happy with how the colors turned out.  Looking at it just makes me happy.  What do you think?
