Scripture Series: Walketh in His Integrity Card---Link With Us for some Family Friendly Challenge Happening at Word Art Wednesday!

Hello Crafty Peeps...Here I am to feature another Scripture Word Art (you can download for free) for our Word Art Wednesday (WAW) ChallengeIt's taken from Proverbs 20:7 which says, "The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him."  As we celebrate Father's Day this coming weekend, let us first and foremost thank the Father of all fathers, our God Almighty!  Through the life of Jesus, we were able to see and understand the vastness of the heart of God.  His reliability, dependability, His provision, His forgiveness and His love amidst all others.  Righteousness (being "Just") can only come from the very One who is the epitome of the word.  Before Man fell into sin, we were created with the  righteousness of God---being clothed in His glory.  But we gave that all up when we took the side of the enemy.  As a result, we can see and experience the effects of that downfall as we look throughout history.  In our day and time, many men don't even know what it takes to be honest, reliable, unselfish, honorable and what true love is all about, among others.  They father many kids but don't care to man up and be a true father to them.  That is why our nation have aborted over 5.5 million babies since abortion was legalized in this country.  Sad but very true!

The  only way we can come out of such a downfall is to reconnect with our Source of Righteousness.  He provided the Only Way for us to do so---through His Son, Jesus Christ!  Romans 1:16-17 tells us, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”"  It is through faith in the Gospel (death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ) that every man is able to break free from the bondage of Sin (Sin Nature) and put on the righteousness of God---a gift from the Father!  Other than this, there's no other way for us to live a "Just" life.  Galatians 2:16 says, "Know that a person is not justified by the works of the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So we, too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no one will be justified."  So, today, if you have an earthly father who have a personal relationship (Born-Again, John 3:3) with Jesus Christ, he may not be perfect but rest assured that God is changing him from glory to glory to be a righteous head of your household.  He will need every bit of help from his wife and children to fulfill His task and purpose in this world.  His Godly examples will be a model to his children and for all generations to come.  If we have fathers who has not come to the knowledge of Christ yet, keep on praying for them.  Show them respect and love that through your example, they will see the working of the Lord and receive Him. Happy Father's Day, everyone!

For this Card, I used an image from one of our sponsors, Bugaboo Digi Stamps called "Sign It-Girl."  I colored it with my ProMarker/Prismacolor markers.  The base is white CS, cut and scored to make a 5.5 inches square card.  I used a Corner Chomper to round a couple of sides.  The DP's are from Pebbles.  I used a Paper Studio Washi Tape to create the colorful strip and added  a brad.  I also used some glitters (Stickles-Crystal) to some parts of the image for some sparkle.  Lastly, I stitched all over this Card.  Pretty satisfied with the results.
