Scripture Series: Bear One Another's Burdens Card---It's Time for Another Inspirational Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

Hello there, Crafty Peeps! It's time for another bi-weekly Challenge at Word Art Wednesday (WAW).  As usual, we are featuring a Scripture Word Art that you can download for free at the WAW site.  This Challenge highlights a verse coming from Galatians 6:2 which says, "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ."

The past few weeks, we witnessed what the ungodly politicians would do to destroy anyone's reputation to derail the appointment of someone who would be faithful to interpret the rule of law (our Constitution) from being carried out in this country.  For the past eight years of previous administration, they wreak havoc to transform every pillars of our society towards ungodliness with an agenda to destroy this nation.  They turned many of us into a lawless, racist, divisive, unpatriotic, haters of God kind of people.  And all that time, God-fearing men and women of God vexed our souls and cried unto the Lord to save our nation from the demonic destruction it was headed to.  On Presidential election night of 2016, I felt sad in my spirit---not sure of the plight of Donald Trump whom I voted for earlier that day.   The thought of Clinton taking the office as POTUS and the evil she stood for horrified me.  So, even though I wasn't a fan of Trump (not knowing how true he would be to his promises during the campaign), I was led to vote for him as I prayed and plead the grace of God for our country.  It was not a fancy  prayer.  It was one of those prayers that words could not express coming from an honest place in my heart asking for the power of God to intervene and show our nation mercy and deliverance.  So, upon the announcement of Trump winning the election when the liberals were already celebrating their anticipated victory (I stayed up till it was announced), you can imagine how joyful and thankful I was to witness an honest to goodness miracle that day.  While rejoicing, I saw a report of the many others that did a coordinated prayer and election watch that night  not only here in this nation but all over the world, including Israel.  They showed a graph when election began to turn in our favor that night.  It was at the time when many of us prayed in unity.  Wow,  I cried tears of joy having seen an actual/tangible evidence of what I believed and claimed all along in my spirit---that God would answer the prayers of His people! 

So here we are,  nearly two years after and President Trump exceeded every expectations.  Not only did he fulfill most of his campaign promises but he stood up with all the bullies in both national and international level.  I have seen how God used him from the very day he assumed office to undo the evil the former  administration established and bring us back to the rule of law, love of country and love of God.  And its obvious to me that he's able to do all that (amidst all the threat of terrorists and God hating citizens of this country) because the guidance and protection of Almighty God is upon him.  Surely, God can use anybody.  If God used a donkey to speak to Balaam in Numbers 22:28, why would we doubt that He could use a man (who does not fit our mold of spirituality) to run this country?  When God sends a man to fulfill His holy purpose, He gives him power and authority.  So until God's plan is fulfilled in that individual, no one can take him/her out.  But of course, Satan and his minions know that their time is short and had to display their vile and utter hatred against the rule of God in this country.  So they use everything we hold dear to us and they twist and pervert them to attract support and deceive the gullible and unsuspecting---those who are blind and weak in spirit.  They do everything to get a hold of public office and target our children.  They indoctrinate them with hatred for God and country and encourage them to all sorts of sexual immorality.  So be it in school or at home (where most media programs the kids watch, including commercials, are tainted with demonic agenda) parents (some unknowingly) feed their children to these Satanic wolves.  Recently, we saw the repulsive acts of godless politicians in the nomination proceedings prior to the confirmation of  now Supreme Court Judge---Brett Kavanaugh.  The undeniable lack of decency and baseless accusations of their politicians tried to force us to condemn people without due process---anything to get their way and continue their evil agenda to destroy this nation.  Church, we better wake up!  Let us stop waiting for others who are sleeping and have turned away from the Truth.  Yes, we are to pray for them but at the same time, we need to fight the good fight of faith.  Speak the Truth in boldness and refuse political correctness.  If one of us is being attacked for doing what is right in the sight of God, we are to carry each other's burdens by uniting in prayer and marching into action.  Always remembering Proverbs 29:2 which says, "When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan."  Let us not allow the wicked mob to intimidate nor stop us.  Encourage God-fearing man to run for office and support them in every way.  Start by voting God and freedom loving candidates to office this November.  I believe we are under God's protection so, let us go out there and defeat the demonic mob by exercising our God-given right to vote.  Be proactive, never passive!  That way, we can continue to see the law of Christ reigning in this nation.  Are you with me?

For this Card, I used an image from our wonderful sponsor, Graciellie Designs, called "Daffodil" from Simple Wisdom Set. I colored it with my ProMaker/Prismacolor markers.  The base is white CS, cut and scored to make a 5.5 inches square card.  The background stamps are from Dylusions, the glitters from Stickles (Crystal) and the border punch from EK Success.  I also attached some nail head gems from Imaginisce.  Lastly, I stitched all over this card.
