Inspirational Series: Faith is the Strength Card---Join Us for Another Wonderful Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

Good morning, everyone!  Just got done with the hustle and bustle of Christmas and I am looking forward on a time to recover from the busy days.  Had some fun with the family yesterday and as always, I am thanking the Lord Jesus for all He is.   He is a faithful God and though there were many uncertainties we encounter daily, He is the One who is constantly faithful, never changes His stand and whose words and promises can be trusted not only in this lifetime but most importantly in the life eternal.  

So talking about trusting God---I want to share to you my featured DT Card for this week's Challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  It is a quote from Helen Keller talking about the importance of faith...The kind that is given to us by the Only God!  We are only capable of trusting Him because of the precious work of the Holy Spirit in every person's life.  He witnesses before us the truth of God's Word and works within the parameters of the finished work of Christ on the Cross.  We can proclaim "Jesus Christ is Lord" because we inclined to the prodding of the Spirit Who witness before us the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  So this blessed season, thank God for the grace to trust in Him regardless of what situations we are in.  But how do we develop faith?  Like any other thing in our lives, we have to practice our faith daily, it does not happen in an instant, it's a lifestyle!  God's Word says:

"Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ." (Romans 10:17)"

Therefore we need to know God's Word and speak forth His promises to any situation we encounter daily knowing that God stands by His Word and by doing so, we develop our faith, trusting God more and more...

So, do you want to join our Challenge?   You can download the free Word Art by visiting the WAW Blog.  Use it in your card/project and link it to our Challenge.  You may enter up to 5 times as long as they are different.  You are not required to use the Word Art to join as long as you link projects with uplifting message, we will be happy to see what you got.  In my Card, I used an image from Saturated Canary called "Spring time" and I colored her with ProMarker/Prismacolor/Sharpie markers.  I used a white card base measuring 5.5 inches-square.  I altered some of the colors of the Word Art to compliment my image.  I added a red ribbon, a mini crochet flower (That I made!), brad, several aqua blue gems, glitter (Stickes-Lime Green) in the center of some flowers and paper pieced  the image with pop-dots for added dimension.  Then, I stitched all over...I am certainly pleased with the result of this Card.

I pray that your faith in the Lord Jesus will abound more and more as you meditate on His every Word.  "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6)
