Scripture Series: My God Shall Supply Stair Step Card---It's a Brand New Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday morning, everyone!  I hope you are warm where you are because my fingers are frozen from a chilly/freezing night here in Texas.  I keep on hitting the wrong keys of my keyboard cause my hands are super cold...LOL  But  you know what? Inside my heart, there is warmth.  That's because the Spirit of God lives inside of me which gives me the desire to lift up His name, irregardless of the weather, my circumstances and even  my own will at times.  Many times, I have to attack the negativity that comes to mind by using the best weapon God has placed inside me...the Word of God (The Bible)!  It is the written revelation of the One, True, Magnificent and Powerful GOD.  It contains 66 Books and written with many years apart, with different writers yet, despite the various hands that penned it, the message is solely about a  "Savior that comes to save His people from the hands of the wicked one---and will rule over all for life eternity." Why is the message of the Gospel clear despite the many writers and years in between each book?  It's because, the Bible has only One Source, One Author---God Himself!  Through the Holy Spirit, He used these mighty men of God to write what God revealed to them.  Among them were laws, instructions as well as prophecies---those that already came to pass and those of the future---it simply describes an infinite God who is the Beginning and the End (Alpha and Omega), Omnipotent and Omnipresent.  Without man, He will still be God but a man without God is nothing!  If you have not seen the Scriptures this way---open it's pages and like me, you'll be amazed at what you'll discover.  Oh the vastness of the knowledge of God...Purely awesome!  Just want to share with you these verses from the Bible:

2 Timothy 3:16-17: 
"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 

Hebrews 4:12-13:
"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. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account."

So, speaking of God's Word, we have a new Word Art at Word Art Wednesday (WAW) that you can download for free.  It's one of the first ones that spoke to my heart when I became a follower of Jesus Christ---It's in Philippians 4:19.  For your inspiration, I have created a card featuring the Word Art, an image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps that I colored with my Prismacolor/Pro Marker/Spectrum Noir markers and a flower image from Inkadinkado that I colored with Copics.  I used 4 different CS and created a base card that measures 5.5-inches square, die-cut some shapes with my Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge, added some glitters (Stickles), gems and lastly I stitched all over.  I love the Stair Step Card!  It always gives more than just a regular card.  So, how about joining us for our Challenge at WAW Blog?  Create a  project with our Word Art and link it to to our blog.  For more chances to win, link up to 5 projects  with an uplifting sentiment.  Can't wait to see what you have in store for us. This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Crafty Creations---Wise Words
2.    Great Impressions---Anything Goes (1/3)
3.    Make It Monday---Anything Goes 
4.    Pile It On---Pile on Embellishments
5.    Challenges 4 Everybody---Anything Goes 
6.    Aud Sentiment---Anything Goes with Sentiment





You know, when I am confronted by many trials---emotional, financial, etc---I speak of  Philippians 4:19 over my situation for I know that God's Word will never return void.  Though situations seem hopeless, I declare prosperity in time of need, health in time of sickness, rain in times of drought, peace in times of chaos.  I have a God who has authority over all and has proven His great love for me by His death on the Cross.  Truly, nothing is impossible with Him. True wealth can be found in God's Word.  Have a blessed day!
