Scripture Series: Like-Minded One to Another Card---Be Inspired by this Week's Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

Good Wednesday morning, you guys!  Hope you have a wonderful start of the day whether with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee, I pray for blessing to y'all these days.  For healing to those who are sick in all aspects of life and that the peace of  God touch your lives and restore you in Christ Jesus.  Today, we have another Word Art you can download for free at Word Art Wednesday (WAW) Blog.  It talks about being "like minded" with one another  or to be united with fellow believers of Christ.  The Apostle Paul wrote this letter to the Church (Body of Christ) in Rome to encourage them in the faith and to remind them to show love for one another.  Coming from different backgrounds (Jews and Gentiles), status (rich or poor) and racial backgrounds, it was not easy for believers to unite together.  And like before, we as Christ believers today, may encounter some circumstances that we simply could not agree completely.  Sadly, most of them does not even have to do with our faith but just merely, opinions and preferences.  So, how do we unite? ---The answer is simply by seeking God's Word and studying it diligently so as to have wisdom and understanding.  Knowing that we are not called by God to burden  one another with religious rules of the past but by the newness of Spirit in Christ Jesus---we are to choose wisely our words and always act in love.  It does not mean that everyone will have to like you but having that peace of mind at the end of the day that you obeyed the voice of the Lord to strive towards unity, understanding and love is such a blessing.  Now, for the unbelievers who have not come to the knowledge of Christ yet, we know that we may not be able to establish complete unity with them in the many issues of life because the ways of the world has nothing in common with the ways of the Kingdom.  Yet we are told to love one another that we may witness to those who are outside of the Kingdom what the "Kingdom of God" is truly all about.  I know it is not an easy task but through the guidance and help of the Holy Spirit, we will carry through.

So, here's my inspiration card for today's WAW Challenge.  Since the Word Art  is lengthy, I decided to highlight it to the fullest by adding some color to the essence of the verse.  Then, I colored a very beautiful digi stamp from Kenny K Downloads called, "Color me Janette," with my ProMarker/Prismacolor/Spectrum Noir markers making sure I matched the color of the " pen marker" in the digi with the color I added to the verses, so it looked like the image (girl)  highlighted the verse (very clever, huh!).  I also scribbled the words "Scripture Marker" on the "pen marker" image and I was pretty pleased with how my penmanship looked like it belonged there...LOL.  I used a Kraft CS as base card, cut at 5.5 inches.  The DP's are all from My Mind's Eye and the CS are Ecru (from Core'dinations) and Blue-grey from (Paper Studio).  I die cut the Octagon using the largest of the set from Nestabilities, used a border stamp on one of my panels from EK Success, cut a couple of circles at 4.5" and 4.75" inches using the small MS Circle Cutter.  I inked all my panels using Tim Holtz Distress "Pumice Stone", attached some white gems from Imaginisce, a crochet flower (that I make and sell---check my Etsy shop!) with a brad in the center from my stash and the dotted swirl stamped all over this card is from Inkadinkado.  Finally, the stitching!  I am surprised with my choices of DP's since I always go towards the brighter colors but because I love both the Word Art and the image, I decided the best way to highlight them is to use muted colors and I must say I achieved it!  Hope you like it.
