Scripture Series: Before the Eyes of the Lord Card---Another Bi-Weekly Challenge Happening at Word Art Wednesday!

Hi there, everyone!  Here to share the card I made for our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday (WAW) featuring the Scripture Word Art (you can download for free at the WAW site) found in Proverbs 5:21 which says, "For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings."
The context of the entire chapter of  Proverbs 5  deals with the importance of marriage and the madness of defiling that covenant we made not only with our spouse but with God. provided a good explanation to this chapter including our highlighted scripture in Proverbs 5:21.  It says,  "Strong warning is given to beware of the prostitute and the temptations she offers. (The frequency of this warning in Proverbs indicates that prostitution must have been a widespread social evil at the time.) The pleasure that the prostitute brings is shortlived, but the bitterness that follows is lasting. It leads eventually to death (5:1-6). A man must flee the temptations offered by such immoral company, otherwise he may finish a physical and moral ruin. Moreover, he could find that he loses his possessions to those who have mercilessly deceived him (7-10). In addition to being disgraced by his own conduct, he will be overcome by despair as he thinks back on his stupidity in refusing to heed advice (11-14). The married man should be faithful to his wife and seek his sexual pleasures in her alone. He should seek no pleasures from the immoral women who move around the streets and market places trying to seduce people (15-20). Married or single, a man must bear in mind that God sees everything. He must remember also that if he lacks self-discipline he will fall to temptation and eventually bring suffering upon himself (21-23)."
Ephesians 5:22-33  showed us how God patterned the relationship between a husband and a wife to the relationship between Jesus and the Church. As the Body of Christ focuses  on Jesus alone, the relationship between husband and wife should be one of love, trust, respect and commitment.  We are not to think or do anything that would defile the sanctity of that union as it is sacred unto the Lord. Likewise in my personal relationship with the Lord Jesus, I have given myself to Him as my Father, my Lord and my Savior.  I'm committed to serve Him and Him alone. His Word is true and His faithfulness to His creation is immeasurable.  From the beginning, God provided us with every good thing but mankind betrayed Him by taking the side of the enemy and inherited  Satan's Sin (rebellious, depraved) nature.  But even in our wicked condition, He chose to save us by sending His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the ransom for our freedom with His blood. Romans 5:6-8 clearly tells us, "You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." But the sad thing is that many have chosen/will choose to reject this gift of salvation.  They come up with senseless excuses all the while trying to hide the truth that they love the things of this world---depravity and all!  Gone were the days when people are actually ashamed of their sins. Not only are they proud of their sinful lifestyle choices nowadays but they encourage and empower the weak, the gullible, the young and the confused of our society (including the children)  to partake and support their demonic confusion/delusion. In exchange for worldly wealth, fame and power, they sell their souls to Satanic cults/groups to lie, steal, kill and destroy not only themselves but others as representatives of Satan to the world.  They conspire with each other to hold everyone hostage to their globalists plan by calling God's Truth false and their lies as truth using education, mainstream/social media, entertainment, dirty/ungodly politicians as their representatives while censoring and eliminating  facts that destroys their demonic agenda.  

All of these things were already revealed to us in the Scriptures so that we, the Body of Christ (Born-Again, John 3:3), would be wise in discerning the times so as not to fall for their deception.  The ungodly thinks that they can hide their evil plots from the Lord and mock God's omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence.  They are fools!  For everyone that rejected God's Only Way of salvation will suffer the wrath of God's justice for motives and actions done in this world---out in the open or in utter secrecy. They are society's modern day prostitutes that's trying to destroy the family unit.  God reserved a horrendous place of eternal torment for them with their father, Satan.  But while they're still on earth, make sure you don't drink of their poison. You can only do so by saturating yourself with the Word of God, pray without ceasing and be sensitive to the guiding presence of the Holy Spirit.  In thought and in deed, stay true to the calling made possible by our New Covenant in Christ Jesus!
For this Card, I used a rose cutting die from Momenta and a DP from My Mind's Eye.  I found a great design on the paper I chose that would compliment my die-cut and where I could print the Scripture Word Art.  It turned out great and I was happy with the lay-out. I chose to keep it simple but adding the brads and the fancy stitching elevated the vintage feel to this project.  I'm truly satisfied with the result.
