Challenge #93 - Anything Goes

It's time for another great new challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday!  We had SO many gorgeous entries last week, and we want you ALL to know how much we enjoy seeing your cards and having you share with us.  We've gotten away from announcing a Top 3 each week, and we apologize for that.  It's SO difficult narrowing it down and picking a Top 3 when there are SO many delightful creations linked to our challenges, but this week we had such amazing cards that we couldn't resist announcing our Top 3.  However, PLEASE know that you are ALL winners in our book!
 
This week's scripture/word art is Psalm 119:33.  When the Psalmist wrote this passage, he was clearly seeking to know God, and had a strong desire to be instructed in the way of God's laws.  We should all have this same desire to know Him fully, and have that strong desire to live our lives according to His perfect ways.  It's clear that our lives are blessed, more peaceful and happy, when we are in submission to His will and living according to His statutes.  Just as it's important for children to be instructed in the ways of the Lord and keep His laws all throughout their lives, it's equally important for us (as adults) to seek God's instruction for our lives.  There is such peace, joy and serenity in living our lives according to His perfect will for our lives, and it is our sincere desire to encourage everyone to seek after God.  His Word is such a blessing!
 
You are welcome to save this week's free scripture/word art file to your computer, but are not required to use it in order to play along in our challenges.   We welcome you share your art with us; remembering that Anything Goes as long as it's family-friendly, and uses an encouraging or uplifting sentiment. You can also link more than one project each week (up to 5 each week). The more you enter, the more you increase your odds of winning. We just  want God's Word to be a blessing and encouragement to you each week. If you have any questions about the rules, be sure to read the complete list of rules under our page tab for "Challenge Rules".  They have been recently revised, and we ask that you check them out if you aren't familiar with our challenge guidelines.  Because our ultimate goal is to honor God, we have no other choice but to delete any entries that do not adhere to these guidelines.

Here is this week's free scripture/word art. We hope you enjoy it!
