Word Art Wednesday July 4






Happy Fourth of July!!!




This is my first week of being a guest designer at 





I am blessed to have this opportunity to be featured with the gifted designers there.




Join us and pick up the powerful verse that is offered free to you!








This verse is very personal to me.



There are times I've gotten caught up in challenges lost or submissions rejected in bloggy world...and the Lord whispers this verse to me.



Ahhhhh, I did it again, I realize.


I've put other endeavors before the Lord and filled my heart with them!



Yikers, I hate to admit how many times I've done that!!!



Today as we celebrate our freedom as a country...


may we also remember the ultimate freedom Jesus gives us when we allow Him to work in our hearts.


All disappointments and failures...even successes...pale in comparison to Him and His sacrifice on the cross.



May we give Him our ALL.




Have a blessed day.
