Ephesians 6-11

Happy New Year! I hope each of you had a wonderful Christmas and 2019 is off to a good start for you. It's time for the first Word Art Wednesday challenge of the year. This week we're focusing on Ephesian 6:11, "Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be ale to stand again the wiles of the devil." What a great way to start off a new year, putting on the armor of God. Verses 14-17 in Ephesians 6 talk about the pieces of armor in more detail. We're to put on truth, righteousness, preparation of the gospel of peace, salvation, faith and arm ourselves with the Word of God. The beginning of the year is when we sort of reevaluate how our lives are going and decide to make changes. This year, let's make sure that we put some more effort into our spiritual lives and grow closer to the Lord. This will take different forms for different people. For some, it will mean starting a regular quiet time with the Lord. For others, it will mean increasing the time spent with the Lord and maybe adding Scripture memory or reading through the Bible at least once in the year. I would encourage you to spend some time in prayer and ask the Lord what changes you need to make to draw closer to Him. It will be time well spent.

Those who have followed me for awhile know I love sketches. For this card, I used Mojo Monday Sketch 459. I was gifted some Anna Giffin paper and red sequins as part of a card kit. I used those papers and added some sequins from my stash and a heart die cut for the embellishment. The centers of the sequins have Nuvo Glitter Drops in them.

Cardstock: The Paper Studio Heavyweight cardstock (cream card base), Recollections (cream, kraft), Bazzill (Peanut Fudge, Peanut Cluster)
Patterned Paper: Anna Griffin
Stamps: WORDart by Karen (Ephesians 6:11), Lawn Fawn (Woodgrain Backdrops)
Ink: VersaMark
Tools/Embellishments: Taupe sequins (The Paper Studio), Red Sequins (unknown), Nuvo Glitter Drops (White Blizzard), Simon Says Stamp embossing powder (clear)

I hardly ever use sketches, Stephanie, and I think I should more often!
Yes this verse by Karen Murray is agrand one for years start ... especially in battle of life we need the armour of the word!
... and this year is one I hope to be in the word more and for that reason I’ve started a new blog, Wonderful Words of Life, as a devotional blog.
I’m not sure where the Lord is taking this but it’s one that’s been on my heart for a while. I hope you might pop over to bottom link and follow along. I’ve linked an item to WAW on the very first post.
Every blessing of Lord for 2019... till He comes.
