Welcome to Word Art Wednesday and another opportunity to partner with us to encourage others through our personal art work. We deeply appreciate everyone who links their creations to our challenge blog because we are always inspired. We have a wonderful network of new and familiar friends who come Word Art Wednesday each week, and we want to say thank you for your support.
Karen Murray's WordArt this week is especially beautiful, both in graphic design and in her selection of scripture. Amazing how she chooses all my favorites! This one is especially powerful for me and my family this week as we praise Him for His divine intervention.
As some of you may know, my son and his wife have been facing a number of challenges during their first year of marriage. She is finishing requirements for a more permanent status of her legal immigration, and my son is sponsoring her sons so they can join them here in the United States. My daughter-in-law is also in a difficult struggle to terminate the guardianship of a woman who pretended to help her when she was brand new to our country. It's a long story and though I have very strong feelings about how this woman betrayed an innocent young immigrant, I choose to focus instead on how God is working in the situation to reunite my three precious grandchildren with their mother and to experience the joys of being a real family.
This has been a long trial in every sense of the word, but we are seeing God's hand move in miraculous ways. The boys immigration process was miraculously expedited through no human effort. It is clear God intervened. Today was a hearing regarding guardianship over my granddaughter and we can praise God for some clear indications He is working there too. We believe it will not be long before the three children are living together again under one roof....and under the shelter of the Almighty. So I just want to offer personal praise to my Sovereign God who rules the universe and still cares enough about us to step into the deepest part of hearts and lives. He has proved to us He is indeed alive, He is a Rock to us when we are on otherwise sinking sand, and we want to exalt His name for His faithful and merciful love to us.
My older grandson, CJ who is 10, has been praying faithfully for months to be reunited with his mother and my son, "Daddy-Matt," and the little sister he hasn't seen for 2 years. He was very protective of her and he continues to be so concerned about her situation. His faith has amazed me, and I have prayed that God would listen to his prayers, and move on his behalf to favor him and grant him the desire of his heart. What a precious young man he is, and he has already found his way to my heart. I've prayed that God would grant CJ favor so that his faith would be increased and he would have the blessing of exalting and praising the name of Christ. I believe we are witnessing answers to all our prayers. My God IS a rock, and I love to exalt His name for His great mercy.
My card for this week was very, very simple. I thought it would be a great one to send to someone when I rejoiced in their good news. I just tore a page from an old hymn book I found.
